Oily Skin With Breakouts Mainly On Cheeks

Good day Dr Maureen I have a very oily skin and normally get very painful pimples on my cheeks that leave really dark marks. I also seem to have blocked pores, what can I use to help with the oiliness, spots and the pimples. Regards Phelisa


Hi there Phelisa. There are a few things you can do. I would start off by getting Lamelle’s Acnevelle tablets to help you control the oiliness and the breakouts. They are not terribly expensive and they are available from all of our Skin Renewal Branches. Then you need to make sure that you are applying a godd facial SPF (of at least SPF 30) every single day to prevent those dark marks from forming, and to stop the marks that are already there from getting any worse. So your daily routine should be something like this: In the AM: Wash the face with a gentle (not too soapy) cleanser; Put on a light moisturiser; Apply your sunblock, and take your Acnevelle tablets. In the PM: Wash again with your cleanser and apply your moisturiser. If you want my advice on a good product range that will give you a mild cleanser and moisturiser and SPF that is quite affordable, then I would reccommend the Lamelle Nourish Range.
