WHAT CAUSES ADULT-ACNE?
Androgens, Estrogen and Progesterone play a critical role in the appearance of adult-acne in women. These events change skin cell activities and influence sebum production whose excess shows up as adult-acne. Plus, if you’re on medication that includes corticosteroids or birth control, chances are that you may experience frequent flare-ups including inflammation and adult-acne. And if you're going through menopause, you'll already know why you're suddenly seeing a pimple for the first time, or after a very long time.
Many modern researchers have spoken about the direct relationship between stress and acne. As stress increases, the level of androgens in our body goes up that lead to a rise in inflammation and acne-causing elements.
Vigorous rubbing and scrubbing can lead the skin to become dry for which it compensates by producing excessive sebum, which can cause acne even in adults.
Consuming food that is Pitta aggravating can cause acne in everyone regardless of age. If your composition is primarily Pitta-dominant, avoid consuming foods that are hot in nature and spicy.
Lack of hydration and required moisturization trigger the skin’s need of excess sebum that may cause whiteheads, blackheads, milia and acne.
Frequent exposure to pollutants and UV rays remain two of the biggest contributing factors in the appearance and aggravation of acne. Impurities like dirt, dust and smoke stay trapped inside pores resulting in clogging and congestion. Similarly, prolonged hours under the sun lead to dryness which is again compensated by an increase in sebum production.
Yet, one of the major causes of adult-acne and congested skin is usage of wrong skincare. Topical creams with retinoids, along with the wrong combination of actives, pH imbalanced skincare, and pore-clogging makeup can cause acne.
But most importantly, if you have ever used Benzoyl Peroxide in your younger years that stinged and burned, chances are that it has left your skin dried, redness-prone, peeling, irritated, sensitive, flushed and causing exactly what it was supposed to prevent - acne.
Salicylic acid has been in use for years to peel off warts, corns and calluses!
It works by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and dissolving the substance that causes skin cells to stick together.
Though it may offer temporary relief from the look of spots, breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads and blemishes, what it does for your skin in the long run is decrease the elasticity of the skin and make it prone to wrinkles and fine lines!
Unfortunately, chances are that a lot of non-Ayurvedic skincare that you use specifically for reducing the look of dark spots and blemishes have Salicylic Acid in it, a lot of which also irritate most skin types and cause redness.
What if we told you that there is a natural herb in Ayurveda that contains properties similar to that of Salicylic Acid, in its PUREST form?
With phytochemicals that mimic the characteristics of Salicylic acid, this Ayurvedic ‘Natural Purifier’ can help with the look of adult-acne!
Neem - A Clinically Proven Herb with a Long List of Benefits
Also known as ‘Indian Lilac’ in English, Ayurveda describes Neem as ‘Sarva Roga Nivarini’ which means the ‘Curer of All Ailments’. The first written records of the benefits of each part of this unique herb is from 4,500 years ago, but has been in use for much longer than that.
Neem is loaded with almost 400 complex and diverse phytochemicals. A study(1) reveals that this purifying & pacifying herb has proteins, vitamins C & E, ascorbic acid, several flavonoids, tannins, fatty acids & their derivatives.
According to another study, Neem has naturally occurring compounds that mimic the properties of salicylic acid (2). While regular usage and high concentrations of salicylic acid can irritate skin, disturb its pH and cause dryness, Neem, being rich in Vitamin E, has a nourishing nature.
It also has Linoleic Acid and Esters of Oleic Acid, which lend it excellent oil-balancing properties. According to a study, applying neem oil regularly on the face is extremely beneficial for acne-prone skin(2).
Its oil is in fact, one of the few oils that are recommended for acne-prone, clogged skin types that are susceptible to acne, breakouts and flare-ups as it purifies and nourishes skin and reduces the look of blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Neem oil upholds the status of being safe, non-pore clogging and non-sensitizing for aggravated skin.
And if you’ve become comfortable with using Tea Tree Oil, research has also shown that targeted application of tea tree oil works by drying out acne-prone skin to reduce the appearance of acne and pimples. This leads to skin turning extremely dry, flaky and prone to redness.
The extremely potent Neem oil is rich in a pacifying extract called Nimbidin, whose cooling properties have been proven to soothe and reduce the look of redness, inflammation and irritation(3).
But wait! The list of its proven benefits goes on.
This kind, non-sensitizing herb has benefits for skin in all phases of life. In a study(4), Neem was found effective in significantly reducing the symptoms of skin aging such as the look of wrinkles, sagginess and water loss.
While neem is uber-nourishing on its own, what you’re getting with this Clarifying Masque is a synergistic and conscious blend of not just 1, but 3 Ayurvedic Super-herbs!
To hypercharge the benefits of purifying Neem, even-toning and brightening Amla & age-defying Tulsi come together to boost the clarifying and purifying powers of Neem and complement it to ensure your skin receives a COMPLETE detoxing + brightening + even-toning experience – something that neem cannot achieve on its own!
And today, you can get those benefits in a unique masque, a targeted formulation designed for skin prone to adult-acne, age spots, blackheads, whiteheads, blemishes, congested and clogged pores that’s unlike any you’ve ever seen before!
One of the earliest known fruits, Amla (a.k.a Indian Gooseberry) is revered as an effective clarifying, even-toning and brightening ingredient by modern dermatologists, skincare experts and Ayurvedic ‘Gurus’ alike.
Amla is also recognized as one of the richest natural sources of Vitamin C in the whole world. It is even said that fresh amla juice holds 20 times as much vitamin C as is present in orange juice.
In fact, a study substantiates its even-toning, hydrating and youth-enhancing properties (5).
Another study also proves that the phytoconstituents in Amla such as flavonoids and tannins have age-defying properties. The extracts from Amla were proven to be effective in reducing the look of photo-induced aging.(6)
Rightly dubbed as the ‘Mother Herb’, Amla has remained an essential ingredient in several Indian households and DIY recipes when it comes to taking care of the skin, hair or overall health.
Interestingly, Vitamin C derived from Amla, unlike other Vitamin C skincare, is non-stinging and non-irritating, making it even suitable for sensitive skin types!
The rich presence of Vitamin C in Amla lends its brightening properties to the skin and leaves it looking even toned and clarified.
This makes the Neem Amla Clarifying Masque extremely effective for those who are looking to reduce the prominent appearance of dark spots, acne spots left from their teen years, blemishes, age spots and an overall uneven skin tone, and deeply hydrating for the skin to promote a supple, vitality-filled look.

Wondering how the Neem Amla Clarifying Masque gets its striking electric blue color?
The masque owes its color to the combination of a mineral-derived ingredient - Chromium Oxide - PLUS natural ingredients
including Neem, Amla, Tulsi and Kaolin clay.
Made with precision in small batches, the color of the masque can vary.
While this batch carries an electric blue color, other batches can have a greener shade as the colors of natural ingredients tend to change with time, without any difference in their efficacy.
And finally, the Age-Defying Component in this Masque Formulation
Although modern science is only now waking up to the powers of Tulsi, Ayurveda had recognized the purifying and refining powers of this ‘divine’ herb a long, long time back!
Tulsi or Holy Basil has been revered as one of the MOST esteemed rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda and has purifying, cleansing, calming, nourishing and youth-enhancing benefits.
It not only balances both dryness and excessive oiliness, but also promotes a clearer appearance given its inherent astringent nature.
All parts of this exotic herb are known to have benefits for the body, skin, hair and mind.
Tulsi carries an important bio-active compound, known as URSOLIC ACID that is responsible for reducing the appearance of signs of aging, roughness, dullness, uneven skin tone and redness.
A clinical trial done on females aged 35-60 to assess the effectiveness of twice a day usage of a moisturizer containing Ursolic Acid showed (after 8 weeks), a statistically significant improvement in all grading parameters: the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, clarity and brightness of the skin, visual roughness, tactile roughness, the look of redness, the appearance of pigmentation, and overall appearance.(8)
Modern research and clinical studies continue to reveal even more benefits of Ursolic acid - but Ayurveda already discovered its powers thousands of years ago through Tulsi!
And today, you can get those benefits in a targeted Face Masque that amplifies the effects of Tulsi by combining it synergistically with Neem and Amla for COMPLETE DETOXIFICATION!
If you’re on the fence about trying a clay masque given their over-drying, intensive nature, it’s time to re-think!
The clay used in the Ayulogica Clarifying Face Masque – Kaolin Clay – is the softest and the gentlest of all clays, which is why it is known as 'The Soft Clay'. It is used in cosmetics to remove toxin build up from the skin without excessively drying it out or disturbing the skin’s natural moisture barrier. An excellent choice of clay for dry and sensitive skin types, Kaolin is a gentle absorbent that can clear gunk and excess oil from the skin and tighten the appearance of enlarged and clogged pores without aggravating sensitivity or dryness.
To ensure that the skin is not left feeling overly dry and completely stripped of moisture, the Ayulogica Clarifying Face Masque also features Aloe Vera & 2 moisturizing herbal oil for a comfortable after-feel. It ensures that even when your skin is clean, it does not feel stripped of moisture,dried out and uncomfortable.
This balanced combination of ingredients in the Ayulogica Clarifying Face Masque does not let your skin feel tight like a clay sculpture!
The fine powder of Bentonite clay forms when volcanic ash ages. Rich in calcium, magnesium and iron, Bentonite is highly mineral-rich. Other than purifying the skin, it also has a temporary tightening effect on the skin and helps minimize the appearance of prominent pores. Bentonite clay carries naturally soothing and calming properties and has been used for centuries to calm down the look of irritation and adverse reactions. (9)
It effectively absorbs excess oil to give the skin a matte finish making it suitable for oily and combination skin types.
Gluconolactone is a powdery substance extracted from gluconic acid, found in corn. It is a mild exfoliator formed by many groups of hydrogen-oxygen pairs. It’s these numerous water-attracting hydroxyl groups that give gluconolactone hydrating and moisture-retaining properties.
Approved by famous dermatologists and clinical scientists, this compound has been declared safe in cosmetic products for making the skin look brighter, smoother and more even-toned.
It also keeps skin covered and functions as an extra layer of protection because of its potent humectant (skin conditioning) property. Also, due to its high Vitamin C and E levels, Gluconolactone is a wonderful ingredient for not just damaged skin, but in fact, for all skin types, and Gluconolactone is a great pick for anyone with sensitive skin(10)

Scoop out the required amount from the jar (you can use your clean fingers or a clean brush).
Apply a thin layer on clean face and neck, spreading evenly throughout
Let the masque sit on your face for 3 minutes, while you go about your errands (don’t worry, this, unlike usual face masques, won’t flake on movement)
After 3 minutes, wash it off with lukewarm water or wipe it off gently with a wet cotton cloth.
A Little Goes a Long Way!
The Ayulogica Clarifying Masque is so potent and smooth-going that you won’t need a lot of it to cover your face and neck. Apply only a very thin layer of the masque all over your skin. After you wash off the masque, you’ll notice that even a thin layer delivered the desired results – clean, clear, de-congested and brightened skin. That’s the intensity and efficacy of the Ayulogica Clarifying Face Masque! Moreover, covering your skin with a thick layer of the masque won’t guarantee better or quicker results. A thicker layer of the masque will only lead to wastage of more product. A thin layer stays closer to the skin’s surface and hence delivers nourishment more intensely to the skin.
One chemical peel can cost anything from $100 to $500. The damage it does to the balance of your skin? Not measurable!
Let's not forget the abrasive nature of physical exfoliators like face scrubs and the micro-tears they leave behind.
And who wants to add the mess of peel-off masks to their life?
Before you think about spas, remember that even one specialized facial at a spa can cost anything from $60 to $200. That’s 1 single 1-hour session.
Now, problems like adult hormonal acne, blemishes, age spots and uneven skin tone don't get resolved in a single one-hour session. You need at least 4 sessions, which means anything between $400 - $2000!
On the other hand, you're getting this targeted, scientifically formulated and Ayurvedically intensified face masque for less than $50, which can probably last you anything from 2-3 months, depending on how much you use!
Just 3 minutes and 1 use every week is enough to see visible results, without feeding your skin anything it does not need!
Made with potent ingredients that aren't easily available in the West through a powerful union of Ayurvedic wisdom and Modern research, Ayulogica brings quality, convenience, affordability and satisfaction to your skincare!
Rest assured with our 100% satisfaction, 30-day money-back guarantee.
Your pores trap layers of dirt and impurities every day. While a face cleanser can help you remove impurities from the surface of the skin, it often falls short of reaching beneath the layers. If your skin is not deeply cleansed, those pore-clogging impurities might remain stuck, resulting in breakouts and even infection!
Only a deeply clarifying, intensive facial masque with nourishing natural ingredients to complement it, can reach inside the pores and beneath the top layers of the skin to clean it from within. A face masque not just cleans, but ensures a complete detoxifying action that adds the extra credit of clarity, brightness and smoothness to your skin.
Not to forget the nourishment a face masque delivers to your pores in the 3 or 5 minutes it is kept on the skin. The Ayulogica Neem Amla Clarifying Face Masque, with its rich and pure herbal properties, delivers the goodness of nature straight to your pores in every use!
Ayulogica is a scientifically formulated skincare brand.
Based on the principles of Ayurveda where Ayus (Long Life) + Veda (Knowledge or Science) = Knowledge or Science of Longevity in Sanskrit (the ancient language spoken in India by scholars). Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old medicine considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science, it originated in India and is more relevant now in our present-day modern life where stress is the new norm.
According to Ayurveda, we can all achieve optimum health if we have a balance between our mind, body, and inner self or soul. As defined by the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), in line with the World Health Organization’s definition of health, wellness is: “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.” This is unlike the way modern medicine approach is - Absence of disease equals good health. The root causes of imbalances in our lifestyle that lead to problems later in life, can be addressed by knowing our current state of balance or “vikriti”. If there are any lingering imbalances after removing the root cause, balance can be attained by using opposites. For example, if it is winter season and body is feeling cold, you treat it with warm foods and warm clothes. It is simple approach, yet we are unable to listen to our body ques. We are distracted all the time and this is where Ayurveda comes into place.
There are three distinct energies or dosha – vata, pitta, kapha.
They are the essential building blocks for all forms of life and are composed of the five elements - air, space, water, fire and earth. A combination of these elements makes up the three doshas. Just like we have a unique DNA, we all are born with a unique combination of these elements (or prakriti). Our dosha changes continuously in reference to external factors like the environment we live in, our lifestyle, the food we eat, our social and mental health. This leads to imbalances and health issues. By knowing our current state of health, and following the diet that is right for our dosha, doing the exercises and sleeping at the right time, we can get back to our homeostasis.
Skin is the largest organ! Skin is like a sponge and is affected by our inner health. Stress can affect your whole body, including your skin, hair, and nails. Your emotions have a powerful effect on your skin. Since stress is a part of life, what matters is how you handle it. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. It can also make it harder for skin problems to heal.
You may have noticed that when you are stressed, you break out more? This is because stress causes your body to produce cortisol and other hormones, which tells your sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Part of the problem is our lifestyle that forces us to have a deep disconnect with our bodies, including our skin. We neglect our skin and then cover up our flaws with make-up which leads to more skin issues like clogged pores, acne, rashes, and inflammation. It is imperative that we look after our skin by nourishing it with skin food both externally and internally based on our current mind-body profile or dosha. This is the foundation of Ayulogica – a completely customized approach towards your skincare based on your lifestyle, your current state of mind and body balance. We incorporate adaptogens, like Ashwagandha and Tulsi, that reportedly promote homeostasis, for example by reducing cellular sensitivity and immune suppression. We target towards addressing stress related skin problems using a sustainable approach where less is more and products are multi-tasking for the multi-tasking women and men.
