Good Day. I Would Like To Start Using The Neutrogena Range,

Question

Good day. I would like to start using the Neutrogena range, maybe the scrub and moisturiser or can you maybe advise what set is best? My skin is a bit sensitive but not very, it is oily as well.

Answer

Thanks so much for you enquiry. I do not know the Neutrogena range very well, so I cannot comment on what it contains or whether it is the best range for your particular skin condition. Generally if someone is sensitive I would not recommend a scrub, as scrubs do cause some sensitivity on the skin as well. Normally I would recommend and enzymatic exfoliator that does not need to be rubbed or scrubbed, so it doesn’t cause any abrasion on the skin. The products I do recommend in this case would be something like Cathepzyme from Lamelle, or Nimue’s exfoliating enzymes. Moisture is always important, so definitely a good moisturizer is a great idea, BUT just as important, if not MORE important is the use of a good broad spectrum SPF every single day. You will probably find that if you protect your skin in this way, your skin will really improve a great deal. If the oiliness bothers you there are great options to get this under control. Sometimes you can solve this problem by just using the appropriate cleanser in your daily routine. Something like Lamelle’s Clarity Cleanser or Skin Medica’s Purifying Foaming wash, or Skin Ceuticals Blemish and Age Cleanser. So there really are some wonderful options for you. For your sun protection I can highly recommend the Helio Care Range. I hope I’ve been helpful.

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.
