Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation - Dr. Priyanka Gupta
Role of Ayurveda In Treating Hyperpigmentation
Abstract: Body’s largest organ “Skin”, covers the entire body and serves as a protective shield against heat, light, injury, infection and regulates body temperature. Skin has 7 layers as per ayurveda. Each layer extends itself to the deeper levels of the body and that is the reason most skin diseases are rooted deeply into various dhatus or tissues. The most common and major skin diseases that are seen are acne vulgaris, hyperpigmentation, psoriasis, eczema and urticaria. Skin diseases happen when the 3 doshas are out of balance. Ayurveda has an effective concept of understanding skin disorders. These skin diseases/disorders can be treated naturally with panchakarma therapy, ayurvedic herbal remedies, dietary changes, topical remedies and even stress management techniques. Ayurvedic treatment for Hyperpigmentation goes to the roots of the problem and treats it according to their cause. In Ayurveda, enhances complexion, blood purification are few terms specifying skin lightening. The unique, effective, and long lasting concept of skin lightening in Ayurveda has led to the emergence of Ayur cosmeceuticals. The herbs which alleviate pitta, rakta in general either acting through their rasa, vipāka or prabhāva are considered as varṇya. It may take a few weeks to show up signs of improvement, but you can be sure about its permanent solutions.
