Dry face with melasma: Follow these skin care steps from dermatologist

Dry face with melasma: Follow these skin care steps from dermatologist

Written By Dr Surbhi, MD Skin

Last updated: 18/05/17

Dark patches, tanning, Melasma or any other kind of pigmentation on the dry face is the most troublesome both for you and experts. It usually takes a long time to respond and recurrences are common.  This is so because most us forget to treat the cause for getting these dark patches and do not make sun protection an essential part of skincare.

The story gets even more difficult with dry face, because it might not tolerate strong skin lightening ingredients. So, let us find out how you can vanish mild pigmentation at home, but for stubborn cases, you will need consultation from a dermatologist along with this skincare regime.

 

The destiny of your skin is in your hand...all it needs is discipline! Before we go into further detail, I must tell that you need to put your heart and soul into this skincare regime to get the results. The regime is simple and it involves:

  • 3 daily steps in the morning and night: CTM- cleansing, toning and moisturising
  • 2 weekly steps on Sundays that include scrubbing followed by face pack.

The key to rediscover your beauty is discipline to follow the steps given below for at least 3 months. Though I can't promise you flawless skin but you can definitely gain a healthy skin. Also, as you change from the chemical laden products to green skin care products, your skin might need time to adjust. However, you should not get excessive redness, burning, rash, or breakouts with this regime. In such cases, discontinue the regime because we are using potent herbs and essential oils that might NOT suit some of you. Lastly, you still have to use sunscreen and night cream from the market because a high level of expertise is needed to make this products at home.
