When oil, dirt and dead skin cells accumulate in facial pores they can become blocked, leading to whiteheads, blackheads, acne and blemishes… the frequency of which is dependent on many factors from person to person. While most of us experience these frustrating skin problems during puberty, but some people have to combat them for life due to imbalance of kapha dosha.
The good news is that with the right organic skin treatment, you can control and prevent blemishes by balancing pH and dermal hormones of the skin, reducing oil production and keep pores clear. Here are the best recommended products for oily and acne prone skin:
