Dr Alexandra Bonsall
Hello! I’m a consultant dermatologist in Aberdeen. I’m a member of the Royal College of Physicians, the British Association of Dermatologists and the Scottish Dermatology Society. I studied biomedical science and medicine at the University of Aberdeen, and have a postgraduate certificate in aesthetic medicine from Queen Mary University of London. My main focus is medical dermatology and I commonly treat chronic diseases like eczema, psoriasis and acne, where lifestyle can have a significant impact on disease burden. I feel that our skin, our general health and our lifestyle exist in an equilibrium together, with each improving or deteriorating depending on the others. Stemming from my interest in this I have spent the last 18 months writing a book called Skin Care for Cold Weather, which is excitingly currently being prepared for release by the publisher. Our weather has a significant impact on our lifestyle, health and our skin, and it has been such an interesting pleasure to write about it.
