  5. hi, i have mild to moderate acne on my face for more than 15 years now. recently i had a massive break out on my face. i doubt if it is beacuse of my make up which i wear to cover my blemishes. two months back i had been to a dermatologist and he prescribed azithromycin for 5 days and nadoxin (morning gel ) and microbenzac (night get). my skin is super oily however i cant go out without a make up on as my face is full of marks and blemishes. please advice

  6. Hi Jibsey,

    Makeup blocks the skin pores which leads to more acne. In that case, try using oil free makeup products like foundation. I can understand when the skin is blemishes we cant do without the makeup. You can try applying tomato juice everyday fr 15 minutes. that helps in lightening the marks. take steam every week for 5 minutes which deeply cleanses the pores. I got lots of benefits by steaming my face which was very oily a couple of years ago.

  13. Hi Puja, I had such a problem earlier and then I used to steam the face for 5-6 minutes once in a week and the problem lies in the clogged pores which steaming can surely help. After the steaming use a rice flour face scrub by mixing with some honey to scrub the dead skin. Try this and it will surely help.
    In the night time, Use Clindamycin phosphate gel by Galderma this will combat the bacterial infection.

  14. Hi Kiran,

    I can understand pimple prone skin is hard to manage. You should steam your face once in a week for 5-6 minutes then try a face scrub. then use a face toner. This will keep the pores clean.
    Use neem and multani pack 3 times in a week this will surely help but you will have to be consistent as when yous top using it then the problem will arises earlier.

  15. You can try multani mitti face pack, it really helps.
    You should also scrub your face as this removes the dead skin and gradually the skin becomes smoother and even.

  18. Hi Joyshree,
    I would suggest you to apply clindamycin phosphate gel every night before going to sleep. Use a gel based sunscreen in the day time. Steam your face once in a week for just 5-6 minutes, then scrub the face. Use lemon juice in the evening for 10 minutes then rinse the face. This will surely work.

  30. Hi Premsagar,

    I will not suggest those creams since when you use them then the problem starts again.
    I will suggest you to scrub the face 2 times in a day and use multani mitti face pack to keep the pores clean. The problems that you have having is majorly due to the blocked pores.
    therefore, You can do these 2 remedies that I suggested.
    Moreover, use honey on the ace daily. Just take some on the fingers and smear on the entire face then wash after 20 minutes. This will further keep the skin clean and fades marks from pimples.
    Don’t worry, you can try this routine and you will see the change.

  32. Hi Shubham,

  41. Hi,

    I have bio oil and have used that. But I wont advise you to apply on the face. Rather you can apply some tomato juice every night and wash in the morning. The marks will be lightened. You can use a day cream with SPF in the day time. Other than that you dont need anything else.

  43. Hi Benisha,

    Honestly, when I get dark spots due to acne/pimples, I will make sure to apply tomato juice daily on the face and then wash after 30 minutes.
    And you should also scrub the face 3 times in a week, this will bosot the cell renewal rate and the dark spots will get lighter.
    Just try it, it will work.

  46. Hi Suman,

    Honestly, I too have tried a lot of expensive product but the way natural treatments give relief nothing can give that. You can try benzoyl peroxide gel on the face at night. this will clear the acne and for the fairness. you can apply some tomato juice and honey mixture. Wash after 20 minutes. I too do this daily and this has made my oily skin better.

  47. Hi Tousif,

    You should apply some tomato juice every night when you go to sleep. Then wash in the morning. Also scrub the face 2 times in a week to lighten the dark spots on the face.
