What is Acne?
Acne is a broad term used to describe a variety of skin conditions in which the pores get clogged with dead skin and/or Sebum (oil that lubricates skin and hair). Clogged Pores are susceptible to infection causing a whitehead, blackhead, pimple or Cyst.
The most common form of acne, Acne Vulgaris, found mostly in teenagers, usually shows up on the face, neck, shoulders, upper back, and chest.
Severe acne can cause scars. Overheating, wearing synthetic fibers that don't breath, and wearing heavy make-up can cause your skin to overheat and aggravate "Pitta Dosha". There are several ways to balance Pitta. We recommend you take the FREE Ayurveda Dosha Quiz to learn about your body type, where the imbalance might be hiding, and how to effectively address it. This approach addresses the root cause of acne, rather than trying to treat just the immediate symptom. Use Ayurveda botanicals to find fast acting relief, but also address the long term imbalance.
