In fact, it engulfs a good percentage of the population, and hence skin treatment has grown to be a multi-billion dollar industry. Today, many major corporations are adopting the tried and tested methods of ancient Ayurveda. Skin disease treatment in Ayurveda takes into account many factors including physical and mental wellbeing. Read along to know about some quick ways to fight skin diseases with Ayurveda. 

 

What Causes Skin Problems?


Rashes: The fire component reduces the accumulation of digestive impurities, which causes allergies and rashes. When the ama irritates the eyes, sinuses, or lungs, it can cause other allergic reactions like red, itchy eyes, or a runny nose.
Dry Skin: To improve digestion and skin, follow the simple lifestyle and diet tips listed below. The best approach is to decrease digestive toxins, which can cause skin problems.
Dry Lips: Anxiety, constipation, sleeplessness, headaches, excessive fatigue, intestinal gas, period pain, lower back pain, or joint pains are all symptoms of dry lips.
Bags Under the Eyes: The normal cycle provides the body with an opportunity to cleanse and revitalize itself. The body's natural detoxification ability deteriorates. Because bags under the eyes are frequently caused by digestive contaminants caused by slow digestion, the liver is the primary organ.
Cellulite: It is a condition that is more than just an accumulation of fat. Cellulite is a regional effect. It is a greasy, sticky substance that accumulates in fat cells and is extremely difficult to eliminate.

Then there are Papulosquamous disorders, the cause of which is largely unknown. They are more than just one type of skin disease. It's actually a term for a collection of unrelated skin conditions. Papulosquamous skin disorders cause flaky or scaly papules (red, raised bumps) and plaques (a flat, thickened area of skin). These patches may itch or not.


How Skin Problems Change to Skin Disease


Ayurveda has systematically categorized skin disorders as follows:

 

Maha Kusthas: Major skin disorders. The 7 types of Mahakushta are Audumbara (Oudumbara) Kushta, Kaapaala (Kapala) Kushta, Sidhma Kushta, Kaakana (Kakana) Kushta, Mandala Kushta, Rushyajihwa (Rishyajihwa) Kushta, Pundareeka (Pundarika) Kushta,.

 

Kshudra Kusthas: Minor skin disorders. The 11 types of Kshudra Kushta are Eka Kushta, Charmakhya Kushta, Pama Kushta, Kitibha Kushta, Vaipadika Kushta, Alasaka Kushta, Shataru Kushta, Dadru Kushta, Charmadala Kushta, Visphota Kushta, Vicharchika Kushta.

 

Here are a few ways that make your skin problems more severe leading to further issues:


Sunlight: Moderate exposure to sunlight is beneficial to our overall health, but excessive exposure can cause skin damage.
Temperature: Extreme temperatures, as well as the rate at which they change, have an effect on the skin. In cold weather, the skin reacts by constricting blood vessels to prevent the body from giving up too much heat. Cold temperatures for an extended period of time reduce sebaceous gland secretion and end up causing the skin to dry out.
Aggressive skin products: Skin is mildly acidic, with a pH ranging between 4.7 and 5.75. Alkaline-pH cleansers and moisturizers tax the skin's natural neutralizing ability, damage cell structure, and impair the barrier function of the epidermis's outermost layer. As a result, skin can become dry and sensitive, even hypersensitive, making it vulnerable to skin problems and flare-ups of diseases like Atopic Dermatitis or Rosacea.
Washing too frequently: Showering or taking a bath too frequently, for too long, and with too hot water causes a loss of the skin's natural moisturizing factors (known as NMFs) and exterior lipids. Skin tends to dry out and roughen.
Elevated stress: Unrestrained stress can make your skin more sensitive and cause problems such as acne.


How Ayurveda Helps to Prevent Skin Diseases


Most skin diseases, according to Ayurveda, are caused by Dhatus, or bodily tissues such as blood and fat. As a result, Ayurvedic treatments for skin diseases are penetrative, reaching deep into the layers of the skin to eliminate the problem at its source. While it may take a few weeks for signs of cure to appear, the results will be long-lasting.
Avoid doing the following to steer clear of skin problems:

 

  • Consumption of food items with opposing properties. For instance, yogurt and fruit, milk products, and sour fruits.
  • Repressing any natural desires (Vegavarodha).
  • Physical activity following a heavy meal
  • After a heavy meal, travelling, or going out in the sun
  • Excessive consumption of food items such as yogurt, slat fish, sour foods, and so on
  • Panchakarma application and administration errors (Ayurvedic detoxification).
  • Getting oil therapy and massages while Ama is still available in the body.

 

Effective Ways to Combat Skin Diseases in Ayurveda

 

Steaming: This helps to clear blockages in subtle channels or Srothas. It is not, however, advised in cases of inflammation.

Vamana: Vamana therapy involves the administration of herbs or medicines orally to induce vomiting. This removes Srotha blockages from the facial skin as well as the entire body.

Virechana: Also known as medicated purgation, Virechana therapy involves administering bitter, astringent, and sweet herbal purgatives to the body in order to reduce vitiated Pitta and Rakta (blood dhatu). During the inflammatory stages, vivechana can be performed.

Nasya: For the treatment of chronic acne conditions, suitable herbs and Ayurvedic medicine is administered through the nose.

Raktamokshana: It is an extremely effective treatment for vitiated Rakta Dhatu. Raktamokshana removes the stagnant blood that causes pathological changes in the body. Raktamokshana therapy includes para-surgical procedures such as letting blood through the use of leeches, Prachanna Karma, and Siravyadha. These treatments improve tissue microcirculation by removing vitiated and stagnant blood.
