Ayurveda And Healthy Skin

Ayurvedic doctors assess a person’s skin as an indicator of good health. When a person is in good health and has the three Doshas in balance, the skin looks fresh and glowing. Any Dosha imbalances are clearly seen by studying the nature and appearance of skin issues. 

Vata is an airy and drying Dosha. When a person has a Vata type of health issues, the skin is also overly dry and cold. The dry and thin skin gets more susceptible to problems like wrinkles and signs of aging. The skin also loses its fresh look. A suitable diet and practices that rebalance the Doshas are recommended. Too much work with little sleep and rest aggravate the problem. Being exposed to harsh environmental factors contributes to the dryness. 

Pitta Dosha is heaty. So, when a person has a Pitta Dosha type constitution, they are prone to inflammation of the skin. This can be in the form of acne and reddish blemishes. The person’s food habits should be modified to reduce the heating elements of overly spicy oily and acidic food.

Kapha is heavy and oily. So a person who has a Kapha imbalance will be prone to very oily skin that is also pale and moist. The person should avoid Kapha aggravating diets such as dairy, sweet and salty food. A lifestyle that is sedentary makes the problem worse. 

Ama is a metabolic waste that is formed when the digestive process in the body is inefficient. When a person has an unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet, and weak digestion, Ama is formed. This toxin can also add to the skin problems and dim the healthy glow. Overall good health is the key to skin health as well. 

A healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise, hydration, and diet that is appropriate to balance the Doshas leads to healthy and glowing skin. Ayurvedic ingredients that detoxify and relieve Ama also restore the skin’s glow. Ayurvedic treatments for the Tridosha balance are essential to maintain skin health. When the skin is treated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant Ama relieving substances, the skin heals from blemishes and scars. 


An Overview Of Skin Health

The topical application of anti-aging serums and creams helps restore the skin after damage and maintain skin health. Topical applications of restoratives help treat skin problems locally.
