Answer

Believe it or not, sometimes we find that patients who are very conscientious with ensuring they regularly cleanse, do still have this problem. Sometimes, the problem is actually worsened by “over cleansing”. I think what is most important is to ascertain WHAT is causing you this problem in the first place. For example, if it is a hormonal imbalance, then no amount of cleansing is going to clear this up for you, as you need to sort out the cause. We have exceptionally good products that can help you with persistent break outs if you don’t want to go onto medication, but this will also only help you up to a point.

If it’s not a hormonal imbalance, then the most likely cause of the issue is an imbalance in the functioning of the skin. There I can definitely make recommendations that will certainly help you. In my clinics we use a product called Clarity, it is made by Lamelle, and in this range there is also a fantastic oral supplement that will help you bring these break outs under control.

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.
