Answer

Wow, I can see that this is really frustrating you a great deal. What we need to do is treat the CAUSE of your problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms. I’m going to suggest a treatment and home care regime for this issue you are having. Firstly I suggest you go on to a good skin care supplement, like Lamelle’ Acnevell capsules so that we can have some treatment from the inside. Secondly, I am going to suggest you use products from a range that will help to get those comedones (blackheads) under control so that you dont have to continuously squeeze the skin, causing more damage. I suggest Neostrata’s Refine range. And lastly, the inclusion of a few superficial chemical peels would go a long way to help you kick-start this process and get that skin functioning properly and will also to help refine the texture and roughness that you are describing as "holes" on the skin. If you need help in sourcing any of these products or treatments, please feel free to contact your nearest Skin Renewal Branch. You can locate your nearest branch by looking at www.skinrenewal.co.za

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)

Question

Hi Dr Maureen, I have oily skin and in my 30s. I’m looking for a skincare treatment that will assist with clearing my skin and keep the oiliness at bay as well as serve as an anti aging. It doesn’t have to be in the same jar. I’m currently using Mineraline Time-it products for anti-aging, but it’s not doing anything for the oilyness and the random breakouts. Please could you advice.
