Dry skin requires repeated application of moisturisers . Dry skin is mainly encountered in winters and the dryness reduces in summers.

One can use creams , lotions etc on a daily basis. People with dry skin should use moisturising soaps.

Freckles occur as a result of overactivity of the melanocytes esp in fair individuals. this usually happens due to excess sun exposure.

Sun avoidence is a must in stopping freckles.

Q-switch lasers, peels are the treatment of choice in freckles.

Pimple marks are taken care by fractional CO2 lasers.
