Question

I’m on the pill (yaz) and it’s the only thing that’s been able to help my spots, but it’s giving me bad headaches. I really don’t want to go off of it, is there something I can do instead?

Answer

Hi there, I am sorry to hear about your concern.

I would recommend that you speak to your gynaecologist about your headaches. From a skin care point of view there are various treatments available to treat breakouts. Chemical peel, laser and light therapies has been known to combat acne and acne related concerns.

Using the correct homecare products will also help to keep the spots at bay. Just bear in mind that acne concerns, such as breakouts, are mostly due to hormonal imbalances, so going off the pill will initially cause an increase in spots.

I’ve never used an acid on my face before because I grew up thinking chemical peels could scar your face. How would you suggest a newbie starts using acids? My main skincare issue is ageing.

Question

I suspect I might have hormonal acne, because I breakout quite badly a week or so before my period. I’m in my late 20s and really thought this would have stopped by now? I can’t really afford to see a dermatologist. Is there something I can do? I’ve heard giving up milk helps, does it? Thank you!

Question

Whenever I workout my face gets very red and blotchy, and the redness stays for ages. Apparently this isn’t good for your skin, but I don’t want to give up exercise. Is this really a problem and can I do something about it?

Question

My hair has always been quite thin, but healthy – even though I’ve been bleaching it for a few years now, it grows fairly quickly. Is there something I can do to make it thicker? Also, why is it that my hair grows quickly, even if my nails don’t? Thanks in advance:)
