Ailments Addressed Blemishes
Blemishes are dark patches or areas of discoloration on skin. Blemishes occur due to many reasons such as boils, pimples, cuts, burns, and due to skin diseases and infections. Environmental factors like pollution, sun exposure, stress and hormonal changes are additional causes of blemishes. At times, due to hypopigmentation or hyper pigmentation blemishes of light or dark colour can appear on the skin. Blemishes also appear in the form of dark circles around eyes.
Though they are harmless, they cause inferiority complex, discomfort and lack of confidence in the sufferer.
Skin is naturally elastic in nature. Stretch marks occur when there is a rapid pulling of skin. When skin is pulled the normal production of collagen is disrupted forming stretch marks. Collagen is the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in skin. Basically, whoever undergoes a rapid change in their body can develop stretch marks. In women, during pregnancy, the skin expands and stretches causing stretch marks on abdomen. Stretch marks can be caused due to weight gain or obesity and weight loss as well. Bodybuilders are easily prone to stretch marks.
Stretch marks may fade or disappear over time. However, they take a long time to fade causing embarrassment and discomfort in the sufferers.
There are many creams and ointments available in the market for the treatment of blemishes, acne scars and stretch marks. However, many of them fail to produce any remarkable effect. The other treatment options for these skin problems are highly expensive and sometimes unaffordable to the common man. One such treatment option is cosmetic laser treatment. Unfortunately, laser treatment does not work 100% for mature stretch marks as the tear causes a permanent change in the skin.
As mentioned earlier, mature or old scars or marks cannot be treated easily. It takes persistence and regularity to make them fade. Ayurveda recommends the use of certain herbs like Tulsi (Holy Basil), Manjishta, Margosa (neem), and Sandal wood for reducing marks on skin. Manjishta or Indian Madder is a highly effective herbal remedy for stretch marks.
As a natural remedy for stretch marks, massage daily with cocoa butter or shea butter after a warm bath.
For prevention of pregnancy caused stretch marks, regular application of aloe vera juice and Vitamin E oil is advised.
