Looking for a face wash for your teenager who is experiencing hormonal acne?
Teens experience upheavals in dosha balance due to the hormonal changes occurring in their body. This leads to aggravated pitta and kapha dosha which trigger the easy eruption of pus-filled cystic acne.
Many children find these changes difficult to deal with and they also affect their sense of self-worth. So they fall prey to common skincare hacks and products found on the internet.
Such skincare advice and products often don’t work. Worse still they could over-dry the top layers of skin and cause skin flakiness and dryness. Even if they do work, the results are only temporary as they do not address the root of the issue which is aggravated pitta and kapha.
