Ayurvedic Remedies for Breakouts and Blemishes on the Skin

Ayurvedic Remedies for Breakouts and Blemishes on the Skin

“Behold a person's eyes;
you will find the mirror to their soul.
Behold a person’s skin,
and it reflects the well-being of their whole.”

Tracing the roots of Ayurveda reveals an age-old wisdom of healing that promotes holistic wellness and cures diseases by treating the underlying causes instead of the surface-level symptoms.
Moreover, ingredients play a vital role in every Ayurvedic process. Their proper proportion and blend perfectly solve skin, hair, and wellness-related issues. Let’s comprehend how these Ayurvedic principles apply to healing regular skin problems.

Defining Acne and Pigmentation

A skin condition known as acne varies in intensity and can result from various factors such as hormonal changes, lack of sleep, PCOs, and stress, among other reasons. These breakouts, often appearing on the face, neck, shoulders, and back, can leave scars and significantly affect one's confidence, leading to feelings of self-consciousness and lower self-esteem levels. This pimple-causing condition appears on the skin in various forms, including blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.

Another common condition of the skin is pigmentation, caused due to changes in levels of Melanin, a pigment responsible for regulating skin color. Increased levels of this can result in Hyperpigmentation or the darkening of the skin.

Ayurvedic Insights

As identified by Ayurveda, three doshas are the causal factors of acne-prone skin and pigmentation.

1. Pitta Dosha 
(Heat Energy)

People with an imbalance in Pitta dosha may have redness and inflammation due to oily skin. Breakouts in this dosha are mainly on the nose and cheeks. These are aggravated by increased stress levels, spicy food, or anything that creates heat in the skin.

Pitta dosha is also associated with hyperpigmentation; an increase in this causes the accumulation of toxins and heat in the body, resulting in skin discoloration.

2. Kapha Dosha
(Earth & Water Energy)

An imbalance in Kapha dosha causes improper digestion, and the skin appears oily, with breakouts on the upper cheeks and forehead. An inactive lifestyle and consumption of bakery, dairy, and sweet food items may worsen the acne.
Kapha dosha is also the causal factor of hyperpigmentation, wherein slow metabolism leads to the accumulation of toxins in the skin.

3. Vata Dosha
(Wind Energy)

Those with an imbalance in Vata dosha have dry skin with blackheads, often causing breakouts in the lower parts of the face. Excessive consumption of cold food, irregular sleep, and poor eating patterns can intensify this skin condition.

Healing from Within

While indulging in the timeless essence of Ayurveda, holistic well-being, dietary habits, lifestyle modifications, and Ashpveda’s Ayurvedic products are essential.

Dietary Practices

Individuals must be careful with their food consumption patterns; diet monitoring can help identify potential intolerances that may cause indigestion. It is essential to include and exclude certain foods from the diet; a careful understanding of the nutritional values can help create a balanced meal. Meanwhile, dietary schedules must be regularized with adequate hydration. Moreover, Ayurveda also promotes the inclusion of six tastes, namely sweet, salty, bitter, sour, astringent, and spicy, in the diet to enhance the balance of the doshas.

Changes in Lifestyle

Lifestyle patterns are the root cause of most contemporary health issues, so modifications to these are vital for a complete cure. The body's self-healing process occurs during sleep; therefore, regulating sleep patterns is essential. Additionally, stress management is to be practiced. Ayurvedic methods such as yoga, meditation, and pranayama are recommended. Further, stepping outdoors creates a sense of serenity and a feeling of oneness with nature. Regular exercise is also recommended.

Altogether, Ayurveda, with its holistic approach to wellness, is beneficial in more ways than one. It heals not just the outer whole; its effects seep deeper into the soul.
