Acne and Pimple Treatment: Ayurveda Tips & Home Remedies

Herbal acne treatment is becoming very popular in acne treatments these days. This cannot but be connected with fact that many a times they left behind no after effect like chemically based treatment. One popular method of herbal acne treatment is through Ayurveda.

These type of herbs have been in traditional use since centuries in various parts of the world, most especially in India, that is the birthplace of the Ayurvedic form of medicine.

There are various home-based methods are used in Ayurveda acne scars treatment. Some of these home based methods of Ayurveda acne scar treatment are discussed below

The first to be considered is Meethi It is called fenugreek in the English-speaking world, it is a bitter herb. About a teaspoonful of the seed are taken and put into about 1,000 to 1,500 ml of water. The mixture of melthi seed and water is boiled thoroughly and allowed to cool to room temperature. The herbal acne treatment solution is then smeared on the areas where acne has affected the skin. This needs to be done for about 7 days.

The next herb to be considered is pudina which is known as mint in English. Their leaf is very valuable in Ayurveda acne scars treatment. Take about a dozen of mint leaves and squeezed under pressure in order to extract their juices. Add this directly to the scars for a quick and lasting healing effect.


Chandana is another herb that is very useful in Ayurveda acne scar treatment. It is called sandalwood and it is highly potent herb for treating skin-related disorders in Ayurveda. It is applied in the form of a paste. Sandalwood is kept submerged in water for a night, after which it will partially dissolve and form a paste. The paste is then rubbed on the skin where acne is present. The paste will desiccate and stiffen and after sometime it is removed by washing with cold water.


It is quite surprising that the neem tree had almost become an idol that is being worshiped in Ayurveda. This is due to its vast number of health benefits to the human bodies, especially in terms of treating skin disorders. The leaves have many benefits even possibly up to a thousand benefits and one of them is the Ayurveda acne scars treatment. The leaves are merely kept in contact with the acne scars by wetting them or with the help of a bandage to relieve the skin of them.

Acne and Pimples
The aggravation of tridosha or the three energies of the body results in the occurrence of acne, pimples and blackheads. In all pitta dosha is effected the most and it happens so due to the excessive intake of alcohol, tea, coffee, spicy, oily and fried foods.

Stress, tension, pollution and chemicals are also among the major causes that aggravates Pitta dosha and result in acne, boils, blemishes, pimples and rashes.

Home Remedies

  • A paste made from one teaspoon each of sandalwood powder and turmeric mixed with milk, is very good. A paste of nutmeg and water is also beneficial.
  • Half a cup of Aloe Vera pulp can be taken internally (Do not take internally if pregnant) or applied externally to the skin. Dosage: Twice a day.
  • Before going to bed, was the face thoroughly and then apply a paste of 1 Tsp. coriander juice mixed with a pinch of turmeric powder.
  • For pimples, apply a paste made from one teaspoon of cumin seeds. Remove after one hour.
