Ayurveda believes that all ills result from an imbalance. When it comes to acne, it can be your skin or your body, or both. The recurrence of acne in the same place can give you important clues about the imbalance of your Dosha or where you might have toxins. Here are some tips:
The types of acne often correspond to your Dosha.Here’s how to determine which one you are.
Milia, blackheads and whiteheads are the Vata acne that most often appears around the nose, upper cheeks and near the eyes. It is often caused by Stress and dehydration, and the best remedy is to drink plenty of water and regularly participate in Yoga and meditation to relieve anxiety.
Try: drink lots and lots of liquid and coconut juice and eat avocados, sweet fruits, cherries and oranges.
Avoid: dried fruits, apples, melons, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, beef and peas (they tend to pieces the Vata).
Pitta acne is the most common-angry red bosses are often found on the players and sometimes on the forehead. This acne is caused by a thermal imbalance, so make sure you eat a lot of naturally sweet and fresher foods (such as fruits) and avoid spicy foods.
Try: Aloe Vera juice with a pinch of turmeric in the morning and tea made from cumin seeds, coriander and fennel. Eat sprouts, green salads, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, mangoes and pears.
Avoid: tomatoes, garlic, sour fruits, bananas, peanuts and spicy foods.
Deep cystic eruptions in the T-Zone are common in the Kapha-Dosha. This type of acne is usually painful and full of pus, but it can be prevented by waking up earlier and drinking hot and detoxifying drinks such as ginger tea.
Try: hot drinks – even the water should not be colder than room temperature – and detoxifying teas such as ginger tea or hot water with honey several times a day. Eat dried fruits, pomegranate, cranberries and basmati rice.
Avoid: coconuts, dates, pineapples and dairy products.
Rashes can be the result of toxins in a specific part of the body.
Your forehead refers to the nervous system and the digestive system, which means that Stress and internal Stagnation are likely to cause breakouts here. Reduce the total of processed foods and cereals in your diet and participate in stock degradation activities. Dandruff can also be the cause of rashes on your forehead. Treat your scalp with hair oil and/or lemon juice for 10 to 15 minutes once a week to reduce flaking.
Hormonal imbalances and stress will be felt here, which means that you are more likely to go there during your menstrual cycle. Reduce Stress as much as possible, get enough sleep and exercise helps to heal blemishes in this Kapha-dominated area
Cheek and nose
The spots here indicate a poor metabolism and a low absorption of nutrients such as folate and iron, an internal increase or an artistic impression problem. Increase the total of essential fatty acids in your diet (avocado, flaxseed, olive oil) and avoid alcohol, coffee and spicy foods. Changing your ear cover and washing your bedding frequently can also help prevent rashes in players, as bacteria and sweat accumulate on your ear cover in particular. Therefore, change them regularly or place a clean towel over your ear every night.
If you suddenly hit your chest, back or neck, it may be because you have recently changed your determination to wash. Sometimes it is also the result of an Allergy to the fabric of your bra or because you wear it too tight.
In addition, Ayurveda recommends for all types Of acne, which is suitable:
Add iron and a powerful anti-inflammatory like turmeric to your diet. Aloe Vera and honey can be other additives – both when consumed and applied topically.
Practice a daily detox like cleaning your tongue, try a metabolic detox like starting the morning with a cup of hot water and practice oil extraction.
Add Yoga that facilitates both blood circulation and detoxification —a powerful acne actioner. Sun salutations and breathing meditations can be of great help in preventing and healing imperfections.
Try antibacterial and anti-inflammatory topicals that do not affect the skin: Neem, tea tree and cloves are some of our favorites.
Most often, acne is the result of an external cause that affects it. So always make sure you listen to your body to prevent stubborn imperfections. Sometimes it’s hard to remember to take care of yourself in such a fast-paced world, but your mental health (and your skin!) you will thank for it in the long run.
