Are you looking for a gentle, sebum balancing face wash for acne prone skin?
In Ayurveda, Acne is referred to as Youvana pidaka. Ayurveda says that atleast 2 doshas are vitiated in youvana pidaka, sometimes all 3. Vitiation of pitta dosha increases the oiliness, and greasiness of skin. Pitta vitiation also leads to irritation in certain localised areas like the face, chest, back, etc which result in small localised eruptions. This vitiation affects both Rakta dhatu (blood) and Mamsa dhatu (muscle) and intake of improper food is one of the key causes of acne. When this improper eating persists and the acne is not treated properly, or harsh products are used or it is picked apart, it can get further infected leading to pus oozing, cystic acne.
All synthetic products used to treat acne use chemicals like Benzoyl peroxide, Triclosan, Salicylic acid, and alcohol extracts. These chemicals are known respiratory irritants and application typically results in dry skin and skin darkening especially when used by people with a darker skin type. More worryingly, many young girls with acne are now been routinely prescribed with birth control pills that alters hormonal balance in the body to simply control the spread of acne., These practices are harmful and dangerous to the body and do not guarantee a relief in acne.
The Krya Anti acne face wash – gentle, natural, balancing face wash for acne prone skin (aggravated pitta + kapha)
Krya follows the Ayurvedic rule of opposites when treating acne which is a Pitta prone disorder. Pitta is strong, intense, sharp and rapid. We formulate our acne products to be cool, gentle, mild and soft on skin..
The Krya Anti acne Face wash is made from 25 organic lentils and grains and whole Ayurvedic herbs. Each ingredient is specially chosen and carefully processed in order to help balance sebum production skin and sooth and cool and balance aggravated Pitta dosha.
The product is extremely gentle and soothing on skin, yet cleanses skin deeply and thoroughly. The Krya anti acne skin products use our special patent-pending production process and herbs recommended by Ayurveda to work on acne prone skin. With regular use there is a shrinking in pimples, reduction in appearance and improvement in skin clarity and health without resorting to skin irritating chemicals or dangerous drugs .
Further care for acne prone skin (highly pitta + kapha aggravated) :
We recommend that acne prone skin which has aggravated Pitta and Kapha aggravation be best cared for using both the Krya Anti acne face wash and the Krya anti acne face Lepa (mask). In cases of back acne, and acne eruptions across the body, we recommend the use of the Krya Classic body wash to help control acne, cleanse and unclog skin and release aggravated Pitta from all over the body.
Once the acne has been brought under control (can take upto 6 months in cases of very pronounced cystic acne), after examining the skin, we suggest adding the Krya Classic Facial Oil and the Vyoma Skin Serum to the skin routine. This helps nourish skin in a balanced manner, lightens blemishes and improves skin texture further.
Acne is strongly correlated with eating Pitta aggravating and toxin producing food. Please read the Krya blog for suggestions on a good diet to follow for Acne and good health giving practices that can help balance your doshas. Regular Dinacharya practices like Eating on time, doing a regular abhyanga and regular hair oiling also help control aggravation of Pitta and other Doshas in the system.

p.s: This system is designed for full on adult acne. If your concern is simply to do with skin oiliness, blackheads and whiteheads, do consider using the Krya Classic Face wash instead.
