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’m in my mid 40s and generally have a very dry skin. I get small, hard white pimples around the area below the sides of my mouth. While I follow a good cleansing routine, they don’t ever really clear up. I’m concerned that there may be a hormonal cause as they do get worse certain times of the month. Any advice?
Thanks, Sunette

Question

I’ve been suffering from acne my entire teen and tween years, at some point in my teens it got to a state whereby it was classified as severe acne and put on a very strong dosage of Roacuttane… thankfully it’s cleared with normal breakouts when it’s that time of the month. My main issue is I can never find a product that agrees with my skin or that actually clears up the oiliness and dry patches. Is there a skin care regiment that I can follow or a product that can help? PS: I’m exceptionally hairy as well and low threshold for pain.
