Ayurveda emphasizes the all-important value of good diet as it creates good quality nourishment. Rasa will nourish rakta and subsequently influence the skin. Ayurveda says that skin diseases occur primarily due to sluggish liver function which leads to 'pitta' and 'kapha' dosha dysfunction. Another vital factor that contributes to healthy appearance is the clean bowel. The hair is the metabolic end product of bone and marrow. Thus if the diet falls short of nourishing bones, the quality of hair is affected. Similarly stress and worry leads to unhealthy hair. Wholesome diet is necessary for good skin and hair. Ayurvedic skin and hair care products are formulated with this fact in view.
