Herbal Cure for Skin Care - Ayurvedic Medicines-Natural Treatment
The skin is the exposed part of the body. The skin either protects us from external forces of heat and cold, wind or dryness or allows them to enter into our body and cause various diseases. Therefore, the skin is closely related to the immune system. A good, lustrous and slightly oily skin indicates a good immune system and a good resistance to disease. Skin that is discolored, too dry or too oily, or inflamed indicates poor resistance to disease and possible impending health problems.

Right care of the skin, is therefore essential for good health. Many diseases manifest through the skin or show up as various skin problems.

They are also essential to any healthy life style as regular health maintenance procedures. We should all take good care of our skin, not simply out of cosmetic purposes but to protect our health as a whole and for disease prevention. If we choose cosmetics, we should choose natural remedies that protect the skin and stimulate its proper growth.
There are many types of skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, skin rashes and contact dermatitis. In Ayurveda, these are classified succinctly according to the three doshas. Those caused by external toxins, like poison oak or poison ivy, can usually be treated like the Pitta type.
Skin diseases are more common in Pitta types, because Pitta can overheat the blood and irritate the skin. Skin diseases that involve loss of skin pimgentation, such as leucoderma, are usually Pitta disorders as Pitta governs complexion.
Factors causing skin diseases include too much use of sour, salty or pungent tastes, too heavy, sweet or oily food, drinking of alcohol, exposure to the elements and overuse of cosmetics. They are similar to boils, carbuncles and other toxic blood conditions in their origin and treatment.
The skin relates to the plasma, to the outer disease pathway and to the blood. Skin diseases, therefore relate to the lungs and liver. The use of expectorants and diaphoretics to cleanse the lungs, and alteratives and bitter tonics to cleanse the liver, are important in the treatment of skin diseases and to maintain a healthy skin.
General Treatment of Skin diseases
There are many good herbs for cleansing and healing the skin. Among the best are turmeric (Curcumin), barberry, sandalwood and Guggul. Bakuchi is an important Ayurvedic herb for leucoderma, for restoring normal skin pimgentation and a rejuvenative to the skin, nails and hair. It can also be taken as medicated oil. Herbs for skin diseases should be applied externally as well as internally.
Ghee is excellent externally for inflammatory skin diseases, rashes and burns. Shatodhara ghrita are more absorbable to the skin and is excellent for all manner of skin rashes and burns.
Aloe gel is another helpful topical preparation for almost any kind of skin rash. Cilantro juice is good for most allergic skin conditions. Turmeric is also useful in treating acne and improving complexion. Saffron is a special herb for nourishing the skin, taken as a milk decoction. Shatavari cools the skin and relieves inflammation. It also hydrates the skin and improves the complexion. Even Neem is beneficial to treat all kinds of skin rashes and boils.
It should be noted that skin rashes sometimes get worse before they get better, as the heat and toxins are being dispelled from the body. One should not terminate a treatment too quickly if the diagnosis appears sound.
