Beauty is the desire of every individual. The concept of using herbs and therapies for beautification is well defined in Ayurveda. “You are what you digest.” A radiant, clear complexion begins with proper nutrition, efficient digestion and assimilation of nutrients by the body, and regular elimination.
Ayurveda defines skin types based on Vata (dry), Pitta (sensitive) and Kapha (oily). Any imbalance in the doshas (bodily humors) may have an adverse effect on the skin as well. Since the skin is exposed to all kinds of pollutants and varied weather conditions, it requires extra attention and care based on the varied seasons and the age of a person.
Ayurveda ensures that the skin care therapies are effective from within the system by rebalancing the dosha derangements and cleanse the Rakta dhathu (blood) which nurtures the skin, by eradicating the impurities.
Ayurveda emphasizes external and internal beauty. It is believed in Ayurveda that one can enhance internal beauty by understanding and following the basic principles of Ayurveda. Health promotion, beauty management and healing in Ayurveda rely on freeing the body of ama (toxins), restoring cellular nutrition, facilitating complete elimination and re-establishing the balance of the doshas.
Ayurveda determined beauty by prakriti (Body constitution), sara (structural predominance), sanhanan (compactness of body), twak (skin completion), Praman (Measurement). According to Ayurveda, healthy skin is a result of the overall health condition of individuals, and prescribes numerous skin care treatments that need to be pursued at every stage of life. The function of ayurvedic herbs is to purify skin & eliminate the vitiated Tridoshas (Vitiated Humors) from the body as they are mainly responsible for skin disorders and other diseases.
The origins of Ayurvedic Cosmeceuticals date back to the Indus Valley Civilization. The use of cosmetics was not only directed towards developing an attractive external appearance, but towards achieving longevity with good health .
Ayurvedic cosmeceuticals are very much prized for their safe, holistic action. According to Ayurveda, a number of factors determine skin health and youthfulness. These include proper moisture balance (Kapha in balance), effective functioning of the metabolic mechanisms that coordinate all the various chemical and hormonal reactions of the skin (Pitta in balance) and efficient circulation of blood and nutrients to the different layers of the skin (Vata in balance). The health of the following three dhatus (types of body tissue) are especially reflected in the skin: nutritional fluid (Rasa), blood (Rakta) and muscle (Mamsa). Rasa supports all the body tissues, particularly keeping the skin healthy, Rakta, in association with liver function, helps detoxify the skin of toxins, while Mamsa provides firmness to the skin.
