Answer

Hi there! This is a great, but also difficult question. I would say that there are a few things you need to consider when choosing your eye cream. It’s not so much your chronological age that you need to look at when choosing your eye product. You really need to look at the condition of the skin around your eyes. Do you have dark circles? Is there pigmentation around the eyes? Has the skin around the eyes started sagging? Or have wrinkles started forming? I’m a firm believer in using eye products that contain some growth factors so as to slow down the ageing process of the eye area, and I’m also a firm believer in starting Botox fairly early to prevent those lines and wrinkles forming so dramatically around the eyes. There are so many great products out there, but you really need to choose the one that is going to give you the changes you want to see around your eyes. So for something like dark circles, I would recommend Skin Medica’s eye products. For purely anti-ageing purposes, I would say Lamelle’s Dermaheal eye product. If you want some moisture and some lightening and hydration, then Neostrata’s Bionic Eye Cream. Again, there are so many options to choose from. If you really struggle with product and treatment choices, I will always recommend that you get the proper advice from the start instead of spending thousands of rands trying one thing after another. Speak to a medical aesthetic doctor who can consult you on treatments and products and get the best for your skin from day one.

Question

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

Question

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

Question

I’m 60 years old and relatively well preserved, but the veins on my forehead stand out, which is exacerbated by hot weather or if I bend down. Can they be removed? or concealed with subcutaneous fat injections?
