Answer

Thank you for your question. The truth is that you can keep on trying different products and changing from one to another, but unless you actually get your skin properly looked at, analysed and discuss your options with a qualified aesthetics professional, you are always going to be disappointed. I highly reccommend that you go and at least just have a consult with a medical aesthetic doctor or therapist. You dont HAVE TO do anything other than just listen to the information that they give you and discuss with you and you can then decide from there what it is that you want to do. There is no need to be afraid. If you like, you can make an appoinment to come and see me. I work in Cape Town (at various locations), and Jo’burg (at various locations), and Hilcrest (in Natal). You can find me or one of my very capable colleagues at any one of the Skin Renewal branches. Please find your nearest clinic at www.skinrenewal.co.za

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.
