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).

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

From Masoodah Ebrahim

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.
