Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 28-year-old woman who has been grappling with persistent facial pimples for several years. Despite trying numerous skincare products, I have not seen any improvement. I am interested in exploring this issue from an Ayurvedic perspective. I have come across the concept of doshas and suspect that my skin concerns may stem from an imbalance, particularly related to kapha. Could you guide me on rebalancing my doshas to enhance my skin health? I am eager for solutions that delve deeper than mere topical treatments. Could you shed light on how Ayurveda addresses pimples and provide specific recommendations to rejuvenate my skin?

Thank you.
