Expert Talk: Kama Ayurveda’s Dr Sharad Kulkarni Shares Effective Ayurvedic Skincare Remedies For Anti-Ageing

1. How can Ayurveda specifically deal with ageing & its effect on the skin?

Among the many benefits of Ayurveda, the science helps remove toxins and impurities (abnormal Dosha) from the body, thereby helping deal with ageing and its effects on the skin. This is an effective approach because it works on you from the inside out.

2. Can you mention some ayurvedic herbs that one can specifically include in their skincare regime & diet to help deal with ageing?

Some Ayurvedic herbs that can be included in your skincare regime and diet to aid ageing, gracefully include amla, neem, lemon, rose, aloe vera and manjistha. Look out for these herbs in the food you eat and your skin and hair care products.

3. Is it true that an imbalance of the three gunas (dosha) can create skin problems?

The imbalance of the 3 doshas or gunas is, in fact, the root cause of all skin problems.  Balancing your doshas can help not just improve your skin, but your overall health in general.

4. What are some ayurvedic skin therapies that can help deal with the problem?

Some Ayurvedic skin therapies that can aid skincare problems include detoxification (panchakarma), applying a herbal face pack to the skin (mukhalepa), and oil pulling (gandusha).

5.  Is it true that Abhyanga or daily morning oil massage can help the skin remain young?

Yes, Abhyanga or daily morning oil massage most definitely helps the skin remain young. Oil helps moisturise and hydrate the skin, improving its elasticity which generally gets lower as you age. An oil massage will also boost circulation and help the blood flow well through the body, giving your skin a natural and healthy flush of colour.
