This will cause the skin to produce even more sebum (oil) and you will get stuck with even oilier skin and more break outs then you had to begin with. Skin care that is gentle, not drying and that treats the skin correctly is the way to go when it comes to oily and acne skin. That along with a good moisturizer and sunscreen is the way to take control.

Hyperpigmentation: The Whys and Hows of treating Melasma

One of the most common conditions seen today by skin health practitioners is melasma. Melasma is also one of the most stubborn and toughest-to-treat pigment disorders.
This type of hyperpigmentation presents itself in dense patches, often in a symmetrical pattern. It is usually seen on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip and chin, and occasionally on other sun-exposed areas, such as the arms and chest.
