My Mom And I Heard Good Reviews About Neutrogena And Thought I

Question

My mom and I heard good reviews about Neutrogena and thought I should change from Ponds and the Rooibos products. I do have a nice skin , I am more or less a skin type 4 , not quite olive skin. I think more important to you is that I have a combination skin.Not very oily though, get the odd spot but not a problem. What I would like to know is what to buy in terms of skincare products? Thank you for your help. Rene

Answer

Hi there Rene. Thanks so much for your enquiry. At the end of the day what you need to think about is the following: 1) What are your concerns? What is it that you would like to see, results-wise, on your skin? 2) What is your skin care budget per month? 3) Are you on any medications or do you have any other conditions that may have any effects on your skin? There are many great products out there, all with different active ingredients, all with different modes of action. The goal here is to find what the most appropriate combination of ingredients is for YOUR specific skin, and make sure that you are using something that works for YOU. The only way you are going to be able to get to the answers to those question, is to have a thorough skin analysis and skin consult. There’s no point in “just trying” one product after another, this wastes time and money, and will leave you dissatisfied with your results (or lack of results). So I would very highly recommend that you make an appointment with one of our therapists or doctors at one of our Skin Renewal Branches, so that your skin can be correctly analysed, and so that you get on to what is best for YOU from day one. If I had to give you very “generic” advice, it doesn’t sound to me like you really have any specific complaints, so it would seem that you are more interested in maintenance. In this case I can highly recommend the use of ranges that are high in anti-oxidants (such as Lamelle’s Nourish range or the Skin Ceuticals serums). You also have to make sure that you use an appropriate facial sun block every single day. This is vital!

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 have combination skin(Oily T-zone; Dry cheeks) with hyper pigmentation on jaw line + some acne scars. 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?
