In order to be able to improve your exterior looks you must first know what lies down below the surface and this article based on the Ayurveda skin care general knowledge will show you the way around this topic.
To start your journey through the wellness of Ayurveda India has transcended to the whole world, you should be adjourned according to the modern science.
Primarily one should note that the human skin is made out of two main layers, the outer hard skin layer known as the ‘Epidermis’ and the more delicate inner layer, the ‘Dermis’.
So to be able to tend to the Ayurveda treatments and products in the best manner we are going to explain even better these layers of the skin.
The Epidermis consists mainly of flat cells, but let us explore the cell story all the way, so we can understand both layers.
The smallest cells start as ‘Basal’ cells and are pressed by the cells already in the skin once they are formed.
These ‘Basal’ cells are forced into shape shifting until they become ‘Squamous’ cells serving as connective cells, another cell name commonly used in the Ayurveda therapy's references.
‘Squamous’ cells’ work is to reach the outer core of the skin replacing the old dry ones that shed along the time.
Other particular cells within the skin are the ‘Melanocytes’ which correspond to the skin's color (see Ayurveda body type information for more about these cells).
Once formed these cells make the ‘melanin’ used by the epidermal cells that produce the actual skin pigmentation.
Decrease of the said ‘melanin’ will result even in grey and subsequently white hair, such episodes, together with loss of skin color normally occur by aging. Many different herbal products are intended for faster reproduction of these cells.
Having an overlook in simple words, the outer skin of dead cells taking about 26days for the ‘Basal’ cells to mature and reach this level thus replacing the epidermis in the average of days mentioned.
A natural herbal remedy and herbal treatments to regulate or accelerate the process are both present within Ayurveda's culture.
