Dr Maureen Allem shares her advice on a commom skincare issue:
I have slight darkening around the mouth area. After doing some research I found that a product called " pycnogenol" helps. Which product in South Africa would contain this and what else do you recommend for this?
You are 100% correct in what you have researched. Pycnogenol is a fantastic supplement to be taking for your skin, especially when it comes to pigmentation. You do however, also need to ensure that you are applying a good SPF on a daily basis to slow down the cycle of the skin making more pigment. Lamelle’s Ovelle capsules contain the highest concentration of Pycnogenol, that I know of in South Africa. We stock these at all our Skin Renewal Branches.
