I'm 26 years old living in a tropical coutry India.. I'm having normal to oily skin. Whe I'm in my teenage I had few pimples 4 or 5 per month. Somehow they are gone as time passed without using any medicines but they have left small holes on my face wherever I got the pimples especially on my cheeks the area below the eyes. They are clearly visible as a group of holes which make my face look ageing. Please suggest how can I get these holes closed again and make my face look glowy & healthy.

I would try using a resurfacing product like microdermabrasion. This is great for smoothing the skin and getting a healthy glow. Should only be done no more than 2 x a week though.

What is microdermabrasion? Is it a ointment or lotion. What should be done with it? Please NATURAL explain me in detail.

Microdermabrasion is a general term for products that have rough grains in them to help buff away the surface layer of skin. Although that sounds like it would be harsh - it's not really. There are many products and treatments that use this method both in home and in a clinic. Usually done on the face, chest, neck, arms and hands. What it does is help remove that epidermis level of skin - the dead skin cells on top of others that are in the process of maturing (that top layer is the Stratum Corneum). This is the layer that has minor imperfections in it. Microdermabrasion takes place at that level and remove dead skin, allowing the underlying newer skin to show thru. The crystals in the cream get rubbed against your skin so that they grab and remove dead cells. Look for products that do not contain a lot of fillers and find ones that contain nutrients and moisturizer so that while it's removing the dead cells, it's also hydrating the new skin in the same step.

It works great for cleaning out clogged pores and for those that might be too sensitive to Retin-A. There are conditions where it isn't suited like: Active rosacea, erythematosus, vascular lesions, widespread acne, herpes, warts, open sores, skin lesions, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, lupus, diabetes and those that take anti-coagulants or have fragile capillaries.

You sound like the perfect candidate for tca cross method procedure. What you have sounds like acne scarring. Google it and you'll find oodles of information. Take care. Razzy

If you are not able to get microdermabrasion done on your skin then perhaps taking vitamins that are enriched with vitamin e and c, which will promote healing and begin helping scar tissue repair itself.

The skin type you have plays an important role. The Oily skin pores look bigger while dry skin pores are tighter looking. The pore is not large but may look large because of dead cell and sebum accumulation inside it. Force removal of whiteheads and blackheads may increase the size of the pores.

The secret from deep skin pores? Keep your skin free of excess oils. That does not mean that you strip away the acid mantle totally. Just keep the oil manageable so that it does not look shiny. Use cleansers that are mild and preferably enriched with AHAs to keep the acid mantle undisturbed.

Use exfoliation agents such as topical retinoids to remove the excess dead skin cells that accumulate around the pore. Treat blackheads, because they draw attention to the pores. Skin protection from sun such as sunscreen SPF 30 can reduce the enlargement of your pores.

You may try this natural remedy to reduce it. Mix table salt and buttermilk into a paste. Work well into the area where pores tend to be enlarged. Remove with warm water and repeat several times a week until the condition clears up.
