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.

I have been using various skin ranges over the years, most resent being the Rooibos range, but nothing seems to get to the area I’m targeting.

I’m trying to get started on a new product range, but there are so many products, how do I know which it the best choice for my skin needs?

Question

Hi Dr Allem, recently I’ve been having a few breakouts on my forehead and cheek area. I’ve been to a dermatologist before and he really helped me treat my skin when it was at its worst, he also told me not to pick on/pop my pimples and I don’t, till this day. My question is, if I’m not popping my pimples, I’m living a somewhat healthy lifestyle, I drink up to 3 litres of water per day, then why do my pimples/ breakouts leave me with blemishes and how can I treat them?

Question from Adelaide Motata

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I used to use serums as part of my daily skin care routine (combination skin) – and they worked well for me. But hit hard on the pocket. So I started looking into incorporating organic virgin coconut oil into my routine. I am now at the point where I don’t use serums any longer, and just use my coconut oil in conjunction with my normal face moisturizer – even as a moisturizer for my eye area. It hasn’t caused any breakouts, irritations…it’s worked out quite well.

What are your opinions on using organic virgin coconut oil as part of one’s skin care routine? Do you feel that I should still have a serum in my routine?
