Answer

Thanks for that… Your skin is going to be a bit of a challenge. You havent given me very much info, but if i’m "readin between the lines", it sounds as if you’re not really on a particular type of regime or homecare routine with your skin, and so your skin just deals with the day in whatever way it needs to, just to protect itself. If I’m wrong you’re going to have to write in and send me some more info! Most of the time, if we can get a patient onto the right routine for their skin, we can get that skin functioning effectively and efficietly and your "skin’s habits" are then quite predictable. For male patients, i always try to keep it very simple… Cleanser, Moisture, Sunblock. You need to use a cleanser that is not too soapy, a moisturiser that is going to hydrate and a good sunblock to protect that skin from the sun (in that way preventing sundamage and discolouration of the skin). Can you find all of that in a simple, inexpensive range… YES! Lamelle’s Nourish Range is excellent. Alternatively, Environ, or Nimue Man.

Good day Dr. I developed dark marks around my mouth in December and tried using everything but they wouldn’t go away,I then went to the pharmacy where the gentleman there mixed persivate with aqueous cream and told me to use it,I used it and they went away however I’m worried about the effect it will have on my skin,I haven’t stopped using it. Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
