Ayurvedic view of Acne / Acne Treatment:

Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine in India. Ayurveda originated in India thousands of years ago. The most known ancient literacy work known as the “Vedas” gives the historical evidence of wisdom of Ayurveda. Ayurveda explains hundred of diseases along with their causes, symptoms and remedies on lines of Dosha Theory. Ayurveda cited lifestyle adjustments for each disease, which plays an important role in curing the diseases.

Ayurveda works on the “Theory of Tridosha.” According to which, the three doshas or energetic forces in the form of tissues, control all activities of the body. The three doshas are:

Vata ( “Vayu” in Hindi, “Wind” in English)
Pitta (Fire)
Kapha (provides the lubrication in the body egmucous lining of the stomach)

In ayurvedic terminology we call acne as “Youvana Pitikas”, meaning breakouts of youth. Ayurveda has also explained causes and treatments of acne.

Cause of Acne

According to ayurveda there are two main doshas (causes) responsible for acne and pimples:

Rakta dhatu (blood)

Unhealthy diet and lifestyles defect Vata, which in turn affects two doshas, Kapha and Pitta, to get provoked. Motivated Pitta affects Rakta dhatu or blood.

The defective blood causes excess secretion of oil from sebaceous glands. Kapha which already has oily property is forced to impart the stickiness to the blood. As a result thick sebaceous blocks are formed in skin pores and hair follicles which in turn results in acne.

Healthy and clean skin is the first line of defense against any infection. Ayurveda has suggested many acne skin treatments to protect skin from pimples, acne, dark circles, wrinkles and acne scars and to make the skin amazingly smooth and healthy.
