If your beautiful face is covered with dark pimples, acne, dark spots, and wrinkles, then your face will look dull and will affect your total appearance. Many people who face these problems often visit beauty parlors and spend huge amount of money to have their beautiful skin back. Therefore, not only money, you also end up spending lot of unnecessary time for it.

Instead, how about trying Ayurveda next time? Not many believe in Ayurveda. However, it can bring a wonderful change to your skin and your life. According to Ayurveda, there are three types of doshas called the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. If your body type is vata, then your skin will be rough, dry, cold, and thin with fine pores; if your body type is pitta, then your skin will be fair and delicate with freckles, acne, and moles.

This type of skin is prone to burns. In case of kapha, your skin will be smooth, moist, oily, and thick with large pores. Based on the skin type you are having, Ayurvedic remedies can help you solve all your skin problems.

This herb is an anti-inflammatory.

Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera is used from ancient times. This herb is widely used for several purposes. Aloe Vera gel, which is taken freshly from the plant, is applied on the face. This herb helps to get rid of wrinkles and other signs of aging. It also moisturizes and gives soothing effect for the skin.

Lemon and Almond: Lemon has citric and alpha hydroxyl acid that help to lighten the dark spots on the skin.
