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

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.
