Hi Dr. Maureen, Can You Please Recommend The Best Summer

Question

Hi Dr. Maureen, can you please recommend the best summer moisturizer containing retinoids for anti-aging on the South African market?

Answer

Hi there! WOW, that’s quite a question! What I can tell you is that there are quite a few brilliant moisturisers containing retinoids available in SA, specifically designed for anti-ageing. Skin Medica makes a brilliant product called the Tri-Retinol Complex (and the step up from this, the Tri-Retinol Comples ES). Skin Ceuticals makes a product called Retinol 0,3. Neostrata makes a great moisturiser with an SPF containing Retinol, called Matrix Support. Lamelle makes a night cream called Evening Glow that contains Retinol. The Environ Range contains Vitamin A. I can go on mentioning quite a few products, but at the end of the day, there really isn’t a “One size fits all” moisturiser. You have to match the right moisturiser for YOU with your skin conditions. In general, I suggest using retinoids at night, and use a moisturiser with great anti-oxidants and a good SPF during the day.

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.
