You might not see a dermatologist often, but when you do, know what to ask?
So, with good skincare products on your bathroom shelf, you probably won’t need to visit your dermatologist very often. But if you do experience skin issues at some point, it’s good to know the type of questions to ask.
Everyone’s skin is different, so it’s not a bad idea to visit a dermatologist regardless, to get some tailored advice (particularly on the right skincare products to use).
Here are five questions to explore, next time you see a dermatologist.
What is my skin type?
Okay, this one you might already know, or at least, have an idea about. But it’s good to get a professional opinion so you can make a conscious decision about the skincare products you need. If you have an oily complexion, you want to choose skincare products that’ll clean your face to remove excess oil and dead skin cells that clog pores.
Which skincare products will hurt me?
You’ve heard us talk about the dangers of supermarket-bought skincare products. But, a dermatologist will help determine any ingredients that you should avoid. You might be sensitive to something that’s found in many skincare products. Avoid flare-ups by empowering your body with naturally-made cleansers, creams and oils.
How do I get rid of scars & sun spots?
Those years sunbaking starting to show? This could be reason enough to visit a skincare specialist. They’ll provide you with a number of skincare product suggestions – most likely including Nerium’s Age IQ moisturiser set. We have one standout Nerium-exclusive blend, SAL-14™, that features the antioxidant bidens pilosa and mauritia flexuosa fruit oil. This helps address discoloration and other signs of aging, mainly from the sun.
Where is this acne coming from?
Adult acne is more common than you might think. It’s caused by a range of factors, from skincare products to hormonal imbalances. A dermatologist can help you get to the root of the problem (and offer advice regarding the skincare products you should use). Diet, stress and environmental influences also play a role.
What foods should I be avoiding?
Speaking of foods, allergies and intolerances (hello gluten!) can wreak havoc on your skin. You could be consuming more sugar than you realise in those ‘healthy’ muesli bars you love. Certain ingredients can hide in foods that aggravate your body. Change your diet (and your skincare products), and you’ll see the difference. Your dermatologist might suggest a food allergy test to see what you’re sensitive to.
