Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be suffering from this problem because of excessive sun exposure, dust and pollution as well. You need to lessen sun exposure. Use daily facewash like Clearasil which is very good in removing blocked skin pores like whiteheads and also blackheads. Secret to great skin is to drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Brisk walking for 40 minutes a day does wonders to skin because sweating opens skin pores and prevents excess oil accumulation naturally. Avoid fried food, junk food, oily food which is a cause for bad skin in such situation. Avoid stress which can also make skin oily. Do Yoga, Pranayam and deep breathing exercises to help you relax. Get 6-8 hours of sleep a day. Mild skin massage with fingers also improves blood circulation to the skin and good skin health. Avoid using cosmetics. You can use sun screen SPF25 to prevent UV light induced skin damage from the sun. The spots can be shown to Dermatologist as there is effective way to remove them by special creams containing hydroquinone which is skin bleaching agent. Also Microderm abrasion and laser therapy will help get rid of spots. Consult your Dermatologist for effective solution in your case.
