Question from Lindi

Question

Hi Maureen. I am 34 years old and after birth of 2 kids and lots of lack of sleep I experience a “hollow” look under eye and wrinkles all around eyes. Will Eucerin Volume Filler Eye cream help a bit as well as the Hyaluron Filler day and night cream for first wrinkles over entire face. I have a very dry skin on face and body. Thank you. Lindi

Answer

Essentially what you have here are two primary problems:

  1. The first problem is the loss of hydration in the skin, which also affects your skin tone, texture and accounts for fine lines that start to form on the skin. This issue you can treat with the 2 products  you have mentioned, they will help you with the restoration of the lost skin hydration.
  2. The second problem that you have mentioned is volume loss (described by you as a hollow look). Volume loss cannot be fixed by ANY topical cream that you apply regrettably. However, volume can be corrected by being replaced, and there is no better fix for volume loss than injecting a filler, these are often made of Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance manufactured by the skin. Under eye filler is a common procedure, when done correctly and by a registered and qualified medical aesthetic doctor, you should not have any problems in correcting that issue.

Question from Lizelle Lloyd

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.
