Acne and Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, there are three doshas namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha. An imbalance in any of the dosha leads to one or the other disorder. Mainly Kapha and Vata doshas are responsible for acne.

In Ayurveda, oil produced by oil glands is known as medas. Kapha dosha is dominant in meda while Vata is dominant in skin. When Vata gets aggravated then it activates the oil glands of skin to secrete more sticky oil. The excess of sebum or oil clogs the skin pore and causes acne.
