Answer

Thank you so much for your enquiry. To sort out the dark spots and pimples, we need to focus on 2 things. 1) We need to stop the pimples from occuring, as inevitably it is the inflammation from the pimples and sun exposure that leads to the dark spots, 2) we need to lighten the dark spots that are already there, and we need to even out your skin. If you are keen to just sort this out with products, then I would recommend the following: 1) Treat from the inside. Get yourself some Acnevelle tablets (these are made by Lamelle and are available at any Skin Renewal Branch), 2) You need to be using a night cream that contains potent Vit A, such as Luminesce Evening Glow (by Lamelle); Night Fader Plus (by Nimue); Retinol 0.5 (by Skin Ceuticals); Tri-Retinol Complex (by Skin Medica). Any of those would be great for use at night, and this will help for your dark marks as well as preventing new spots, and it will also help you to start evening out your skin’s texture, sorting out the roughness you are experiencing. 3) Then, for use in the day you need 2 things. You need to get yourself a spot treatment (such as Clarity Active Control Gel) to put just on the areas where you have active spots on your skin, AND you need a good hydrating sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin and prevent any more dark spots from forming. Something like Lamelle’s hydrating sunscreen in the Dermaheal Range. For any of these products, or if you would like to consider possibly incorporating some treatments to help you sort your skin out, please feel free to contact us at your nearest Skin Renewal Branch, our doctors and our therapists will gladly help you with any further questions or concerns you may have.

From Masoodah Ebrahim

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.

I have oily skin and get breakouts, but my main concern is my pores. They are fairly noticeable and I’m really not happy with them. Will regular facials help and what kind should I do?

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 :)
