Tired Of Skin Problems & Looking For A New Skincare Routine? Read This!

Are you tired of battling skin problems now and then and looking for the best solutions out there? Or is the concept of a skincare routine troubling you, and looking for some new products to try? Luckily, you're at the right place, as we know how to deal with these stated concerns and a lot more.

Thus, from discussing the common skin problems women in Pakistan face to combating them and learning an effective skincare routine within, this blog has covered it all! That said, let's get started.

Common Skin Problems in Pakistan & Their Causes

Though women from all over the world can relate to the stress of never-ending skin problems, Pakistan's a bit different. From different lifestyle choices to genetics, deficiencies, skin types, and even geographical location, there are a lot of culprits. Additionally, these factors add to the stress, which causes more problems.

So, how do we treat this issue? For starters, let's list those common problems and their causes;


1. Acne

Acne is a common facial skin condition causing pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes cysts or nodules. It happens when hair follicles get blocked with oil and dead skin cells, which leads to inflammation.


Acne can be caused by multiple factors, including hormonal changes, excess oil production, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. Genetics, diet, and lifestyle can also play a role.

2. Pigmentation & Dark Spots

Pigmentation and dark spots are another rising skin concern in Pakistan. It further includes conditions like hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) or hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin).


Exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays is a primary cause of dark spots. Hormonal changes, such as pregnancy or certain medications, can also lead to hyperpigmentation.

3. Dryness

Dryness is also a dominant skin issue. Even though many females commonly experience oily skin, this concern becomes common, particularly when transitioning between seasons. Further, insufficient moisture levels often lead to dry, flaky, and uncomfortably tight facial skin.


The causes of dryness can be attributed to various factors, including nutritional deficiencies and dehydration, which worsen the problem. These factors further contribute to the challenge of managing dry skin in Pakistan. 

4. Sun Damage/Sunburn

Undoubtedly, Pakistan's climate is often hot and humid. Thus, direct exposure to sun rays often results in sun damage or sunburn, which is another common skin problem. This problem further leads to issues like uneven skin tone, redness, and premature ageing.


The ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or artificial sources affect the skin and cause it to become sore, red, and warm. Further, the exposure deprives the minerals from the skin and makes it tender, flaky, and even itchy.

5. Dullness

Similar to sun damage, pigmentation, and dark spots, dullness is another major skin problem women in Pakistan face. Since the country is prone to having dry and hot temperatures, direct exposure to sunlight causes dead skin cells to build up on the surface.


Dullness can be caused by various factors, including dehydration, poor diet, lack of exfoliation, and environmental factors like pollution.

Skin Types & Their Contribute to These Problems

Though these common skin problems can become anyone's walking nightmare, it's also necessary to know the involvement of specific skin types. And how does that happen? Let's discuss;

  • Oily Skin

This type of skin is quite common among women in Pakistan. Though several factors contribute to the type, the country's hot and humid climate often causes excessive oil and bacteria to form on the surface.

  • Dry Skin

Individuals with this skin are more prone to dryness than others. The climate in Pakistan, with hot and dry seasons, can cause this issue. Further, nutritional deficiencies and dehydration can worsen dryness.

  • Sensitive Skin

This skin type is more susceptible to contact dermatitis as it reacts to irritants and allergens. In a country like Pakistan, where there can be exposure to various environmental factors, sensitive skin gets inflamed often.

  • Combination Skin

This is another common skin in Pakistan, experiencing oiliness and dryness at the same time. People with this skin have an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and drier or normal skin on the cheeks and other areas. Further, analysing the common problems, such skin often experiences acne breakouts and dryness depending on the weather changes.

An Effective Skincare Routine & Products to Try

Now that we're done highlighting common skin problems and how several skin types can get affected in Pakistan, it's time to reveal an effective skincare routine to battle such problems. And for the best results, we'll be suggesting the products you can try alongside;

  • Cleansing & Moisturizing

Your skin loves a regular cleansing, just like your hands do before eating anything. Thus, cleanse your face twice a day (morning and night) with gentle micellar water. Other than that, apply moisturiser and stay hydrated for the best results.

  • Toning

The pH balance of your skin matters a lot, and a slight disturbance can cause problems. So, opt for a hydrating and pH-balancing toner to prepare your skin. Doing this will allow other products to work on your skin without causing allergic reactions.

  • Sun Protection

As discussed, Pakistan's hot climate and harsh sunrays can affect anyone, so make sure you're applying SPF protection to avoid direct exposure. For the best results, keep reapplying it every 2 hours. Also, your sunscreen should have SPF 30, at least.

  • Exfoliating

Though cleansing and moisturising is a daily mantra, exfoliating is required once a week. It helps remove the build-up of dead cells and bacteria, leaving a clean and refreshing surface you'll love! Since finding an effective exfoliator is another stress, you can try the hydrating night cream with proven results.

The Takeaway

While the suggested skincare routine and products will help you, it's also essential to stay consistent and let the changes work their charm. Further, this routine is applicable for all seasons, so no worries about climate or weather changes, either!
