For The Last Year And A Half I Am Experiencing Bad Acne (black

Question

For the last year and a half I have been experiencing bad acne (black and white heads), and my skin is dry and rough. I did go for a blood test for my hormones, but this is not the problem. I also have dark circles around my eyes and just look terrible. I am not sure what to do. I take in at least 2l of water daily. I am not sure about products as I have made use of Isabella Garcia which after six months just made my skin worse, so would not like to spend money on something that will not help.

Answer

Hello and thank you for your query. Before starting any new skin care regimes, with the concerns that you have listed, it is best to consult one of our doctor’s. Depending on the severity of your acne, products may need to be combined with in- clinic treatments for best results. Therapy such as the Clarity range by Lamelle is directed at multiple factors and modified for individual patients. Most skincare ranges try to manage acne with varying success. Clarity by Lamelle addresses this problem with the “inside- out” principle that incorporates a topical treatment range together with an oral supplement. The Clarity range incorporates specialized and encapsulated ingredients to synergistically address the four primary factors associated with acne as well as the secondary concerns that include dark marks, scarring , skin dryness and sensitivity.

Hi Dr Allem, I have very sensitive lips. When I wear lipstick my lips become extremely dry and they peel the next day. Can you recommend a product to help and maybe even a lipstick brand that I could wear? Thanks so much!

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?

Hello Dr M.

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation.
