Question

What, at my age (26), should I start incorporating into my beauty routine?

Answer

It’s always difficult to say exactly what a person needs for their particular skin, purely based on their age. If I must give a “generic prescription”, I would say that anyone who is becoming serious about their skin care needs the following: 1) A good, broad spectrum SPF (30+) to be applied EVERY day. 2) A potent topical anti-oxidant to be used every morning 3) A good potent anti-ageing product  (something with growth factors or retinol) to be used at night. Of course, it is also very helpful to include the use of enzymes twice a week to increase your skin’s cellular turnover, and if your budget allows, a specialised eye treatment (something with growth factors is always advisable).

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
