HI,

I’m 26 and I’m struggling with a dark eye area. This started in my teen years and it doesn’t go away. I have tried every product I can think of, changed my diet and I have enough rest. I’m not sure what could be the issue. Please could you assist?

Question from Chane Venter

Hi, I’m a 21-year-old caucasian woman. I frequently get one or two blemishes on my cheeks and chin, they leave dark spots /scars, though. I have a lot of scarring from previous blemishes on my cheeks as well. What products would you recommend? If possible, preferable not too expensive
Thank you x

Question from Penelope PENNY

Hey there I am an aspiring beauty blogger and I would like to know about the effects of climate and climate change on skin. I have been watching a lot of beauty and make-up reviews on YouTube and other fashion and beauty blogs and this has been a recurring topic among influencers. Does this mean that seasonal changes require me to change the products that I use on my skin with every season or can I use the same products throughout the year?

Thank you do much for replying to my question, I really appreciate it.

Question from Dorothy Basson

Hi Dr Allem
I am a lupus patient and have rosacea skin. I have developed a skin allergy/ rash because I used Eucerin anti redness for extra moisture during winter. I normally use Bioderma AR and Skinceuticals Phytocorrective. It always worked fine, however due to dryness I tried Eucerin which caused such an allergic reaction that I can not get it to calm down. The dermatologist and doctor prescribed Tetralysal, Prednisone, Travocort, which did not do much then Advantan Ointment, Advantan milk, Epimax mixed with a cortisone…. there is pretty much not much I have not tried. I have a bright red cheeks and neck. My problem is that even the Bioderma and Skinceuticals now make me flare up. I also have Lamelle Serra products. I’m desperate for a product and foundation that I can try? Please can you recommend something? Anything from Skinceuticals kills me – I have tried them all.
Thanks and kind regards
Dorothy
