How to Treat Skin Problems in Ayurveda?
Best Ayurvedic Tips by Dr. Vikram Chauhan (MD-Ayurveda)
Interviewer: Good Evening Dr. Vikram.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Good Evening
Interviewer: Dr. Vikram there are females who are having many skin problems these days and lot of beauty products are available in market. They use but they don't get any results. Main problem in females is blemishes, acne, and skin patches, dark circles around eyes. So is there anything in Ayurveda for this?
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Yeah! There are so many wonderful Ayurvedic medicines. Actually what is happening, Ayurveda has become very commercialized thing. The natural medicines, the herbs, the cosmetics, it has become very commercialized.
Interviewer: Cosmetic market is the biggest market these days.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: What ladies are doing they are just buying the cosmetic products, applying on the face sometimes they gave results. If the problem is external, some time they don't give the results, and then they get fed up. They lose their faith in Ayurveda, lose their faith in natural herbs. But actually the problem is most of the time inside. There are some accumulated toxins in the blood. The blood is not clean. So the system is not good. It's not working, the metabolism is not proper, the colon is not getting cleaned. There is constipation. Sometimes so many problems, which come out on the face in the form of blemishes, dark patches or in the form of under eye dark circles, in the form of acne. So every disease has some root cause inside, so in Ayurveda we have wonderful combinations, wonderful herbs, neem is one of them. I am going to name a few herbs, neem is wonderful it's nature's best blood cleanser, neem is given to every person who is having any sort of skin problem. Blemishes, in dark circle, in acne, in psoriasis, in Lichen planus. Whatever be the disease. Bacteria or metabolic or fungal or whatever skin problem one is suffering from, neem is the answer to all skin problems. Neem is free from any type of side effects.
Interviewer: Yeah! It is very easily available.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Very easily available, and can be used very easily. So Neem is one of them. Second is combination I have made Radiant Skin Formula, Radiant Skin Hair Nails Formula, so this radiant skin formula. I used pitapapada, neem, manjistha, all such herbs which reduce the fire element in the body. Because too much fire is cause of blemishes, is the cause of pitta. Red patches or the dark patches, take out the aura from your face. So this Radiant Skin Hair Nails Formula is wonderful for skin problems, another one is neem and aloe vera. Aloe vera is a miracle.
Interviewer: Aloe vera found is in almost every cosmetic product.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Every cosmetic product contains aloe vera. So aloe is widely exploited herb, in the name of cosmetics because of its effectiveness in skin problems. So we are using extract of aloe vera, what as capsules are not easily available, then you plant a tree and take out the gel and apply on the face or you can eat the gel.
Interviewer: Ok for internal use.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: For internal use, it is cleansing in nature. In Ayurveda there is verse about this aloe vera ' ' ''kumari bhedni sheeta tikta netrya rasayani mudravrahini balya vata vish pranut." So this is in Sanskrit language. Kumari is name of aloe vera. Kumari is called kaumarya in sanskrit, bhedni means it clears the path, clears the toxins from the cells, shita means its cooling in nature. There is misconception that it is very hot in nature, it is not hot in nature, its cooling in nature, tikta means slightly bitter in nature, netrya means improves the eye sight, rasayani means it is rejuvenative, it contains so many vitamins, minerals, it's very good for overall health. Vata vish pranut means it clears away the Vata and balances the Vata and takes away the poison. So blemishes are gone, acne is clear, skin is all shiny and lustrous.
Interviewer: Ok so is there anything for local application also in Ayurveda?
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Yeah! There is wonderful classical formulation it is called kumkumadi tailam. This is a wonderful oil, very good for all types of blemishes, kumkumadi tailam is but I recommend, this is for all blemishes, dark circles under eye dark patches. Try to drink more water, more natural food, fruits and vegetables, avoid late night sleep, avoid stress anxiety.
Interviewer: Yeah! Life style should be good.
Dr. Vikram Chauhan: Lifestyle of course is very important.
Interviewer: So Dr. Vikram this combination of herbs, its available in package, Skin Care Pack, So thank you very much Dr. Vikram for sharing your information.
