Human skin, the outer covering of the body, is the largest organ in the body. It also constitutes the first line of defense. Skin contains many specialized cells and structures. It is divided into three main layers viz. epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Each layer provides a distinct role in the overall function of the skin. Epidermis, the outer most layer of the skin, varies in thickness in different regions of the body. It is the thinnest on the eyelids (0.05 mm) and the thickest on the palms and soles (1.5 mm). The dermis also varies in thickness depending on the location of the skin. It is 0.3 mm on the eyelid and 3.0 mm on the back of the body. The dermis is attached to an underlying hypodermis or subcutaneous connective tissue. The subcutaneous tissue is a layer of fat and connective tissue that houses larger blood vessels and nerves. This layer is important in the regulation of temperature of the skin itself and the body. The size of this layer varies throughout the body and from person-to-person. Hair follicles, sweat glands and sebaceous glands are the main skin appendages.
The skin guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. There are two general types of skin, hairy and glabrous skin. However, the skin can be dry, sensitive, pale, sagging or tired. People deficient in essential nutrients such as beta-carotene, the B complex vitamins and vitamins C and E often suffer from the drying of the skin.
FUNCTIONS OF SKIN
Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a key role in protecting (the body) against pathogens and excessive water loss. Its other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, storage and synthesis of vitamin D by action of ultraviolet (UV) and the protection of vitamin B folates, absorption of oxygen and drugs and water resistance. Severely damaged skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue. This is often discolored and depigmented.
COMMON SKIN PROBLEMS
Skin disease is a common ailment and it affects all ages from the neonate to the elderly and cause harm in number of ways. There are more than a thousand conditions that may affect the skin but most skin diseases can be categorized into nine common types.
A rash is an area of red, inflamed skin or a group of individual spots. These can be caused by irritation, allergy, infection, an underlying disease, as well as by structural defects for example, blocked pores or malfunctioning oil glands. Examples of rashes include acne, dermatitis, eczema, hives, pityriasis rosea and psorasis.
These occur when a virus penetrates the stratum corneum and infects the inner layers of the skin. Examples of viral skin infections include herpes simplex, shingles (herpes zoster) and warts. Some systemic viral infections, such as chicken pox and measles, may also affect the skin. Viral infections cannot be cured with antibiotics.
Such infections are caused by a variety of bacteria, the most common types being staphylococci and streptococci. Bacteria may infect the topmost layers of skin, the follicles, or the deeper layers of skin. If not treated correctly, these infections may spread throughout the body. Examples include impel folliculitis, cellulitis and lyme disease. Bacterial infections are better treated with antibiotics. But we have natural antibiotics available in natural products with no side effects unlike the synthetic antibiotics.
Harmless fungi are always present on surface of the skin. Infection occurs when these organisms enter into the body. These infections are usually superficial, affecting the skin, hair, nails and include athlete’s foot, lock itch and ringworm. However, in people with suppressed immune system or who have been taking antibiotics for long period -, the fungi may spread to deep within the body, causing more serious disease.
These infections occur after exposure to parasites such as lice and scabies.
The amount of pigment in the skin is determined by the amount of melanin being produced by the body. Loss of pigment (hypo pigmentation) can be caused by absence of melanocytes, malfunctioning cells, exposure to cold or chemicals, or some types of infection. An increase in pigment (hyperpigmentation) may be caused by skin irritation, hormonal changes, aging, a metabolic disorder, or any other underlying problem. Age spots, freckles and melasma are examples of hyper pigmentation. Vitiligo is an example of hypo pigmentation.
Tumors and cancers
These growths arise when skin cells begin to multiply faster than normal. Not every skin growth is cancerous. Some tumors are harmless and will not spread. Skin cancer is the most common of all the cancers, affecting many in urban population. It is caused, in 90% of cases, by sun exposure. The three types of skin cancers are basal cell cancer (the most curable), squamous cell cancer (which may grow and spread) and malignant melanoma (the most deadly form). Prevention involves protecting the skin against damaging ultraviolet rays, maintaining the small intestine healthy for better nutrient absorption, adding natural sources of omega 3 fatty acids to diet for natural essential oils in the skin. Early detection helps to improve the chances of a cure. Regular self-examinations are, therefore, recommended.
Trauma describes an injury to the skin caused by a blow, a cut, or a burn. Whenever the surface of the skin is broken, the body becomes more susceptible to infection and disease.
Wrinkles, rosacea, spider veins and varicose veins are among those conditions that cannot be neatly categorized. Wrinkles are caused by a breakdown of the collagen and elastin within the dermis, which results in sagging skin. Rosacea is a chronic disorder in which the skin of the face becomes red and develops pimples, lesions and more rarely enlargement of the nose. Its cause is unknown. Spider veins and varicose veins become apparent when blood vessels enlarge and become visible through the surface of the skin.
AYURVEDIC APPROACH TO SKINCARE
Ailments, from stress to acne to stomach aches, originate when the system gets imbalanced. All the Ayuvedic treatments work by bringing these principles back into balance. Before we start, it’s important to determine the Ayurverdic skin type:-
Vata skin tends to be darker, dry and has a tendency of being rough. Cool to the touch and often thin, this skin type is likely to experience excessive flakiness, dryness and eczema when in stress.
Pitta skin is soft, oily, fair to pale and has a warm complexion. Medium thick, this type of skin is more prone to acne,rashes and sores when you experience an imbalance.
Kapha skin type that is thick, oily, typically very light and cool to the touch. Kapha skin shows enlarged pores, blackheads and water retention in the process of imbalance.
With this understanding, let’s explore Ayurvedic rituals that work on delivering beauty. Here are three areas of life where listening to your dosha and taking action to correct any imbalances is crucial to the quality of your skin:
Food and water forms the core of nourishment for your skin, so you need to eat well and eat for your type. Its obvious, but Ayurveda recommends that you should eat by acknowledging the body’s natural triggers of thirst and hunger.
The quantity of your consumption at a time is also important. Ayurveda suggests that your stomach should be filled with food, water and air at mealtime, with an emphasis on fresh foods. The basic thought in ayurveda is that incompatible food creates toxins in your body, which in turn creates imbalance in your basic doshas.
Some of the best foods to correct imbalances in your dosha:
Vata: Avoid dried fruits, apples, melons, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, beef and peas. Eat avocados, sweet fruits, cherries and oranges.
green salads, sunflower seeds, mangos, pears, plums and mushrooms.
Kapha: Avoid coconut, dates, pineapples and dairy products. Eat dried fruits, pomegranate, cranberries and basmati rice.
Lifestyle & Exercise
Your daily lifestyle habits and exercise have a great impact on the health and vitality of your skin. Overarching lifestyle guidance in Ayurveda includes waking up early before sunrise and going to sleep before 10PM during night; eating breakfast before 10AM in the morning, lunch before noon and dinner before the sunsets.
Exercise and physical activity is beneficial across the board for the skin (and for eliminating the toxins that cause skin ailments).
Some of the best yoga asanas to correct imbalances in your dosha:
Vata: head stands, backward bends, plows, cobra, locust and lotus poses
Pitta: shoulder stands, half wheel, hidden lotus and fish poses
Now that we’ve discussed on how to eat and move, let’s focus on how to really treat the skin depending on your dosha.
Vata: This skin type tends to dry out quickly and is especially vulnerable to shifts in weather. Vata skin must be protected from harsh cold and heat, and pampered to retain its moisture and natural oil. You need to avoid hot water baths and showers, as it dries your skin and one needs to be sure to use pH-balanced soaps as well as drink lots of water for hydration.
You should also steam your skin with mint leaves and water to open your pores and increase circulation. Try to gently massage aloe vera onto your skin when you need extra moisture. Avocado, that is rich in Antioxidant is also great for vata skin as it is full of vitamins and fatty acids.
Pitta: This skin is prone to rashes, so it needs to be treated with gentle care. Cleansing with rose water, exfoliating with a sugar scrub and moisturizing with coconut oil are some excellent options one can improvise.
Kapha: This skin type is oily in nature and is prone to acne as well. It Is very important to avoid milk or dairy products in your diet and for skin care, exfoliating with sea salt and honey scrub is a good option, along with adding turmeric to your regimen.
