Hi, use emodel or moiz cleanser as facewash. Nioclean gel is effective on acne only for a month so don't use it for longer time. Use venusia or excela moisturizer 2 to 3 times a day to improve dry skin. If acne is persistent, please see a local dermatologist or consult online for proper assessment and treatment.

Please use very good sunscreen even at home. Use natural lightening agents like kojic and glycolic over the counter creams. If still does not resolve you can contact experienced cosmetologist/ dermatologist who can help you with professional solution like q switched ndyag or lightening peelsor co2 laser. Don't worry most of the times it is reversibly.

I am a 32 year old female, 2 months back I applied a face mask and followed it up with concentrated shea butter. From the next day, my face started breaking out and I got pimples on both cheeks and also forehead. I consulted a doctor and he advised me to use clindamycin gel, however, the acne got worse. Hence I consulted another doctor who advised me to get a blue light treatment, the acne reduced considerably. But for the marks I applied honey once and I got break outs again. I consulted the same doctor and did a glycolic peel. Although the situation has improved, I am still getting small bumps on my face which ultimately leave marks. Also, the dark spots from the initial pimples still remain. Please help.

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. These factors can trigger or aggravate acne: hormones, certain medications, diet, stress. To prevent pimples, eat fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided. Don't peal pimples, as they tend to leave scars. Stop using soap on face. Instead take a spoon of milk, add a pinch of turmeric (haldi). Mix n apply on face with the help of cotton. Leave for a few minutes then wash off. It’s a good cleanser. If skin is dry then apply moisturizer like coconut oil. For swollen pimples, gently apply ice for a minute or so. Just don't keep the ice on so long that it irritates your skin. Tea tree oil can kill bacteria. Some people use it to treat minor skin irritations, including acne. There isn't much research on how effective it is, but tea tree oil is safe to put directly on your skin in a diluted form. Try it on a small area first to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction. Simple honey mask--before applying this mask, rinse your face with warm water to open up pores. Then apply honey and leave it on the skin for 30 minutes. Rinse the honey off with warm water; then rinse again with cold water to close the pores. Yeast and yogurt mask for oily skin--oily skin is prone to acne, and this home remedy can reduce excess oil and help clear acne. To make the mask, combine 1 teaspoon of brewer's yeast with a little plain yogurt to create a thin mixture. Apply it thoroughly to all the oily areas and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water; then use cold water to close the pores.Apply aloe vera juice/gel from its leaf (fresh), not from readymade gels available in market. Remove skin of an aloe vera leaf. Take /scoop out gel. Apply this gel to your face skin. Wash with plain water after an hour. Homeopathy is a very effective for this problem n has very encouraging results.

Hi! pigmentation can be due to multiple causes, like nutritional deficiencies like b12 deficiency, ferritin deficiency, hormonal imbalances like thyroid, pcod, sensitive skin, genetic factors, obesity etc .we should examine and find out the cause and prescribe accordingly. Most of the times, spots will respond to azaelic acid/kojic/ glycolic acid creams. But be sure to start the cream at night along with sunscreen application in the morning. Your skin seems to sensitive ,better you use mild cleanser to prevent from dryness and redness. Many procedures like chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, lasers etc can treat you better and give good results. Please do post pics or consult online for getting good guidance and treatment. Coming to the actual question, melacare cream triple combination cream containing hydroquinone, steroid and tretinoin which gives fairness and glow for short duration of time but if used for longer period of time, face becomes rebound dark due to withdrawal due to steroid .please do visit online for better advise and treatment.

Hi! epiduo gel is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and adapalene gel, which works very well for acne. But ,less effective for spots. Most of the times, spots will respond to azaelic acid /glycolic acid creams. But be sure to start the cream at night along with sunscreen application in the morning. Your skin seems to sensitive ,better you use mild cleanser to prevent from dryness and redness. Many procedures like chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, lasers etc can treat you better and give good results. Please do post pics or consult online for getting good guidance and treatment.

Please never use undiluted dettol or savlon over face, as they can cause burns over face. To heal the skin, use very bland, hypoallergenic moisturiser over face twice daily. You should wash your face with gentle cleanser that does not contain any glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid. Do not peel your skin or touch the area. Avoid direct sunlight. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with spf 30 or above during daytime.

Glycolic acid peels are considered safe for all skin types. People with dark skin tones should use mild- to moderate-strength peels only, and should work with a medical or cosmetic professional who specializes in treating dark skin. People with sensitive skin should use with caution. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

Hi, i'm a male in my early 20's. I had recently gotten an episode of acne, most of them are gone now. But they've left marks all over my face. I have dark spots on my forehead, temples, and both the cheeks. I want to get rid of them asap, it really hampers my confidence. What would be the best course of action considering I want to get rid of it soon. Also, is glyco 6 ointment really helpful?

Hi. Acne spots wil take some time to reduce. Fastest results can be seen only with chemical peeling. Among topical agents kojic acid/ glycolic acid/ vit c serum works wel in acne spots. Must use a sunscreen during daytime. For time being you can use glyco 6.visit dermatolgist for assessment of severity of acne spots and suitable treatment options. Thanks.
