  9. You can try Nivea advanced whitening cream and honestly, I will suggest you to try applying tomato juice daily in the evening for 15 minutes. This will lighten the complexion.

  10. I think that can be small dots of hardened sebum, I too had that. so, you will have to make sure that you scrub the face 3 times in a week this will keep the clogged pores clean. If you can take steam once in a week for 5-6 minutes that will be good. Just take the steam and apply a face pack then a light oil free moisturiser.

  11. Hi Money, In that case you can try Cindamycin phosphate gel by galderma every night. This will clear the pimples. Scrub your face 2-3 times in a week and use a light cream like Nivea advanced whitening moisturiser.
