Want to discover the best ingredients to address your derma concerns? HELLO! has your face covered.

For Acne

To treat acne, start with thorough cleansing. Additionally, use a good chemical exfoliant for smoother skin and to clear sebum. Acne patches help dry up and prevent picking at active acne.

Ingredients to look out for: Lactic acid, niacinamide, tea tree, cica, thermal water, salicylic acid.

Hello! Picks: 1. Mama Cica Zit Away Treatment Patches from Quench

2. Hyséac Cleansing Gel from Uriage

3. Squalane + 10% Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum from Biossance

For Ageing

Ageing skin is like a clock. While you can’t reverse the damage, you can slow it down. To address the loss of collagen and elasticity, include ingredients that boost collagen and keep your skin deeply hydrated.

Ingredients to look out for: Collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, retinol, vitamin E, almond oil.

Hello! Picks: 1. Energizing Anti Age Serum from Skeyndor

2. Hydrolyzed Collagen Booster Face Serum from Fixderma

3. Superpower - Eternal Youth Cream from BiE

For Dullness

Dullness often results from dead skin build-up or sun damage. To reverse damage and restore your glow, Vitamin C is the go-to ingredient. Using a face mask a couple of times a week further helps in exfoliating dead skin and reviving your radiant complexion.

Ingredients to look out for: Vitamin C, glycolic acid, ferulic acid, niacinamide, turmeric.

Hello! Picks: 1. Suvarna Haldi Chandan Face Pack from Kama Ayurveda

2. Kaya Vitamin C Glow Infinity Serum from Kaya

3. Mini Brightening Serum from Dr. Barbara Sturm

For Dryness

To treat dry and dehydrated skin, opt for light hydrating products that penetrate the deepest layers. Hydrating emulsions, gentle cleansers and water-based creams effectively nourish and repair the skin’s barrier. ‘Slugging’ with petroleum jelly is a great hack to lock in moisture.

Ingredients to look out for: Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, squalane, vitamin E, petroleum jelly.

Hello! Picks: 1. Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Emulsion For Normal To Dry Skin from Laneige

2. Simple Water Boost Moisturiser Skin Quench Sleeping Cream from Simple

For Open Pores

Excessive sebum production and an improper skincare routine can result in open pores, leading to blackheads, whiteheads and breakouts. To address this, incorporate a toner, chemical exfoliants like AHA’s and BHA’s, mud masks and regular icing to help shrink enlarged pores.

Ingredients to look out for: AHA, BHA, salicylic acid, retinol, niacinamide, clay-based masks.

Hello! Picks: 1. Manjishtha Mud Mini from 82°E

2. Deep Sweep Toner from Farmacy Beauty

For Hyperpigmentation

Acne, sun exposure and melasma are common causes of hyperpigmentation. The best way to combat this concern involves using a serum that targets discoloration and ensuring constant protection from UV rays for your skin.

Ingredients to look out for: Vitamin C, kojic acid, vitamin A, azelaic acid, tranexamic acid, mandelic acid.
