Answer

Good day to you! I’m so sorry to hear that you are battling with this issue. It sounds a lot like you’re suffering with quite a congested skin (that is if I’m understanding what you mean by “stuff under the skin”). You will probably find that the particular products you have chosen are not appropriate for your skin type and condition. There are quite a few great options for you, but to really give you the best advice, I would need a bit more information from you. Can you tell me the following: 1) What products do you use (ie, Cleanser? Toner? Moisturiser? SPF?); 2) How old are you? 3) Are you a very active person or are you mostly in an office behind a desk? 4) What is your skin colour? 5) How does your skin feel in general? (do you experience oiliness or dryness or flaking or do you feel rough areas on your skin?). Once I have that information, I would be able to be a lot more helpful. In the meantime, what I am going to suggest is the following: Come in to one of our Skin Renewal Branches and let us give you a deep cleanse treatment to help you just get out a lot of that “stuff” that is bugging you. While you are with the medical aesthetic therapist, allow her to do a proper evaluation and analysis of your skin. She would be able to advise you as to the best products for you and why those products are appropriate for you. If you feel like your condition is REALLY severe, then I would suggest you come and see one of our Doctors and let them prescribe what is needed.

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.
