Acne-prone skin? Find out what Ayurveda says about it.
When the digestive fire (Agni) in one's body is disturbed, it leads to an imbalance of the three doshas (mostly the Pitta dosha), which in turn affects the blood and fat tissues. According to Ayurveda, this is the primary cause of acne. As a result of the toxins produced by the vitiated doshas, pimples occur on the skin's pores/srotas (microscopic channels). There are a variety of factors that can affect the severity and amount of time it takes for a person's skin to recover after such skin conditions.
A pitta-calming diet is commonly recommended as a way to cure acne's fundamental cause. Acne sufferers should steer clear of greasy, spicy, sour, and fermented foods in their diets.
Here are some more #AyurvedicSkin Tips :
- Hydrate: both your body and your skin. Drink plenty of water to help remove toxins and bacteria on the skin, reducing the potential for pore-clogging in the process.
- Healthy diet: to treat the root cause of acne, a person is often recommended a pitta-pacifying diet. Those who see frequent outbreaks of acne should avoid oily, spicy, sour and fermented foods.
- Double Cleansing: This type of skin usually requires careful management. Though the overproduction of sebum clogs your skin pores, over-washing can stimulate your oil glands into producing more oil.
- Lymph drain: Acne sufferers might consider undergoing lymphatic drainage stimulation. Regular care may significantly lessen the symptoms of a clogged lymphatic system, which in turn improves the look of the skin. Massage with a Kansa wand.😉
