In Ayurveda, acne is referred to as ‘Yauvan Pidika. Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders which are densely filled with sebaceous glands.. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.
When there is an imbalance in the three doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha) in your body, pimples and acne occur. They affect the face, back,
Therefore, the best way to treat pimples is to follow a good diet and exercise, along with utilizing Ayurveda formulations.
Acne is said to be an aggravation of pitta dosha, which acts under the skin and leads to heated toxins, further breaking out as acne. To keep acne at bay, one should adopt a pitta-pacifying diet. Those who see frequent outbreaks of acne, should avoid spicy and fermented foods. Heavily fried and sour foods should are also best avoided.
When pitta dosha increases in the skin, the body heats up and contaminates the underlying tissues – this leads to pimple eruptions. Imbalance of vata causes indigestion and the accumulation of toxins. An increase in kapha leads to over-production of sebum, and this clogs the pores. All of these lead to pimples, which is why you need to treat them from within.
