Brief Answer: need clarifications Detailed Answer: Dear S Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and following points need clarifications for Ayurveda Dietary Regime, Lifestyle management and Medicines. 1.Your Nutritional status [diet] -high carbohydrate diet? 2. Have you checked with your Physician/Gynecologist regarding any Hormonal Disturbance (Thyroid/Hemoglobin) or Investigations (ultrasound)? 3. Any use of Personal Kit? [ soaps, cleaner, creams] 4. Any mental stress and/or Addiction? 5. Any history of sleepless nights, too much exposure to sun OR aggressive or temperamental behavior?? 6. irregular intestinal movements or digestive tract problem (constipation) ?? [Acne is believed to have a very close relation to the stomach] 7. Is your Skin: Normal-Oily-Dry?? 8. Are there any blackheads on face? 9. Any associated itching/inflammation with pimples? PS. In the mean time just wash your face with Besan and XXXXXXX warm water (best natural bleaching agent),removing excess sebum and dead skin cells, likewise Neem,acts as a deep cleanser. Start incorporating following guidelines: i. Use of fresh vegetables and fruits, stay hydrated (drink 10-15 glasses of water/ day) ii. Avoid: Sugar (in any form), caffeine,cheese, oily-spicy-dry-fried food, chocolates,cakes,iodized salt,soft drinks. iii. Avoid exposure of the skin to severe climatic conditions. iv. Friction makes PIMPLES more likely to erupt, so do not over-scrub or touch the affected area whenever possible. PS: because Skin & Nervous system has a common Embrylogical origin (thus acting as an initiating or aggravating factor), thus treatment is directed as "Psychosomatic Treatment" It is requested from your side to revert back with above concerns so that guidelines for management (both preventive and curative) can be initiated.
