Common Skin Problems Faced By Indians

Indian skin is full of ethnicity and diversity. We have got a spectrum full of colours and textures full of variations. Apart from cultural differences, this is also possible due to different or harsh external environmental conditions like humidity, dryness, etc. Today, we take a quick look at the most common skin issues faced by Indians and what are the easiest ways to treat them!

Skin Problems Found Commonly In India As Follows-

Acne –

One of the most common causes found among majority of people is acne. This can be caused due to different food patterns, hot and humid weather, hormonal imbalance, excess production of sebum, genetics etc. About 80% of the world’s population is affected by adult acne between the onset of puberty and 30 years of age.

Easy Remedies –

Some of the ways of getting rid of your acne include incorporating more greens into your diet, stop touching your face frequently, dab away excess oil from time to time using a quality tissue or face wipe, wash your face twice daily with a gentle exfoliating cleanser, use a product with salicylic acid in it.

You can also try simple home remedies like applying aloe vera on acne, spot treatment with tea tree oil, take zinc supplements, get a hot compress among many others.


Indian skin is thicker as compared to other countries, and they are more prone to get tanned rather than sun burnt. The skin tone is defined by the amount of melanin, a natural pigment present in the body. Sometimes, overproduction of melanin in certain parts of your face or body can lead to hyperpigmentation.


Some other external causes for hyperpigmentation include pollution, damage from UV rays, acne and other skin allergies.


Easy Remedies –

Exfoliate your skin consistently to remove excess dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, apply sunscreen diligently on your face, neck and hands every day, look for potent ingredients in your skincare products like salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, vitamin c, niacinamide. These ingredients work effectively to reduce acne scars and hyperpigmentation


Dull and Dry Skin

Dry skin makes the skin look dull and wrinkled. A dry skin fails to reflect light like a healthy skin does. Dry skin can be caused by constant exposure to harmful sun rays, pollution and dehydration.

Easy Remedies

Use minimal makeup, exfoliate your face daily to remove dead skin cells, quit smoking and drinking, drink 8 glasses of water every day, use skin serums like vitamin c, ferulic acid, niacinamide to boost hydration and diminish signs of aging.

Premature Ageing-

Constant exposure to sun’s harmful UV rays and aggravating levels of pollution lead to premature ageing of the skin by increasing fine lines and wrinkles around eyes and chin.

Easy Remedies –

Apply sunscreen consistently even when you are indoors. Along with the sunscreen, maintain a religious CTM routine and include potent serums like retinol to reverse ageing.
