When there are issues with the skin, the nature of the skin problem can be determined by observing the colour and characteristics of the skin problem.
The dry nature of the Vata Dosha when aggravated can cause skin problems that have symptoms of pain, prickling, dryness and a rough texture.
A Pitta Dosha skin problem is observed to be red or coppery in colour and tends to have oozing. One example of a common Pitta skin problem is Acne.
Skin with Kapha Dosha imbalance is itchy, oily and is pale in colour.
