Skin is the most vulnerable part of the body. It is a well-known fact that day to day exposure of human skin leads to the number of problems such as acne, pimples, pigmentation and sunburn marks. The most common skin disease now days is acne. Acne vulgaris (commonly called acne) is a follicular skin disease that mainly affects the Pilosebaceous unit of the face, neck, and trunk and is characterized by inflammatory (papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts) and non-inflammatory lesions (Seborrhoea and Comedones) and scarring. Acne is associated mostly with Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) which produces inflammation with the release of extracellular enzymatic products like proteases, hyaluronidases, and lipases. About 90–95% of the pubertal population, 25–45% of adults and < 25% of women suffered from skin conditions like acne, black spots etc. Even after 25 years of age, women can suffer from adult female acne. The numbers of topical and systematic therapies using synthetic ingredients are available for so long to cure Acne vulgaris. Due to high risk and side effects associated with synthetic drugs used therapies, internal and external herbal remedies are considered to be a more effective and safe alternative for the treatment for Acne vulgaris Acne vulgaris has been studied and developed and as an outcome, natural approaches to fighting acne and its disfiguring effects have gained popularity due to their effectiveness.
