2305_aashi_: I have large pores and pimples. Is there any solution to this? Please suggest.
BB: Large pores are an indication that your skin produces excess oil, which is why you are getting pimples. To fix this, we suggest using Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner. It not only shrinks and tightens pores, but also unclogs them and removes excess oil and thus helps reduce breakouts. After cleansing your face, use a cotton pad and apply toner all over your face with it.
_yashasvi_jain_: How can I get rid of my acne scars?
BB: Acne scars are the worst but you can get rid of them by using the right skincare products. You can treat the affected areas with tea tree oil. It is an elixir for oily skin as it controls oil, fights acne and lightens the scars. Apply a few drops of tea tree oil on acne scars and blemishes before going to bed every night and rinse it off in the morning.
ishii.chaudhary95: How do I remove blackheads and pimples?
BB: Blackheads and pimples are both outcomes of oily skin. Exfoliate at least twice a week to clear out oil and dirt from pores. Use a mild face scrub like St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub and gently exfoliate your skin to deep cleanse and unclog pores. Keeping your skin clean and drink water, as it will keep acne at bay.
