2 Questions: I Turned 37 A Couple Of Months Ago And Have Always

Question

2 questions: I turned 37 a couple of months ago and have always been blessed with looking about 10 years younger than I am… I’m now worried in going to start looking my age. As I’ve noticed the skin on my neck has started to age/change. What can I do to prevent even further ageing? I’ve also noticed that my hands are starting to show my age. What can I use on them to make them look young again? Thanks for your help!

Answer

It is most definitely not too late to start taking proper care for your skin. As we reach our 30s we are unfortunately in that position that our skin turn-over is drastically affected and the trusty old ‘over the counter’ products are just not going to give you what you need any more.

You need to get onto a good anti-ageing regime. Preferably combining the use of growth factors, vitamin A and powerful anti-oxidants. Look into products like Lamelle and Skin Medica, for you face, neck and hands. I would also recommend that you start going for some treatments for these areas that are bothering you. You have SO many amazing options, such as superficial chemical peeling, various types of laser treatments, to mention but a few. You may even want to consider starting to have some Botox and maybe a filler or two. I would say that the very best thing you can do for yourself right now is to go and have an in depth consultation with an aesthetic Dr who is well versed in treatments and cosmeceutical product prescription so that you can have your skin properly analysed and have the very best treatment plan worked out for your skin.

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I’m in my mid 40s and generally have a very dry skin. I get small, hard white pimples around the area below the sides of my mouth. While I follow a good cleansing routine, they don’t ever really clear up. I’m concerned that there may be a hormonal cause as they do get worse certain times of the month. Any advice?
Thanks, Sunette

Question

I’ve been suffering from acne my entire teen and tween years, at some point in my teens it got to a state whereby it was classified as severe acne and put on a very strong dosage of Roacuttane… thankfully it’s cleared with normal breakouts when it’s that time of the month. My main issue is I can never find a product that agrees with my skin or that actually clears up the oiliness and dry patches. Is there a skin care regiment that I can follow or a product that can help? PS: I’m exceptionally hairy as well and low threshold for pain.
