“Fountain of Youth” is a spring that existed in tales and was believed to restore youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its water. These tales make one wonder, how much youth was always coveted. The skin being the first indicator of youth, much has been searched, researched and sought to protect, preserve and restore it.
How and why skin differs?
The three elementary substances or energies (doshas) determine one’s skin type. The vata constitution has dry, thin, rough, cold or wrinkled skin. The individuals with pitta constitution have delicate, fair skin. Kapha skin is oily, smooth, moist and sometimes with large pores. The imbalance of any of the three energies (tridosha) in the body results in skin ailments.
What goes in, shows in skin
Following the diet according to one’s body constitution and balancing tridosha goes far. Avoiding oily, spicy, very sour, excessive salty or acidic food and caffeinated or aerated drinks suppress pitta dosha.
