Pimples Causes, Treatment And Prevention

Loading...

Pimples are hazardous. Most of us are kept in the dark regarding the rare knowledgeable Ayurvedic fact that whenever there is an imbalance in the three doshas, which are kapha, pitta, and vata, that are respectively present in our body, the formation of acne and pimples takes place. Pimples affect one’s shoulders, back, and face that are densely filled with sebaceous (oily) glands. When pitta dosha increases in the skin, the body gets heated up and pollutes the underlying tissues, which further leads to pimple eruptions. An expansion in kapha leads to overproduction of sebum, which leads to the pores being clogged. Specific types of skin bacteria may make pimples worse. Having discussed the common causes of pimples, we shall now learn about the various treatments of pimples.

PREVENTION

Pimples are usually caused by androgen hormones or genetics. In some cases, there’s no one-stop-solution to cure them. However, mentioned below are some of the methods, which can prevent their occurrence and also reduce their severity.

a) Limit the usage of makeup

Applying excessive makeup tends to clog pores. If you’re one of those ladies who can’t do without makeup at all, then refrain yourself from using heavy foundation and try using products that are fragrance-free, sheer, and non-greasy. Greasy or oily shampoos, shaving creams, body washes, and hair styling products can quite easily cause pimples. Also, remove the makeup properly before sleeping.

b) Minimize stress

Studies have revealed that when one is stressed, one’s body produces more oil-stimulating hormones. One should resort to meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, and massage to control and reduce stress levels.

c) Control sun exposure

Regular sun exposure dehydrates the skin that produces more block pores and oil. Hence, sport an oil-free sunscreen onto your face before stepping out.

d) Don’t pop pimples

This might cause critical scarring, bleeding, or skin infection and also further occurence of pimples.
