Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping on your nose….and I nipped the pimple on my face. It never left me alone; not even this Christmas. Sneaking up on me, the acne had led me to a state where I purposely forgot to wear my contacts so I could not see the ugly truth in the mirror. This year, I was determined not to let it spoil my look. I remember, Aunt Martha wishing me season greetings and then her loud cry about why she didn’t kiss me Merry Christmas! I was fit to play Black Peter.

Every change in the body of a girl is accompanied by a fresh outbreak of zits. Almost every girl deals with it.  There is more to acne than just a bad skin condition. The skin gets irritated by the even slightest of changes in the environment. One feels like scratching it off. Sigh! It will only leave your skin more blemished – and most of all, you end up scaring kids.

Youth is time of freshness and health. It’s a time when you are offered opportunities on a platter, and you’re expected to look your best; a time which is now spent fretting over how your old pimples have left spots while new ones are enthusiastically emerging. By the time your acne is gone your youth has left with it too. You know you’ll never look 21 again.

Well, this Christmas I was determined to discover a way I can liberate myself from these blemishes. Relying on injections and other painful treatments to rid the skin off this curse is scary even for the woman who shrugs at the sight of roaches and lizards.

Amidst this chaos and misery, I spotted Halcyon MediCare run by Dr Osman Bashir Tahir. Famously known as Dr OBT he promised effective solution to acne. For those with lighter burdens, there is Hydrafacial. Hydrafacial is an excellent monthly skin treatment to keep your pores clean, remove blackheads as well as whiteheads, prevents spots, and gives you smooth glowing skin; a session that takes around 15 to maximum 25 minutes only.

Just the other, I decided to give it a try. I was running late. It was only 30 minutes to The Christmas pageant at The Convent. Anyway, I stopped for the session as booked. Within a fraction of second after the Hydrafacial I all ready to hit the town. With no downtime, Hydrafacial can be taken no matter how busy your schedule might be. For those having acne in its worst form, such as Aunt Martha’s elder one, other skin treatments like laser and skin peels at Halcyon can also be given a shot.

Some daughters of Eve are subjected to another dilemma: unwanted facial hair. Luckily, it’s all taken care of in 6 to 8 sessions only. For other skin problems that are more generic, the Chiroxy Cream at Halcyon is a fantastic moisturizer to relieve dry, scaly skin during cold winter days. This is an oxygenating cream which is based on nanosome technology to penetrate the skin and to add moisture to plump and hydrate your skin.

Well, giving us many options to relieve us of our troubles, Dr OBT is the miracle man.  And just when you thought it’s too late for Holiday Makeover, Halcyon comes as the only saving grace!
