Toxins can manifest in the skin as inflammation, blemishes, and acne. Ayurveda eliminates these problems by detoxifying and cleansing from the inside out. Ayurvedic treatments and skin remedies can restore the clear and beautiful complexion.


  • Pitta skin conditions are distinguished by redness, swelling, and infection
  • Vata manifests as dry, scaly, itchy skin
  • Kapha skin conditions show up as oozing or weepy rashes


From an ayurvedic perspective, the major underlying cause of disease is improper diet and lifestyle. If you pursue a diet or lifestyle that goes against your nature (known as your prakriti), you can develop a bodily imbalance that gives rise to skin disorders.

While imbalance of any dosha may cause skin disease, it is associated more with pitta imbalance (the heat element). Any activity that increases the fire or heat element in the body aggravates pitta and can lead to skin problems.

Ayurveda states that sluggish liver (dysfunction of the liver) associated with doshic imbalance causes skin diseases. The accumulation of toxins (ama) in the liver breaks out through the skin.
