Answer

Thank-you for your question. To answer this question appropriately, you need to decide what it is on your skin that annoys you the most? Is there pigmentation? Do the occasional break-outs annoy you? Are you starting to see lines and wrinkles? You need to choose your products, based on the concerns you se on your skin. I can see you’ve given me your age in your profile… so for your age, if you have not got excessive sun damage and your skin is not too bad, I’d do the following: Get yourself the Nourish Cleanser, and the Nourish Revitalise Lite moisturiser (made by Lamelle). Then get yourself Clarity Active Control Gel to just put on your breakouts when they occur (not to use while your skin is clear). Get a very good facial sunblock of at least an SPF 50. I am a huge fan of the Heliocare sun protection range. If you would like to add a serum, then add something that is going to boost your skin. Something like a serum containing retinol or growth factors (you have some options here… Lamelle, Skin Medica, Skin Ceuticals to name just a few).

I have oily skin and get breakouts, but my main concern is my pores. They are fairly noticeable and I’m really not happy with them. Will regular facials help and what kind should I do?

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)

Question

Hi Dr Maureen, I have oily skin and in my 30s. I’m looking for a skincare treatment that will assist with clearing my skin and keep the oiliness at bay as well as serve as an anti aging. It doesn’t have to be in the same jar. I’m currently using Mineraline Time-it products for anti-aging, but it’s not doing anything for the oilyness and the random breakouts. Please could you advice.
