A clear, glowing and lustrous skin enhances the personality of an individual. Healthy skin is an indication of a healthy body. According to Ayurveda, the root cause of all skin problems is the unhealthy eating habits & unhealthy lifestyle of an individual. Healthy skin is a reflection of a healthy gut. Skin diseases cannot be treated by concentrating only on the external signs and symptoms, but can only be treated by removing its actual cause. As Ayurveda works on the root cause of the problems, we get many good results as far as skin diseases are concerned.
The root cause of skin problems
Ayurveda believes that the actual cause of skin disease is Unhealthy eating habits like eating too oily food, fried food, unctuous food, not eating according to your digestion, overeating, improper time of eating, too much fasting, too much alcohol, smoking etc. An unhealthy lifestyle can cause indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea etc. All these reasons are enough for a skin condition to happen. These unhealthy routines lead to accumulation of toxins in the body. These toxins circulate in our body & affect the weaker parts of the body producing signs for skin problem. This can also cause toxicity of the blood.
Stress and anxiety are another reason for unhealthy skin. Stress, anxiety and insomnia create toxicity and imbalance of mind.
Ayurveda has achieved results in many skin problems such as:

Eating a healthy diet, adopting a healthy lifestyle by including exercise, yoga & meditation can help one to overcome the signs of skin disease.
