Thank you very much for your enquiry. In your case, with the concerns you are describing, there are a few possible causes and therefore, a number of possible solutions.
The dry, flaking itchy skin in winter is fairly common and 9 times out of 10 is due to an impaired barrier. With the correct barrier repairing products, this is normally fairly simple to correct (have a look at the Serra range by Lamelle).
The appearance of sudden breakouts, leaving marks on your skin is another challenge, as here it is important to ascertain the cause in order to correct the issue. Have you had acne before? Have you changed medication or contraceptive pills recently? Have you made any adjustments to your skincare products? Are you trying out any new supplements or health products?
I’d love to be able to help you with this so if you could give me some more info or if you could possibly come and see me or one of our doctors at your nearest Skin Renewal branch, we can gladly get to the bottom of this. You can locate your nearest branch on www.skinrenewal.co.za
