Get rid of Acne with Ayurveda.

Ever wondered a small acne spot can not only lower your beauty but also your confidence level and self-esteem?

Though acne is not a severe ailment it can still carve a big shadow on your beauty.

Rather every individual who suffer from acne has one question in mind, i.e why does acne occur and why me?

Some of them most common answers we find is due to

  • Oil production
  • Dead skin cells
  • Clogged pores
  • Bacteria…blah blah blah

But, Ayurveda will give you more in depth details on why this occurs.

When the vata and pitta located in our skin and blood gets provoked due to metabolic waste products in blood, hormonal imbalances, stress, bad skin hygiene, spicy and fried food intake, irregular eating and sleeping habits, constipated bowels, they erupt out of our skin (especially on face) in the form of acne.

Here are some tips for you to prevent acne.

  • Wash you face at least thrice a day with water at room temperature.
  • Regularize the sleeping habits (10 PM- 5 AM being ideal).
  • Aim for chemical-free skin, avoid using too many creams and make-up.
  • Consult your ayurveda doctor for hormonal imbalances.
  • Eat all the locally available seasonal fruits (at least one fruit/day).
  • Avoid the food that clog your digestive system and thus clog your skin- fast foods, soft drinks, packaged foods that are full of artificial preservatives. The same old mantra! However, there is just no other master key to health.
  • Drink hot-warm water in an empty stomach, 2 hours after meals and bedtime to keep the body heat away.

There are also some external and internal remedies for acne.
