  • Skin pigmentation is irregular skin colouring which can be caused by changes in the skin melanin, vascular changes, or growth of foreign organisms on the skin. According to Ayurveda there are three basic body energy principals in our body (vata, pitta and kapha). Pitta is composed of fire and water. There are five types of pitta & each responsible for a specific area of activity. Out of the five pittas one is known as Bhrajaka pitta present in the skin tissue, giving it colour, temperature and aura.
  • Environmental factors, life style and dietary habits imbalance the body pitta and aggravated pitta dosha creates skin related problems like pigmentation.
