Blemishes And Pigmentation: What’s The Difference & How To Treat It

Understand how blemishes and pigmentation affect your skin.

When it comes to skincare, terms like blemishes and pigmentation are often used interchangeably. However, they are not the same. And understanding the difference between the two is crucial for effective treatment. Let’s delve deeper into what sets them apart and how natural ingredients can play a pivotal role in skincare. 

What are Blemishes?

Blemishes are any type of spot, discoloration, or imperfection on the skin. They are caused by various factors, including acne, blackheads, whiteheads and even scars from healed wounds. Blemishes can affect people of all ages and skin types and are often temporary but can sometimes lead to more permanent marks.

How Do Blemishes Occur?

  • Acne: Pimples, cysts and pustules caused by clogged pores.
  • Blackheads and Whiteheads: Blocked pores with either open (blackheads) or closed (whiteheads) tops.
  • Scars: Left behind by acne, injuries or other skin conditions.

Treating Blemishes with Ayurveda

  • Neem: Known for its antibacterial properties, neem helps reduce acne and prevent future breakouts. Regular usage of the Radiant Kashmiri Saffron & Neem Face Wash can soothe inflammation and clear blemishes.

  • Turmeric: This golden spice is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. A turmeric mask can help reduce acne and lighten scars. Another ritual to add to your skin care is the Nayaab Serum face massage, which not only maintains an even skin tone but also adds radiance to your skin. 

  • Sandalwood: Sandalwood has cooling properties, which help reduce inflammation and redness associated with blemishes. Daily showering with our Sandalwood & Turmeric Soap promotes reduction of blemishes, deep moisturization and clearer, glowing skin. 

What is Pigmentation?

Pigmentation refers to the colouring of your skin. And melanin is responsible for skin colour. So when your skin produces more melanin than necessary, it can create dark patches or spots. This condition is known as hyperpigmentation. Unlike blemishes, pigmentation issues can be more challenging to treat and may require consistent care over a longer period of time.

Why Does Pigmentation Occur?

  • Sun Exposure: UV rays stimulate melanin production.
  • Hormonal Changes: Conditions like melasma often occur during pregnancy or with the use of certain medications.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Dark spots resulting from an injury or inflammation like acne, for example.

Treating Pigmentation with Ayurveda

  • Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is known to treat dark spots and soothe the skin. Ashpveda’s Skin Perfect Sunscreen Day Cream SPF 25 not only reduces hyperpigmentation but also treats skin damage. It contains aloe vera, which helps with skin repair, as well as Yashad Bhasma, which protects your skin from further damage. It also regulates collagen production, which preserves your youthful skin. 

  • Licorice: Skin Perfect Sunscreen Day Cream SPF 25 serves multiple uses. It contains licorice extract, which inhibits the production of melanin, thus reducing the occurrence of dark spots.

Ashpveda’s use of natural Ayurvedic ingredients not only treat the symptoms but also address the root causes, promoting overall skin health. By incorporating these holistic practices into your skincare routine, you can achieve a clearer, more even complexion naturally and with ease.
