Acne is the result of high pitta moving under the skin and breaking out in pimples. Ayurveda recommends several natural approaches that, taken together, can eʃectively control acne. The possible pitta-provoking causes are numerous. They include emotional stress, premenstrual hormonal changes, and exposure to chemicals or too much sunlight. The problem might also be a bacterial infection. It is important to ɹnd out the cause, so it can be properly treated or, in the case of exposure to chemicals or sunlight, simply avoided.
