AYURVEDIC TREATMENT for ACNE
Acne typically appears on face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. These areas of skin have the most oil (sebaceous) glands. Acne occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells.Hair follicles are connected to oil glands. These glands secrete an oily substance (sebum) to lubricate your hair and skin. Sebum normally travels along the hair shafts and through the openings of the hair follicles onto the surface of your skin.


When there is an excess amount of production of sebum and dead skin cells, the two can build up in the hair follicles and form a soft plug, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. If the clogged pore becomes infected with bacteria, inflammation results. hey manifest as blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, greasy skin, and sometimes even scarring.
