Answer

HI there
Thank you so much for your question. The action plan for your condition is going to depend on the severity of the condition. So you are constantly having many of these lesions on the skin, we may need to look at prescribing oral medication together with something topical. If you would prefer to try and combat this problem without going on to prescription meds, I would suggest you do the following: 1) Get yourself Lamelle’s Acnevelle tablets – this is a skin care supplement for problematic skin, and it will help you to get your skin under control. 2) You must be using a good facial sunblock every day otherwise you are going to have another problem, ie pigmentation after the lesions have cleared up. 3) Get onto products that will help you to get the skin functioning normally again. Lamelle makes a great range called "Clarity" for this very purpose. You do not have to go onto the entire range. You could start by just using the cleanser and the Active Control Gel just on the actual spots and then your sunblock over the whole face every day. If you need assistance in locating these products you are welcome to contact any of our Skin Renewal Branches and we can assist you. www.skinrenewal.co.za

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 :)

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.
