From Caythe

Question

I’ve been struggling with pimples/acne for years now and my skin is also becoming dryer. Are tissue oils recommended for people with acne?
Don’t they collect dirt?

Answer

Thank you for your question Caythe. Basically, you’re asking me three questions here, so I will start with the easiest. Firstly, do Tissue oils collect Dirt? No Tissue oils certainly do not collect dirt. However, if you have an oil or ANY product on your skin and you expose your skin to an unhygienic, dusty or dirty environment, then your skin will certainly have been contaminated, yes. Next question, was whether or not tissue oils are recommended for oily/acne skins. It’s really not a good idea to apply oil to an area where the skin is already producing excess oil. Applying a Tissue oil certainly isn’t going to improve your acne in any way. The last issue you raised was the fact that you have been struggling with your skin and acne for years. If this is the case, then I would highly recommend that you see one of our Doctors to try and help you. It is important to understand that Acne is not just related to the skin. While it manifests on the skin, it very often has an internal trigger, so it’s not simply a case of just applying some products to fix it. Are you close to one of our branches?

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.
