AYURVEDA: Anti Acne
Acne is a common skin disease that affects more than 85% of the population at some point in their lives. Acne is more common in men than women during adolescence, and more common in women than men during adulthood. Acne is a condition of the skin. It occurs when the hair follicles in the skin become plugged by the naturally occurring sebum and dirt. Since these hair follicles are usually in higher numbers on your face, neck, chest and back, most people experience Acne in these areas.
AYURVEDA says that Acne is an imbalance of all three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, with the main cause being the aggravation of the Pita Dosha. It is a representation of the disturbances in the internal systems/environment of the body. Pitta is made up of a combination of Fire & Water, hence the heat, or redness, of the skin. Since a Pitta imbalance is deep in the physiology, creams and topical treatments just mask the symptoms of Acne.
Ayurveda tells, we need to maintain the cleanliness of Internal environment along with the External environment. According to Ayurveda, skin works like an index of the internal systems of the body so it is always important to maintain and manage the internal system of the body.
Ayurveda recommends a Pitta Diet & Lifestyle routine to tackle the disease at the root cause. Because the skin is mostly controlled and managed by Pitta Dosha, which work in deep collaboration with the blood and these is directly related to the liver. So it makes sense that the disturbances in the liver are more prone in case of the Pitta dominance. Are you a Pitta Dosha? – Check your body Type to be sure about your primary DOSHA.
