Sarah, You can opt for a skin lightening cream in consultation with your Dermatologist or opt for skin peeling sessions under his guidence. Sun protection is a must in melasma.

Happy Healing

General & Family Physician Dr. Radhika Thyagaraju's  Response
open pores can be tightened using creams which tighten the pores. But the most important thing is to allow the secretions from the pores to drain without clogging so that it does not form pimples. Wash you face regularly. Use a oil free sunscreen lotion. For the melasma a skin lightenening lotion can be used. I would advise you to consult a dermatologist in this regard. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
