Hi There. I Am A 26 Year Old White Female. My Mom And Family Are

Question

Hi there. I am a 26 year old white female. My mom and family are prone to wrinkles and dry skin. Should I start using age defying or preventative skincare ranges for my face already or does it make my skin more dependent on extra nourishment when it’s not necessary yet?

Answer

Prevention is always better than cure. If you know this is a big issue for you, then my advice is to get on to the best products and maintain the good skin that you have as long as possible. I advise our patients in their mid to late twenties to start with their Botox and Fillers earlier, rather than later, because the long term effects of being on these prevents the formation of the lines and wrinkles in the first place, and long term use of fillers assist your own skin’s collagen production, so you wrinkles will not form as quickly. As you get older you will then not need to have excessive treatments as some of the patients who come to us when the problem is already there. If you’re someone who is nervous of having injectables, there are plenty of other fantastic preventative treatments, so there really is so much that can be done for you. I would say rather get started earlier and prevent, than wait for the problem to be present before doing something about it.Prevention is always better than cure.

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
