Cure Pimple & Acne with Ayurvedic Treatment

Being the leading Ayurvedic hospital in Trivandrum, we provide the best Ayurvedic treatment for pimples and acne that occurs when there are excess amounts of oil produced by the sebaceous glands and which blocks the hair follicles giving rise to eruptions on the skin. This is most commonly found in the skin of adolescents. In Ayurveda, this condition is therefore referred to as Yauvanpidika. This condition most commonly occurs on the facial skin and that of the neck, shoulders and upper back. This is because of the dense presence of sebaceous glands in these parts. Acne can be present as blackheads, whiteheads, nodules or pimples.

Causes of Pimple

According to Ayurveda, pimples are caused when the all the three doshas are impaired with the pitta element being predominantly out of balance. This imbalance produces toxins in the blood (rakta) and the tissues (meda dhatus). Pimples are aggravated by the consumption of spicy and oily foods.

As the main cause for the formation of pimples/acne is the excess of the pitta element in the body, its action is to accumulate heat in the body. These toxins thus generated accumulate deep into the nutrient plasma (rasa), muscles (mamsa), blood (rakta), and lymph (lasika). The contamination of these deep tissues leads to the formation of acne/pimples. As the cause lies deep down in the tissues, any topical cream applied on pimples does not cure the cause.

Ayurveda treatment for pimples is therefore directed towards removing the root cause and is achieved through dietary changes, lifestyle changes and herbal combinations.
