Cosmetology in Ayurveda
Renu Bala*, Dolly Thakur, Anju Lata, Richa Guleria
The Cosmetic approach in Ayurveda is related to the healthy status of the body as well as the mind. More precisely, it can be said that physical, mental and spiritual Beauty as a combined unit projects the Cosmetic sense of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is not only the science of medicines, but it is the science of the life and such all the facts of life are dealt with in Ayurveda. Skin is called the cream of Rasa, but actually Rasa, Rakta and Mamsa Dhatus have to be in good condition to produce beautiful skin. Examining the Upadhatus and Malas can also prove useful in finding which of the Dhatu needs attention. Ayurveda strongly stresses that elimination of wastes is important for the health and beauty of the body. It is Agni that has the power to digest food well, making all nutrients available to the tissues. There is a concept of dinacharya and ritucharya also to maintaining the healthy life.
