If you can spend more, Clinique has a very good product for enlarged pores, Clinique pore refining solutions instant perfector.

Hi Shakila, You can use AHA glow face wash in the night followed by Kaya pigmentation reducing complex on sopts and freckles followed by Kaya nourishing night cream. As for eye cream, Avarta under eye cream should be a good option. Also make sure you use a good quality spf in the day time. Remember for anti aging and pigmentation concerns, SPF is a must!
I am Saloni, Iam 31 and have dry skin..I have dark circles crows feet..m using sebamed q lift under eye cream but it didn’t help much for crows feet. Also, my skin has become dull even though I don’t go out in sun and use olive oil, almond oil, vitamin e oil, castor oil, grapeseed oil mixture daily along with blossom kochhar aroma magic cream. Please advise any change, a good night n day cream or any essential oil as I have very dry skin. Also something for my dark circle n crows feet. I can use essential oil mixed with carrier oil also.
Hi Saloni. For crows feet and dark circles, try using Avarta under eye cream. If you’re into oils, use rosehip oil for skin brightening. Make a mix of rosehip, grapeseed, rosemary and almond oil and apply in little quantities on your face and neck. As for a good night cream, I would suggest you to use Kaya skin clinic nourishing night cream. If your skin is dry, you can use Olay natural white day cream followed by a good sunscreen. And remember, for pigmentation problems wearing sunscreen is a must!
Also,there is mild pigmentation and my complexion has become dark.

Hi Mythily. Stop using Olay natural white night cream. For pimples and dull complexion use salicylic acid based cleanser such as Saslic D.S. in the night and orange or neem based gentle cleanser in the morning. Use Melaglow cream in the night for brightening and whitening. All the best!

Hi Mecha. For open pores, I would suggest you to consult your dermatologist for in office procedure such as Microdermabrasion or dermaroller. In the meanwhile, you can try using a salicylic acid based cleanser along with Vit C serum in your beauty routine at home. Ega is a good night cream to start with at your age. For sunscren, you can either use a medical sunscreen, Suncote gel by Curatio pharma or Lotus matte gel sunscreen with spf 50. Both are good options for normal to oily skin. Good luck.

Hi Pinky. For a brighter complexion, drink lemon + honey water in the morning on empty stomach along with a glass of orange juice every day. As for a topical skin lightener, use Melaglow cream daily in the night before bed time and remember to use spf in day time while using this cream. Best of luck.
I am 59 yrs old. My skin hv lots of blemishes…suggest me night cream. I am using lotus herbal papayablem cream for blemishes.
Hi Suman. If your skin can take chemicals, Demelan is a very good cream for reducing blemishes. Apply it on your spots and blemishes in the evening. Leave it on for 2 hours and then rinse and top it off with some good herbal night cream. Apply raw, natural Aloe vera gel twice daily on your blemishes.
I am 31 yrs old….i hv t- zone oily n rest is dry….i hv a acne prone skin. Whch day and night cream should i use n which face cleanser n face wash shud i use
Hi Payal. You would benefit from Purifying range from Kaya Skin Clinic. Vichy, Avene, and Proactive products are also great for acne prone skin if you want to go premium. As for some great budget products, you can try: AHA Glow face wash, L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh gel as day cream and top it off with Lotus Herbals safe sun UV Sunscreen matte gel spf 50, and as for night cream I would suggest you to use either Ega cream or Neutrogena fine fairness serum. All the best!

Hi Richa. Use Ega night cream for wrinkles and fine lines, Fair eye or L’Oreal white perfect eye brightener for dark circles. Use Demelan cream in the evening on spots. Leave on for 2 hours, wash face, apply melaglow cream. Use Vit C serum followed by good spf in day time.

Hi Nancy. Use Vit C serum day and night for bright skin. After Vit C, apply Melaglow cream in the night before bed time. Do use a good spf in daytime to prevent darkening.
Hi I am 27 years old and am having dark circles..I am currently using suncote gel as my sunscreen currently.. I get pimples occasionally.. Can you please suggest a good oil free sunscreen to be used under the make up…I have used ansolar but it clogged my pores and broke me out..also suggest me a good cleanser/facewash to clean my face at d end of the day..currently m using Cetaphil.. Is dat ok..or shud I change??
Hi Siya. Lotus Herbals matte gel spf 50 is a very good sunscreen for oily skin that you can easily use under makeup without clogging your pores. Use BHA based face wash for clear skin and clean pores.
Hi Anshulika fir the quick reply…. Cab you please suggest some BHA based face wash fr me…I have tried AHA glow face wash in d past but it made my skin luk darker…
Hi Siya. AHA, BHA and retinol products make the skin extremely photosensitive and hence prone to darkening if you are careless with your sun-protection. Also spending long hours in-front of the computer screen, laptop, tab or mobile phone makes skin photo-sensitive and prone to dullness and darkness. This has happened to me! Now I wear my sunscreen even in the night if I have to work late! If you are no careful with your sun-protection I would suggest you to stay away from acid products. You can safely use Cetaphil or Kaya Skin Clinic Soothing Cleansing gel. Herbal and organic cleansers could also be a good choice. And in case, you are careful with your sun protection, Saslic D.S. is a good BHA cleanser in the market.

Hi Maira. First of, make a habit of wearing a good quality sunscreen lotion daily without fail. For already pigmented areas, you can start with using demelan cream daily in the evening on dark spots and pigmentation after cleansing your skin. Wash off after two hours and apply Mela glow cream in the night on face before sleeping. Take multi vit (Skinvit) and vit C supplements. You would also benefit from chemical peel procedure. Seek a good dermatologist for the same. Hope this helps. Please update me with your progress. Good luck.
I m 29 Year old, my skin is fair, my skin was clean but frm the last two year there was a pigmentation on my face near eyes and my upperlips is gtng dark, plz, help me. I have tried most of de cream, but thr is no, result..

Hi Smirty. Thanks for writing in. First of stop using Goree cream. Take vit C supplements or drink a glass of orange juice daily. Also drink juice of half lemon with one teaspoon honey mixed in one glass of lukewarm water everyday on empty stomach. After this, wait for 45 minutes and eat 5-7 almonds soaked overnight. Eat one green/golden apple half an hour before every meal. Use AHA glow face wash and sunscreen of at least SPF 30 everyday without fail. As for day and night cream, you can go in for L’Oreal Paris white perfect laser whitening night cream and L’Oreal Paris white perfect day cream. For dark spots, use Demelan cream only on spots every evening after cleansing your face. Wait for 2 hours and wash off. After this apply a pea-sized amount of Melaglow cream followed by your regular night cream before going to bed. All the best and keep me posted with your results.

Hi Tanu. Thanks for writing in. You need to switch products depending on weather and season. During winters, look for hydrating ingredients in products. L’Oreal hydra fresh cleanser, Dove beauty moisture face wash, The Body Shop Vitamin E cleanser, Forest Essentials Delicate facial cleanser etc. are all good face wash choices for winters. Pick any depending on your budget. As for a good night and day cream for this season, I would suggest you to use L’Oreal Paris laser whitening range. For serum, Neutrogena Fine fairness serum containing retinol and vitamin C is a great option to pick.

Hi Manisha. Would suggest you to first give a deep thought to your diet. Try to reduce junk food consumption as much as possible. Drinks lots of water and increase intake of Vitamin C, A, and E rich foods. Citrus foods are your best bet when looking to brighten your complexion. Regarding topical skin products, you can use Kaya Skin Clinic nourishing fairness night cream, Vitamin C serum during the day under a good broad spectrum sunscreen and Fair eye under eye cream for dark circles. All the best and keep me posted!
I’m 26 and previously had an oily skin but now it’s quite normal. please suggest me a night cream and day cream which will help reduce my pimple spots on cheeks n dark circles.
Hi Shreya. You can use Fair eye cream for your dark circles. For spots and and blemishes, use vitamin C serum under your sunscreen during the day. For night time, you can use Kaya Pigmentation reducing complex for spots and Kaya nourishing fairness night cream for whole face. Hope this helps!
Hi, I’m 20 years old. I have combination skin which can be really oily in summers causing dullness, open pores and skin darkening. Plus I’m experiencing bumps on my face after using loreal paris white perfect facewash and night cream. Can you please suggest a good facewash and night cream for my face? Something that doens’t has harmful chemicals.
Thanks for writing in. For dullness, I would suggest you to use vitamin c serum. Wear gel based sunscreen (spf atleast 30) daily instead of any moisturizer or day cream during the day time. Indoors or outdoors, sunny or cloudy, make wearing sunscreen your daily habit. As for a good face wash and night cream for your concern, you can take your picks from: Kaya Purifying range, Vichy Normaderm range, Bioderma sebium purifying cleanser, Neutrogena Oil free Acne wash, depending upon your budget. Kaya fairness nourishing night cream is also a good option for dull skin. Use only a pea-sized amount to cover your entire face and neck.
Besides skincare products, heal your skin internally. Avoid junk food, eat more of fresh fruits and vegetables, drink lots of water and take daily vitamin C supplements and your skin should be looking and feeling healthy. Hope this helps. Keep me posted.
I’m 30 year old man, I’m struggling with dark spot, dark circle around my eyes, blackheads,oily skin and I’m getting dark day by day, please suggest me what should i use as day cream, night cream and sirum, what would be my ideal face wash and cream also suggest me what should i use for anti aging as I’m 30 now i want to control wrinkle n loose skin before its too late.
anticipating for your reply.
Hi Brijesh. Sunscreen and vitamin c serum are your best bet against dark spots and pigmentation. You can try Sunscross spf 50 lotion for oily and sensitive skin, VC 15 serum during day time under your sunscreen. For dark circles, use Fair Eye under eye cream, Aziderm 10% cream for dark spots and pigmentation marks to be used only during the night time after washing your face. Sun protection during day time is must while using this cream. Ega is a good night cream for wrinkles and sagging skin. But would suggest you to start using that only after you finish your treatment with Aziderm. As for a good face wash for oily and acne prone skin, look for cleansers with salicylic acid as active ingredient. Saslic D.S., Olay regenerist, Kaya purifying cleanser, Neutrogena deep clean, Garnier men acnofight all are good options to pick from. Hope this helps. Do keep me posted!
Hi ..I am pari ..27 years old…I have normal skin which breaks out sometime…because of black heads …pls suggest me some day and night cream to give glow and to avoid age affects as I will grow up…
Thanks In advance
I have extremely dry skin and uneven skin tone as well. Kondly suggest with a night cream/serum best for my skin type. And can i use both at a time or only one?
It is during the night our skin performs its repair function, night creams are formulated with different ingredients than regular moisturizers or day creams. However, not all night creams are the same. Just like it is wrong to confuse night creams with regular moisturizers, it is a mistake to believe that all night creams work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
You should take part in a contest for one

Great research on night creams for all skin types
