Q: I've just been put on oxygen therapy and the doctor has said I'm free to use whatever creams/cosmetics I want as long as they are water based rather than petroleum based. I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction.
I have dry skin and very dark circles, so any advice as to a moisturiser which is water based and something to cover the dark circles would be very helpful.
Alison: If you can't use petroleum-based products then that includes all mineral oil derivatives as well. The ranges we have that are petroleum oil-free and water-based are Elemis, Liz Earle and AD Skin Synergy.
If it's a moisturiser that you're looking for, then try a light formula- Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream can be used on the eye as well.
