Are skincare products made for women better than those made for men?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredSkincare products for women are not necessarily better or worse than those for men. What can be most helpful is to choose products that are well-suited to your skin type and your skin's needs. For example, if your skin is acne-prone, your dermatologist may recommend looking for noncomedogenic products that are unlikely to clog pores. If your skin gets irritated easily, products formulated for sensitive skin may be best for you. Your dermatologist can help you determine the kind of skin you have and the types of products you should be using.
What areas of my skin are most likely to develop melasma?
Discovery Health answered
Areas of your face that get a lot of sun exposure are most likely to see patches of melasma. This can include the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin and upper lip.
How should I cleanse my skin if I have lichen planus?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredLichen planus is a very common bumpy, itchy rash that appears on the skin, mouth, fingernails, or scalp. Though it can go away on its own, it's best to get a diagnosis from a dermatologist if you think you may have the condition. Besides offering you treatment options, your doctor can advise you on the best skin-care routine and may recommend that you try an oatmeal bath to soothe the skin and calm the itch. You can find oatmeal bath products at your local pharmacy.
