Here Psorinum will help to clear the pimples and dark skin and control the excessive oiliness of the skin. Psorinum will deep-cleanse the skin pores on the face making it oil-free, clear and glowing. High sensitivity towards cold air may be found in persons needing Psorinum. Offensive perspiration may also be a complaint.

Both these remedies are recommended for a clear skin and for removing scars caused by pimples. Silicea is mainly recommended where deep-seated acne containing pus have resulted in disfiguring scars on the face. It also works where deep pits on the face have resulted from acne.

Kali Bromatum is useful in cases where hard indurated pimples have resulted in facial scarring and discoloration. Kali Bromatum works well in clearing scars and bringing back fairness that has been lost due to disfiguring scars, to the skin.

- Natrum Mur, Lycopodium, and Phosphorus – To Clear Freckles
Freckles refer to pigmentation on the skin, usually on the face, occurring due to prolonged exposure to the sun.
