Oily face with huge pores: Skincare routine from dermatologist

Oily face with huge pores: Skincare routine from dermatologist

Written By Dr Surbhi, MD Skin

Oily skin tends to secrete excess oils that clog your pores leading to huge pores that give an orange peel appearance to your skin. The key to close these pores lie in hitting the cause that is excess oil secretions. In this article, I have highlighted the skincare regime using homemade products (mostly) to deal with excess oils on your face that in turn would reduce the size of existing pores and prevent new pores. However, lager pores would need in addition a prescription or procedure from a dermatologist.

 

Let us get started!

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 for rediscovering 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 these products at home. I am describing your morning, evening and weekly regime in tables given below:
