8 Amazing Ayurvedic Ingredients to Fight Off Acne

Hi all,

In this post, I will discuss some amazing ayurvedic ingredients that can help you to deal with acne and the marks that it leaves. Chemicals can be too harsh for your skin at times. The ayurvedic ingredients are natural and do not disturb the skin at all. They keep the skin free of acne and also help to restore the glow. You can take them orally or apply them topically on the skin.

1. Ashwagandha

We often suffer from acne due to hormonal imbalance or stress. This Ayurvedic herb helps to deal with both the issues. It maintains the hormonal balance in our body and relieves the stress. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Unlike many anti-acne treatments, this one does not make the skin dry and keeps it healthy and moisturized. It can be taken orally or used topically.

2. Neem

This antibacterial, blood purifier works well to combat acne when you apply it on skin as well as when you drink the juice extracted from the leaves. It detoxifies and purifies the blood and prevents breakout. It also has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic properties that make it great for topical application. You can make a paste of neem leaves and apply it directly on the skin. You can also boil the leaves in water till the water goes green and use it as a toner (and drink it as well).

3. Hartaki

This one is even more potent than the sandalwood. You have to rub the hartaki with water on a surface to get the extract from its skin. It dries the acne within hours without leaving a scar. But, make sure to apply it on the acne only. Otherwise, it makes the skin dark and can also burn it.

4. Moringa

This lesser known herb takes care of a lot of issues that are related to acne-prone skin. It makes the skin firm and toned, reduces the open pores size, clears the acne and gives the skin a very beautiful glow. It detoxifies and hydrates the skin, delivering a radiating glow. It is available in powder forms and you can use it as a pack, mixed with rose water.

5. Shatavari

This herb is great to maintain the hormonal imbalances and breakouts caused by it. Many women suffer from breakouts due to PMS or PCOS. Oral intake of Shatavari root powder soothes these problems and keeps your skin free of acne.

6. Sandalwood Paste

If you want to spot treat the pimples, this one is a great solution. It dries the pimple without leaving any scar. This also prevents excess sebum accumulation. If you have severely oily and acne prone skin, you can regularly apply sandalwood pack and wash it off to keep away the excess oil. However applying the paste all over the face and leaving it overnight is not a great idea as it can make the skin very dry

7. Kutki

This herb purifies the blood and detoxifies the liver. Liver problem is one of the primary reasons behind breakouts. This herb helps you to combat such pimples. It also cools and cleanses the skin, soothing down your red, inflamed acne.

8. Turmeric

Turmeric roots and turmeric powder

Turmeric intake purifies the blood, keeps your digestive system clean and prevents breakouts. It has amazing antibacterial properties that prevent the acnes from developing the puss. It cleanses the pores, prevents the bacterial accumulation and also clears away the scars.

You can get these ingredients in local Ayurvedic stores. However, it is better to consult a Ayurvedic practioner and discuss your conditions (if you are pregnant or if you are lactating beforehand.)
