Oily skin with pigmentation: Skincare regime from dermatologist

Oily skin with pigmentation: Skincare regime from dermatologist

Written By Dr Surbhi, MD Skin

Last updated: 18/05/17

Are you looking for a solution to reduce dark spots/ patches or tanning? Do you have oily skin?

 

Well, you have landed at the right place. This skin care regime will help you in reducing oil secretion along with fading tan and light brown dark patches or spots. However, you might need a prescription for skin lightening night cream for the more stubborn dark patches/spots from your dermatologist along with this skin care regime. So 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 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 these products at home. I am describing your morning, evening and weekly regime in tables given below:
