The skin is the largest detoxification organ of the body. If you look at the skin through a microscope you see a zillion little nerves. Each nerve is connected to a muscle. Think about when you get goose bumps and you see the hair on your skin stand up. The skin is the doorway of the body for communication.
Brajaka Pitta is the sanskrit term in ayurvedic science for the functioning of the skin in the role of the bodys’ physiology. The skin is the cream that comes to top. The part that the farmer converts to whip cream for your favorite pie. There are different types of skin:(lips), conjuntiva (eye), epidermis(nose) each need different daily care.
Pigmentation cells give skin its color. These cells play a role in maintaining skin color and tone, regulating blood flow, regulating body temperature, stimulating sweat glands to perspire, transferring message from the the outside skinto inside to the organs called transdermal relay. Skin absorbs, digest and assimilate any sound, feeling, cream, lotion or oil.
Some of the health conditions that point to imbalances of Brajaka Pitta are: dry skin caused by a nervous over stimulation imbalance, Acne caused by a digestive disorder leading to a vicious cycle of pollution in the body not being able to be handled by the skin ‘detoxification. Thick skin caused by accumulation of nerve tension and tissue accumulation, psoriasis caused by nerves.
Too much anxiety, stress, emotional tension will age the skin. Being touched by the one you love or the one you fear is digested by the skin.
