A Pimple (Yauvan pidika) is a menace in adolescents and it pop-ups soon after clearing the existing one. Pimples totally damage the skin tone, cause blemishes and permanent scars. Using chemical for acne treatment is not advisable as it starts harming the skin in a prolonged use. Ayurveda, a holistic treatment provides a precise and complete cure for acne. It eradicates the problem from the root and not superficially.

What does Ayurveda say about Acne vulgaris?

Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the three main doshas in the body. When there is an imbalance in the doshas, most of the illnesses including pimples occur.

The increased pitta dosha heats the body and infects the underlying tissues of the skin which eventually ends with pimple eruptions. Indigestion, toxin accumulation is caused due to the imbalance vata dosha. Excessive sebum production and pore-clogging happen due to the increased kapha dosha. So, treating the doshas will be the best remedy for curing pimples.

Ayurveda states that these imbalances can be managed with a healthy diet, lifestyle changes that elevate proper digestion, promote toxin elimination and increase body vitality.

Vata Acne is distinguished by dryness. Then how to balance vata? By following the below tips vata is balanced.

  • Intake of low-fat dairy products
  • Eat grains and asparagus, beets, and carrots
  • Add fats and oils in the diet that supports in smoothening digestion and nourishes the skin
  • Add bananas, avocados, and mangoes

Pitta Acne is portrayed by excess heat and redness. An imbalanced pitta affects the liver and bloodstream that results in inflammation. Balance your Pitta dosha by following the tips.

  • Skip the fermented foodstuff
  • Use coconut/olive oil
  • Eat cooling veggies such as asparagus, cucumbers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and green leafy
  • Consume sweeter fruits such as grapes, melons, and cherries
  • Take honey instead of sugar
  • Decrease the intake of tomatoes, hot peppers, carrots, beets, eggplant, onions, garlic, radishes, and spinach.

Above all, avoid oily and spicy items, eat fresh food always, do frequent face wash with mild soap, do not prick or squeeze a pimple. Though these are the basic formulae to reduce the effect of the doshas, still a proper Ayurvedic consultation only determines the best appropriate treatment for an individual.
