The skin is regarded as the mirror of an individual’s inner health. It is the seat of sense organs and the senses of touch, pain, temperature, pressure are felt by it. Skin should be given due care and attention lest, it shall suffer from premature ageing, become dull and blemished. Ayurveda seem to be more promising in the field of dermatology. Ayurveda suggests Panchakarma for the treatment of skin disease. This is because detoxification of the body is very essential for the treatment of any skin disease.
