Answer

Thank you for your question. Going on to a contraceptive is quite often the "prescribed" treatment for problematic skin, and in most cases it really does help. If you would prefer to rather go on to an oral supplement that is specifically designed to help control breakouts on the skin, then I highly reccommend Lamelle’s Acnevelle capsules. You can also use their Active Control Gel as a spot treatment, specifically on any random spots that you may get. As far as using a BB cream goes, I really do not think a BB cream is by any means going to make you appear "made-up". A BB cream is really just a good general moisturiser and it’s a "Blemish and Beauty Cream", it’s not going to "cure" anything, it is simply going to help your moisture levels and general skin hydration.

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.
