Best Ayurvedic Treatment for Acne Due To Hormonal Imbalance – Come to Parijatak

Getting to Know the Concept of Ayurveda for Acne is the prevalence of red pimples on the skin caused by infected sebaceous glands. Small sebaceous glands rest just under the skin surface. These glands create the oil (sebum) which keeps the skin lithe and smooth. Tiny pores on the skin permit the sebum to move towards the skin surface. Hairs grow through these pores too. In the teenage years, you make abundant sebum than the time when you were a child. This is because of the hormonal transformation of puberty that stimulates the sebaceous glands.

Types of Acne

The known types of acne are as follows:

  • Whiteheads: These are small blemishes on the skin characterized by whitish heads. These occur when an excess of sebum and dead skin cells together lead to clogged pores where follicles get plugged.
  • Blackheads: These are tiny black blemishes that occur when debris inside the hair follicles get oxidized.
  • Papules: These are small, red spots that are swollen but do not contain any amount of pus. These occur when the presence of bacteria lead to skin inflammation.
  • Pustules: These are inflamed acne characterized by pus and pain as well.
  • Comedones: These are basic lesions of the acne that are caused when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. These can further develop into bumps like whiteheads and blackheads.
  • Nodules: These are firm, large and inflamed bumps that are developed deep within the skin.
  • Cysts: These are large painful lesions characterized by pus.
  • Severe Nodulocystic Acne: This type is characterized by multiple cysts and nodules with painful inflammation that can further lead to deep red or purple lesions.
  • Acne Conglobata: These are the most severe forms with multiple painful and inflamed nodules connected deep within the skin.
  • Acne Mechanica: These are small lesions that occur when the skin gets exposed to excessive heat, pressure, and friction. This exposure mainly occurs by wearing gears like helmet, tight caps or any similar sort of sports gear that covers the face tightly.

Ayurvedic Concept of Acne

As per the books of Ayurveda, the occurrence of acne and pimples is due to an imbalance of Vata and Kapha doshas. It is believed that vata is a dominant element in the skin and the Kapha dosha is dominant in the medha or body fat. Medha comprises the oil or sebum secreted by the skin glands that have a sticky characteristic because of the presence of Kapha. When vata aggravates due to unhealthy dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle, it secretes excessive oil or sebum and further leaks out to block skin pores, resulting in the formation of acne.

The best Ayurvedic medicine for acne is neem. Further to that, the most common and effective ayurvedic treatment for pimples and black marks include herbal remedies like tulsi, Indian gooseberry, turmeric, lemon, triple, white gourd, and papaya.

Ayurvedic medicine for acne and pimples India at Parijatak offers various herbal formulations and decoctions to treat the acne, scars and even the causes so that the clogged skin pores can be effectively unblocked and the skin stays rejuvenating.
