Kasthuri Manjal for Pimples

Some facts about pimples:

Pimple, otherwise known as acne is a skin rash, common among adolescents. Adolescents give a lot of importance to body image, and it is seen that development of pimples on the face lowers their self-esteem. It is embarrassing to face people and mingle with the society if one is not confident about appearances. Pimples can appear on the face, chest and back, but it is the ones appearing on the face that bother most people.

Pimples mostly are the result of inflammation of the hair follicles and hormonal factors and can lead to the formation of dark spots if manipulated. When a pimple is touched, squeezed or pinched, there is chance of the resident micro-organisms on the hand getting transferred to the lesion and thereby infecting the pimple. Resident organisms are plenty under the finger nails, inside hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands. The microorganisms from beneath the surface layers of skin are brought to the surface with sweat and secretions of sebaceous glands. Hence, it is very important not to touch any lesion on the face with bare hands especially without hand washing. Infected pimples, when heal can leave dark spots on the skin.

Kasthuri Manjal for Pimples

Even though, the development of pimples is not directly related to lack of hygiene, a daily bath including hair wash and short finger nails help to some extent. The area affected should be washed twice daily with soap and water to reduce the oil content.

The following mixture of Kasturimanjal powder (a form of turmeric), redsandalwood powder and green gram powder mixed in milk or cream of milk will help in reducing the occurrence of pimples and dark spots.

¼ teaspoon of Kasturi manjal powder (commercially available in many parts of India especially Kerala)

¼ teaspoon of Redsandalwood powder (best quality product available from Mysore, Karnataka)

Applying this mixture regularly gives a natural glow to the skin and reduces pigmentation. This gives a bleaching effect and evens out the skin colour and tone. After washing the mixture the skin will be very soft and supple to touch. Do not expect a miracle. If applied regularly, your skin will definitely change for better.

Dear Shri, I can palpate your anxiety. If you are a teenager it is common to have pimples. don't worry. We can only control them. The above mentioned formula will help in reducing pimples. This is from my experience.

Or you can try out a mixture of besan, milk and lemon juice also

If you have severe problem, please consult a doctor.

Take care.

Thank you, Plinka, I know that amla and shikakai are good for hair. Not heard of using sandalwood for hair. Sandalwood again is good for skin. You can aplly it mixing with milk or rose water.

Good tips!I may try it, as it also gives a natural glow. There's an Indian store near my place, I don't know if they have green gram but I can give a try. Anyway, how do you use sandalwood for hair in India? I usually use amla and shikakai. Can I mix them with sandalwood? Useful hub, voted up!

Sandalwood and mung beans are also very good for the skin. But if used alone it may make your skin dry. Use them mixed with milk cream or milk. Thank you for the visit.
