Common Skin Problems

Mr. Tayyab provides an overview of the six common skin problems and how to treat them.

No matter how soft, fresh and flawless, our skin is at the time of our birth, but as we grow older and hit puberty, our system went haywire, and our skin became a beauty nightmare. Every single day we find ourselves waking up to a new problem while we are already struggling with an existing one. Imagine getting a huge nasty pimple on your cheek on prom night when you are already trying to deal with those ugly crow's feet under your eyes. The skin becomes more prone to such problems with age.

There can be many reasons behind skin issues such as unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits, lack of sleep, stress, etc. Although some people somehow manage to maintain their skin and keep most of the issues at bay by sticking to a healthy lifestyle and a consistent skincare routine, it is not easy and practical for everyone to keep up with it. However, that does not mean that those who do not maintain their skin do not have a right to look beautiful. Here are the six most common skin problems people face and what can be done to treat them.

Dark Circles

Eyes are the most beautiful facial feature for most people, and getting crow's feet or dark patches under the eyes is the worst thing that can happen to them. Sadly, it will be difficult to keep your dark circles away if you are someone who is not able to sleep for a decent number of hours or have a stressful routine. However, numerous treatments can help you fight dark circles. From using home remedies such as teabags to ready-made eye creams, there are many alternatives available. If you are looking for something long-lasting and reliable, it is a good idea to consider a non-invasive cosmetic procedure done to treat your dark circles. Dore Aesthetics in Singapore is one of the best places to get cosmetic procedures done under the supervision of some of the best dermatologists and cosmetic technicians. Dore Aesthetics offers several light and laser-based treatments that can help you get rid of your dark circles for good.


Pigmentation is a prevalent problem among women above 30 years. The skin becomes dull as you grow older, and patches and discolouration start to occur, which can kill your beauty. While regular exfoliation is a good way to avoid pigmentation, you can opt for a pigmentation removal cosmetic procedure and get rid of your discolouration.

Sun Damage

Unless you hibernate in a cave where sunlight cannot reach, sun exposure is almost impossible to avoid. The scorching heat of the sun and the harmful UV rays are one of the worst enemies of your skin. The only way you can protect your skin from sun damage is by making a high SPF sunscreen lotion your best friend. Make sure that you know your skin type when choosing your sunscreen.


Those horrible pink bumps filled with white fluid in the middle of your face look not only downright ugly but are also somewhat painful. An even worse situation is having a lot of them spread all across your face. Acne breakouts can occur due to skin sensitivities, clogged pores, lack of oil control, and even hormonal imbalance. It is impossible to deal with acne without following a skincare regime that involves regular cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturising the skin. You need to make sure that you have a healthy lifestyle and you cut down on oil from your diet. If you are facing acne issues due to hormonal imbalance that it is recommended to consult a dermatologist instead of trying home remedies.

Ageing and Wrinkles

You cannot grow old without getting those deep age lines on your skin. It is common for the skin to get loose and saggy as you grow older. Wrinkles on your skin are a sign that you are ageing. It is strongly advised that you start using anti-ageing creams as soon as you hit 25 years of age. Early usage of anti-ageing creams is a good preventive measure that helps in avoiding wrinkles for a longer period. If everything else fails, there are face uplifting procedures that can do wonders and can make your skin look fresh and youthful again.

Frown Lines

Frown lines are a common problem that starts to occur on your forehead if you frown too much. People above the age of 30 years are more prone to getting frown lines. Investing in a good day and a night cream that has retinol can help in dealing with frown lines. Retinol is an excellent skin rejuvenation agent that triggers the growth of collagen, which allows the skin to tighten and regain its structure.
