Answer

Ah, yes! Our good old friend, pigmentation… one of the main reasons I have to go to work every day! Pigmentation is a condition that you have to look at as a "disease". Pigmentatin itself is not a disease, but you have to treat it as though it is, because the minute you stop managing it… it just comes back. You need to do 3 major things every day. 1) You need to use a product that is going to slow down your skin’s ability to make more pigment in the pigmented areas. (EG: Lumixyl; or Phloretin CF; or Lytera Serum; or Brighter Concentrate). 2) You are going to have to use a very good facial sunblock every single day. (EG Heliocare sun protection). 3) As far as possible, avoid sun tanning and being out in direct sunlight during risk times. If your pigmentation is really severe then I would suggest having a course of treatmeants to clear as much of it as possible so that you can then start managing it. We can help you to get the best treatments as well as the products you need at any one of our Skin Renewal Branches. Why don’t you call us and let me, or one of our doctors take a good look at your skin and let’s get that pigmentation under control for you.

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.
