Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response

Acne is a common inflammatory disease of the Pilosebaceous follicles seen in adolescentes.

The general health should be checked, anemia and hypothyroidism.

Avoid certain foods like pies, fried foods nuts etc.

Wash the face frequently with soap. This reduces flora and removes the excessive oil.

I suggest that , Aloe vera is the best choice for acne, Aloe vera , acting as an anti - inflammatory and wound healing .

Add Turmeric powder + Neem leaf powder , make paste and apply on the face. Turmeric powder is a anti - septic and the neem leaf is a anti - bacterial agents.It can also help to reduce acne.

Dear Aditi
Such obstinate type of acne call for internal medicine and in my practice I have seen topical application gves quick relief but there is frequent recurrance. In ayurveda we use blood purifiers and recommend proper hygeine and proper diet. Anti oxidants and cheerful mood make recovery fast. You can have tab. allerin haridra khand and maha manjishtha arisht for total cure.
