Answer

Thanks for that… Your skin is going to be a bit of a challenge. You havent given me very much info, but if i’m "readin between the lines", it sounds as if you’re not really on a particular type of regime or homecare routine with your skin, and so your skin just deals with the day in whatever way it needs to, just to protect itself. If I’m wrong you’re going to have to write in and send me some more info! Most of the time, if we can get a patient onto the right routine for their skin, we can get that skin functioning effectively and efficietly and your "skin’s habits" are then quite predictable. For male patients, i always try to keep it very simple… Cleanser, Moisture, Sunblock. You need to use a cleanser that is not too soapy, a moisturiser that is going to hydrate and a good sunblock to protect that skin from the sun (in that way preventing sundamage and discolouration of the skin). Can you find all of that in a simple, inexpensive range… YES! Lamelle’s Nourish Range is excellent. Alternatively, Environ, or Nimue Man.

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.
