Hi doctor,

I am a 20-year-old with excessively oily skin, despite not consuming excess fast or oily foods. My skin is too sensitive. Even after using a sunscreen powder with SPF 40, my skin is getting excessively darker after getting out. What should I do?




Welcome to

I understand your concern.

Take a capsule of Perfectil daily. Apply vitamin C cream at night. Continue your sunblock. Use Cetaphil cleanser for oily skin. Use for two to three months. Skin will glow but do not expect white color as it will not be achieved.

I hope this information will help.
