I’ve Noticed That The Skin On My Hands Is Really Starting

Question

I’ve noticed that the skin on my hands is really starting to show my age…(which my face does not!) What do I do? Any well-priced recommendations for creams or treatments?

Answer

This is quite a common problem amongst many ladies. Often we suddenly realise that our hands have aged and we’ve taken better care of the face than the hands. There are various things we can do to help you. It really depends on how severe the problem is and what we can see presenting on your hands. We do wonderful hand rejuvenation packages at Skin Reneal which can nclude anything from peels to laser to carboxy therapy… it really depends on what your hands need. I would suggest you consider coming to us for a consult and we can tailor make a package that best suits your specific needs. As far as your home care goes, this is very important. At the VERY least you should be applying a good quality broad spectrum sunblock every day come rain or shine! I can highly recommend Heliocare. I would also suggest you get yourself a good Vitamin A product to apply on your hands at night, and depending on how your hands look, we may have to include the use of a growth factor product such as Dermaheal. It’s a bit difficult to give you “generic advuce” like this if I haven’t seen your hands, but definitely I would say get a good sunblock for daily use, a good exfoliator for weekly use and a good, active Vitamin A product to apply at night (something like The Skin Ceuticals Retinol 0,3 or Skin Medica Retinol serum or even Lamelle’s Evening Glow cream). Please let me know if I can offer you any more assistance.

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.
