Does your dry skin beat all your skincare measures? If so, you better go for skin ayurvedic treatment Experts say that it is the oil glands found under the skin which produce sufficient moisture to keep our skin soft and smooth. But there will be many instances in which the glands fail to produce enough lubrication. The exposure to extreme weather, genetic factors, nutritional deficiencies etc are some factors which cripple the skin glands from supplying enough moisture. Aging too makes the skin lose its capacity to retain moisture. According to Ayurveda, the cause of dry skin is an increase in vata dosha. Such an increase can be caused by many factors such as extreme cold and dry climate, irregular food habits etc. Fatigue of body and mind can also be another reason. Ayurveda has come up with a lot of remedies for dry skin. A herbal body massage with oil, especially with sesame oil and a proper nutritional diet help in retaining the moisture of the skin and thus make it smooth and shiny. Another major herb that helps in keeping the skin normal and shiny is nothing but Aloe Vera. The medicines or creams made of Aloe Vera too can be used for skin treatment. Consuming anti-oxidants also will help in retaining the smoothness of the skin.
