      Hi Deepti, you can try Aroma Magic Beauty Pack, it gives an instant glow to the skin that stays for 1-2 days. For open pores, you should start using the Vichy Normaderm Chrono Active night cream – it helps a lot in improving the texture of acne prone skin with open pores. Is it the same one you are using right now? If your skin get oily fast, you need to use a good setting powder which will control oil for at least 3 hours. I would recommend Chambor Silver shadow compact or if you have a roomier budget, you should go for MAC Blot powder. Apply a little bit of blush in a shade that suits your skin to add a bit of color to your face so that it doesn’t look too dull. You can also start using the Lakme 4 week Intense whitening capsule treatment, it gives radiance to the skin over the course of 4 weeks.

    Ankita please help me too to choose the correct compact powder for my oily skin. Let me tell u my story I bought the body shop’s one i liked it as it stays on my face for a long period but donno why it makes me look slight reddish, its not like that that i had chosen the wrong one or maybe i had but i was having only 3 choices 1 2 or 3, 1 was very light and 3 was very dark so i picked the 2 one, result reddish complexion, then i bought the maxfactor’s compact the colour suits me but as m having oily skin it disappears within a very short tym. So sadly my search for a suitable and affordable compact powder is still on…..please suggest me a good one with affordable price…..

      Hi Dipti, in that case you need to wear an oil control lotion. Which particular compact did she use? And which parlour was it?

      Yes, Chambor one works on Combination skin too. If your cheeks feel too dry, just apply the powder on the oily areas like the T-zone.
