Question

I think I may be getting breakouts from my makeup, but I need makeup to cover my breakouts. It’s also painful to apply makeup to my spots. Is there a brand I can use that’s skin-friendly or do I have to go without makeup for a while until my skin clears?

Answer

Hello, thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your concern, but there is good news. Lycogel is a medical breathable foundation specifically indicated for people that struggle with breakouts, sensitivity and post procedure skin. This healing camouflage contains ingredients that will speed up recovery time and decrease inflammation. I would however recommend that you visit one of our Medical doctors at our clinics, to find out the cause of your acne and prescribe treatments and products accordingly. Please visit https://onlineskinshop.co.za/product-brand/lamelle-serra/  for more information on the products. Also visit www.skinrenewal.co.za  to find the branch closest to you to book a consultation.

Hey! My dermatologist told me to go on antibiotics for my skin but I’m worried that I’ll just break out as soon as I stop taking them, and I don’t wan to be on them forever. Is that true and what can I do? I don’t have loads of money for different treatments.

Hi Maureen. Is it possible that your skin can get used to lots of products and break out when you stop using them? I have a lot of products in my routine and whenever I skip some because I’m tired or busy, my skin breaks out. How can I keep things quick and easy please?

I recently bought a magic makeup remover face cloth with microfibers. Is this good to use on my skin? It works well but it feels like it might be exfoliating too much.

Question

I’m 28 years old and have bad breakouts along my chin. It’s very demoralizing because they won’t go away – I’ve tried everything. I’ve read it might be gut-related but I don’t know where to start fixing that. Is there something I can do for a quick solution? Growing very impatient and very demoralized!
