Acne is known in Ayurveda as Youvana Pidika, which approximately translates to “young boils.” Acne is no longer considered a pubertal problem. Ccne has become more common in adulthood due to a diet heavy in lipids, sugar, and salt, as well as a slow metabolism, hormone imbalances, stress, and irregular sleep-wake cycles. Our skin, according to Ayurveda, is home to a wonderful ecology of microorganisms. The opportunistic parasitism of these bacteria is caused by a shift in our sebum make-up. The good news is that there are a few basic home remedies you may use to avoid acne. Here are some common kitchen components that can aid with acne treatment.

You could try these 5 home ingredients to avoid acne:

Dhaniya (Coriander)

Dhaniya is seen as commonplace. Let me attempt to bring it back to its former splendor for you. Coriander is one of the few herbs that balances all three doshas, in addition to being tremendously yummy. It increases metabolism, regulates blood sugar levels, and regulates hormones. Crushed coriander seeds can be steeped in boiling water. Strain the tea and serve it with a squeeze of lemon and honey. Fresh coriander leaf paste, when applied to aggressive acne, aids healing by lowering redness and swelling.

Masoor (Red lentils)

Masoor dal is recommended by Ayurveda for all skin problems. Whiteheads and blackheads, which are precursors to a full-blown pimple, are treated with Masoor. It provides a rosy glow and might assist enhance skin texture. Masoor dal should be soaked overnight in raw milk or yogurt. Put it in a blender and spread it on your skin like a face mask. Prepare to be blown away!

Saunf (fennel)

Acne-prone skin can be harmed by an insulin surge triggered by white rice maida and sugar. Fennel can help you overcome your cravings. When you’re craving something sweet, turn to fennel. Fennel increases metabolism, reduces sweet cravings, and helps to balance hormones. You’ll also notice that fennel’s high fiber content keeps your bowels tidy. Clean bowels equate to clear, unclogged skin.

Kesar (saffron)

All of Kesar’s publicity is insufficient. Saffron is a fantastic treatment for acne-prone skin. In a cup of warm water, steep cinnamon bark powder and kesar. With a smidgeon of honey, this tea is delicious. It cleanses the liver and strengthens the skin’s defenses.

Acne-prone skin is worse by tea and coffee. Caffeine cravings can be satisfied by drinking warm dairy-free almond milk with a few strands of saffron.

Using Multani mitti and Chandan powder, paste a few strands of Kesar. For rapid relief, apply on active acne.

Pudina (Mint)

Pudina soothes the skin, unclogs pores, and improves digestion. By cleaning the pores, pudina leaf paste can help prevent outbreaks. Warm herbal drinks are so comforting. Adding a pinch of pudina to the mix will take the acne-fighting strategy to the next level.
