Combating Dryness

Question

Hi

I recently moved to a new province – Bloemfontein to be exact. I have combination skin but ever since moving here I feel that my skin is dryer and Have also noticed a lot more dry patches. How can I combat the dryness? I also started my first job and as such, spend most of my time in an air-conditioned room. Last question, which sun protection factor is best for my skin colour? I am sensitive to the sun and burn easily.

Answer

Thank you so much for your enquiry. Unfortunately, changing the climate you live in does have a very big effect on your skin, and of course, being in air-conditioned surroundings just compounds the problem. You really need to look at a skin range that is going to protect your skin’s barrier and prevent the loss of water from your skin, and then you also need to make sure you have really good sun protection. I would highly reccommend you have a look at Lamelle’s Serra Range, as well as Heliocare’s Sun protection Range, their FX gel is a really brilliant sun protection product. If you’d like me to get you more information, please contact via our Skin Renewal Website www.skinrenewal.co.za

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?
