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

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.

Question from Lizelle Lloyd

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.
