WBVDEC Chapter 64 – Acne (1)
In January, the weather was getting colder and colder. When Jiang Yu woke up in the morning, she made a cup of brown sugar water and brought it to the crew, planning to drink it when she was cold. After filming, she deeply felt the difficulty of being an actress. Sometimes, for the sake of the plot, she had to wear very little clothes, or it was the winter but she needed to jump into the river to take a bath or something. Her joints were often frozen until numb.
"Taro ball!" Su Ye came over.
Jiang Yu smiled and replied, "What's wrong, Xiao Ye?"
Su Ye wailed in pain: "Jiang Yu, help! I'm going to attend an opening ceremony tomorrow, a few variety shows to be recorded in a few days, a new TV series is about to start filming, and I also have to attend events, but I have acne on my face. I hasn’t disappear after a long time, if it goes on like this, how can I go out to work?"
After hearing this, Jiang Yu was stunned for a moment, and then asked, "Is it so serious?"
"It's more than that! It's like a rotten face. I can't find any good skin all over my face. I can't cover it with a powder either!"
After she finished speaking, Su Ye sent over a selfie. It showed pimples all over her face, and many of them had whiteheads. It was quite severe.
"Why is it so serious?" Jiang Yu frowned.
"I don't know either! I'm losing weight recently and have been taking slimming pills. Do you think it has something to do with it?"
"Slimming pills?" Jiang Yu had a headache when she heard these three words. "Don't you know about after effects of slimming pills with so many documentaries out there? How can you be as naive as an underage girl?"
Su Ye knew that Jiang Yu cared about her, so she said, "Am I not looking for beauty? There will be scenes with naked backs in my upcoming film and I don't want to find a substitute. I want to play by myself, so I need to lose weight to make my back line more beautiful."
"There are many ways to lose weight. You can exercise, dance, do yoga. Do you have to be so extreme?" After Jiang Yu finished speaking, her brows were furrowed.
Su Ye could only mourn. Because of Jiang Yu's obscenity, she didn't dare to talk back at all.
As a stylist, Jiang Yu was used to seeing beauty-loving men and women. For those who love beauty, there were almost no people who didn’t go on diet all year long.
Losing weight was a very common thing, but Jiang Yu just didn’t know how these people’s brains grow, because they always listened to some strange secret recipes. There were actresses in the entertainment circle in her previous lives who ate live bugs for weight loss in the name of beauty. Live insects could easily drill holes inside the body and get into other organs, threatening life safety! However, that type of bugs was actually sold for a sky-high price of hundreds of thousands! This means, there were still people who buy it, so seller still supply it.
Jiang Yu had also seen people injecting chemicals to promote fat burning, and people who ate cotton or sew their mouths up with needles! In order to lose weight, just for the sake of crooked beauty standard, these people did everything they could without considering the consequences.
Jiang Yu often wanted to pry open the heads of these people to see what the structure was inside.
Of course, in reality, there were also many people who still take diet pills. There were weight loss clinics everywhere on the street. As everyone knew, these weight loss methods couldn’t be tried willy-nilly. "Well, you come to me first, and I'll take a look at your acne."
Su Ye knew that Jiang Yu often had strange skin care products, some of which were researched by Jiang Yu herself. After hearing this, she said: "Okay, I'll go to your place now."
Jiang Yu sent Su Ye her address.
Just as she was about to log out of WeChat, Jiang Yu inadvertently saw Gu Shenliu 121's account sitting quietly in the chat history. She was stunned for a moment. She found that she hadn’t contacted Gu Shenliu 121 for many days. Relationships never needed to be maintained deliberately. There were only so many people that could be maintained around each person, so it was normal for people to come and go.
Think about it, Jiang Yu put down her phone.
When Su Ye came, Jiang Yu was filming. The scene was a scene between the female lead and the second female lead who suppressed her in the drama. Jiang Yu had watched many scenes with similar plot so she filmed it smoothly. It was filmed smoothly without NG.
Fang Huai couldn't help but applaud.
"Taro ball!" Su Ye greeted everyone.
"Xiao Ye." Jiang Yu went to the side and rested.
"It's a good shot! I'm so excited! The slap in the face you did was very well done. I have a hunch that your drama will be popular!" Su Ye put her arms around Jiang Yu's shoulder.
"I learn from you." Jiang Yu smiled. When she looked up and saw Su Ye's outfit, she just couldn't help crying.
Today, Su Ye was wearing a hat with tulle on all sides covering her face. She looked like an immortal in a martial arts drama.
"Why are you dressed like this?"
"If I let people see my face, it will be bad right? If I get photographed by the paparazzi, I'll be on the news again."
The two went to the dressing room. Jiang Yu carefully looked at the acne on Su Ye's face, and then said: "Your acne has become inflamed. You have to avoid using makeup to let the acne heal first."
"Then what should I do? I still have to work!" Su Ye heard the words and hugged Jiang Yu for help: "Taro Ball! You must save me!"
Jiang Yu smiled lightly and glanced at Su Ye. "Will you eat that diet pills?"
"I won't eat it. I won't eat it even if it kill me!"
Jiang Yu patted Su Ye's head and lamented: "You, don't you know that the main ingredients of diet pills are clenbuterol hydrochloride? Most have over limit clenbuterol and many even have T3 ingredients. These drugs can't be eaten indiscriminately. False propaganda and irresponsible increment on the dose of the drug, this kind of pills can cause diarrhea, acne breakouts, gastrointestinal disorders, arrhythmia, thyroid problems, and even sudden death!"
"So scary?" Su Ye was frightened. Although she always knew that diet pills were dangerous, she only thought that they would hurt the stomach and cause diarrhea, and that its weight loss effect would rebound easily. She never expected that there would be so many side effects.
"Yes!" After speaking, Jiang Yu removed the foundation on Su Ye's face and applied Avène gentle lotion to Su Ye to help her calm her skin. After that, she looked at Su Ye's face under the light and said: "Your condition is not difficult to deal with. I will prescribe a few herbs and you can your assistant to buy them, grind them into powder, and bring them to me."
Soon, Jiang Yu wrote the prescription to Su Ye. "Go!"
In the afternoon, Su Ye's assistant brought the grounded medicinal materials, and Su Ye's manager also followed after hearing about it.
Seeing that Jiang Yu was going to use the medicinal materials on Su Ye's face, the agent was anxious and said: "Su Ye, many doctors have seen your face and said there is nothing to do but use nothing on the face for the time being to let the acne heal slowly on their own. But now you are messing around with things, I'm afraid it will get worse and worse."
After hearing this, Su Ye glanced at her agent and said, "Jiang Yu is my good sister, I trust her."
"Su Ye, face is not a trivial matter! If doctors can’t solve it, even if you look for Jiang Yu, what can she do?"
Su Ye heard that her agent’s words were ugly. She couldn't help looking at Jiang Yu's face, and said anxiously: "Taro Ball, don't blame her, she is a straight person and can't hide her words!"
Unexpectedly, Jiang Yu's face was the same as usual. People could not see any displeasure. She still smiled lightly, "Have you discussed it? Will this medicine to be used or not today?"
The agent was about to speak, but was stopped by Su Ye, "Use it! Taro ball, I believe you!"
"It can't be used!" The agent firmly disagreed. She frowned and looked at Jiang Yu. She said, "Jiang Yu, you are still young. Some medicinals are useful on your skin, but it does not mean that our family Su Ye can use them. Besides, these things also have no certification and no testing, if there is a problem later, who should I turn to?"
"Cheng Yu!" Su Ye said angrily, "Don't say it, I believe Jiang Yu!"
Hearing this, the agent's face was displeased, and the two stood at a stalemate for a moment. Finally, Cheng Yu sighed and stood on the side angrily.
The atmosphere suddenly became embarrassing. Su Ye's manager was actually her own sister-in-law named Cheng Yu. The sister-in-law was very good to Su Ye. The only bad thing was that she was overprotective and liked to interfere in Su Ye's private life. But the sister-in-law was not bad, just too inflexible.
Cheng Yu frowned and stood aside. She was unable to understand why Su Ye believed Jiang Yu so much. Yes, Jiang Yu helped Su Ye before, and because of her help, Su Ye's audience relationship became better, but this didn’t mean that she could just trust Jiang Yu in everything, especially about her face.
Su Ye relied on her face to eat. As an actress, her job had been scheduled until the end of next year. Now that Su Ye's face was already bad enough, if there was more problem, what should she do?
Thinking of this, Cheng Yu hesitated on the side, full of worry.
Jiang Yu smiled lightly. Her face still calm and she did not lose her mind because of Cheng Yu's questioning. She did not speak from the beginning to the end. She only quietly mixed the herbs and finally made a paste with so mineral water and applied it to Su Ye's face.
"That's it?" Su Ye was also a little worried. It's not that she didn't trust Jiang Yu, but, although Jiang Yu was very good at skin care, acne was not an ordinary thing. Many people had been fighting acne for more than ten years and had not recovered. The acne on her face had already started for several days. She had seen doctors everywhere in the past few days, and even doctors in well-known local hospitals had been visited. Most of the doctors only prescribed some anti-inflammatory drugs to her, but after these drugs were applied, there was no obvious improvement, so Su Ye had completely lost hope.
Now Jiang Yu was applying medicinal herbs to her, Su Ye only felt that her face was cold and very comfortable.
Forget it... Su Ye closed his eyes and thought: "Forget it, let her go! It's already like this, how can it be worse?"
An hour later, Jiang Yu came back from filming and said with a smile, "Xiao Ye, you can take the mask off."
After speaking, Jiang Yu cleaned all the things on Su Ye's face and washed it with clean water. Then, Jiang Yu smiled and said: "Okay, open your eyes!"
Su Ye swallowed and then looked at the mirror. After glancing at it, she stood up abruptly. She came to the mirror in disbelief, touched her face repeatedly, and said in surprise: "Jiang Yu, you are amazing! The pimples on my face, why are they gone?!"
"Gone? You're exaggerating. Most of the pimples are just shriveled and no longer inflamed. Also the whiteheads have been expelled." Jiang Yu smiled.
"How did you do it?" Su Ye still didn't believe it. She stood in front of the mirror and looked at her face repeatedly for a long time. She saw that the pimples on her face had actually become less swollen so it looked like it disappears. In just an hour, all the pimples reduced in size. Although the pimples were not completely gone, the color was much lighter. Many of them were even close to her original skin color, so they were not obvious at first glance. Su Ye had no doubt that now she only needed to use some loose powder to cover up the remaining traces a bit and she could make the acne seemed completely disappear.
"Jiang Yu! You were sent by God to rescue me, right?" Su Ye was stunned.
At this moment, Cheng Yu heard Su Ye's yell from a distance, her heart sank, and she thought, there was really was a problem!
"Su Ye, I told you not to take the medication, you don't listen! Are you okay now? The acne on your face has become more serious, right? If we continue like this..." Cheng Yu walked in with a frown and stared at Su Ye in a stunned manner. She couldn’t believe that what she saw was real at all.
