Ayurvedic Solution For Dry Skin In Kerala

A healthy glowing skin means a younger looking you! We all strive to get that soft, moisturized, hydrated skin. But with current lifestyle and food habits, and increasing pollution skin issues are also increasing. One such problem that has put so many of us in distress is a dry skin. Dry skin makes one look older and wrinkles can appear on the face much earlier. Dry skin can be caused by taking hot showers for a long time, using unwanted cosmetic items, itchy rough clothes or harsh soaps etc. But as in almost every case, nature has remedies in store for you. Ayurveda can restore the healthy glowing skin that you once had. Here are some ayurvedic perceptions of dry skin.

What according to Ayurveda causes dry skin?

The Ayurveda says that dry skin is caused by Vata dosha. The qualities of Vata dosha opposes those of Kapha dosha ( that dosha which makes skin softer and smoother while Vata dosha makes skin rough and dry). So, obviously, an increase in Vata dosha will definitely result in a reduced Kapha dosha making the skin dry, rough and wrinkly.

Treatment for dry skin

According to Ayurveda, the Vata dosha can be removed through three steps of treatment i.e to cleanse, nourish and moisturize the Vata.

Cleanse the Vata

For dry skin, ground almond is mixed along with milk and a pinch of sugar and made into a paste. It is then applied to the skin. When applying the paste on the skin, make sure that scrubbing it in is avoided. If the skin is very dry, a proper mixture of yogurt and lemon juice is applied to the skin.

Nourish the Vata

The skin is given a regular massage to keep it nourished and hydrated and essential oils like coconut or sesame oil are applied on the wet skin to stimulate the absorption of nutrients needed.
Masks based on flowers are applied to the face to delay wrinkles and fine lines.

Moisturize the Vata

Natural moisturizers like aloe vera gel rose water or chamomile is used to moisturize the Vata.
Vata dosha diet is also prescribed by the doctor. The patient will have to follow a strict diet which includes cooked and warm food as Vata dosha skin is more inclined to warm food. So, cold food ought to be avoided. Drinking hot tea, warm drinks or having rice and other grains is quite beneficial for such skin types.

Vitiligo Treatment With Ayurvedic Hands
Vitiligo a.k.a Leucoderma is a pigmentation disorder in which the Melanocytes (pigmentation cells) in the skin area are completely destroyed. It results in the appearance of white patches on the skin in different parts of the body. Vitiligo starts as a small patch, but over a time period, it starts to spread throughout the body. Though it is not contagious but affects the person psychologically.
Switra or Kilasa is the Ayurvedic term of Vitiligo. Vatika, Paithika, and Kaphaj are the three forms of Switra. They have the features of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Causes of Vitiligo

  •  Vitiligo is classified as an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system destroys its own body tissues.
  •  Family history
  •  Triggering events such as stress, sunburn or exposure to heavy industrial chemicals

Symptoms of Vitiligo

  •  White patches all over the body i.e. face, feet, and hands
  •  Premature graying of hair on scalp, eyelashes, beard, and eyebrows
  •  Loss of color inside the mouth and nose (mucous membranes)
  •  Loss or color change in the inner layer of the eyeball (retina)

Vitiligo Treatment

Even though many treatments are available for Vitiligo, it is quite difficult to treat the disorder entirely. Ayurveda, the ancient medication offers the safest treatment for Vitiligo with nil side effects. The disease is treated instead of treating the symptoms in this holistic treatment. Ayurveda helps to improve metabolism of the body which in turn enhances body’s immunity

  •  Ayurveda cleanses and purifies the blood and restores the skin color
  •  Corrects the digestion and prescribes a proper diet avoiding Virudhahara (unbalanced diet)
  •  The holistic approach does not only treat Vitiligo completely but also arrests the relapse and spread of the disease.

Dr. R.S. Roy is the Chief Physician and Managing Director of Amrita Ayurveda Medical Centre, Tripunithura. He is a descendant of a famous Ayurvedic family. Besides general Ayurveda, Dr. Roy specifically focused on the Ayurvedic treatment for Vitiligo and has been adorned with many awards and accolades for his excellence in Ayurvedic dermatology.
