Question

Hiya! I keep hearing that sunblock is essential but is it really? I have fairly pale skin that tans but not burns easily. Can you recommend one that isn’t going to make me break out and one that won’t disrupt my makeup, please?

Answer

Hi there. Yes, sunblock is absolutely essential and needs to be used every day, even when it is raining. Prolonged expose to UV rays does not only decrease the collagen in your skin, but also destroy the DNA in the cells, it also depletes your skin’s anti-oxidants as well as your skin’s immune ability.

With this said, it is vital to protect your skin on a daily basis. I would recommend that you use Heliocare SPF 50. This sunblock will protect your skin from the harmful UV rays, and also contain anti-oxidants to fight the damage that has already been caused.

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?

Question

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.

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!
