Effect of Ayurvedic oil for oil degree, moisture degree and pH on the skin of Ayurvedic three constitution
Gyeong Ran Lee, Chong Un Chung
This study analyzed the trends according to three constitutions including vata, pitta, and kapha, which is the classification of constitutions used in ayurveda by measuring the amount of water and oil and pH by part of the whole body of women in their 20's and 40's, and the result shows that there was no significant differences by the amount of oil, water, and constitution, and especially, in the case of the vata group, the amount of water and oil in the group was far higher than that of other constitutions. In the case of the vata group, the amount of oil was two times higher in inside of arms and outside of legs compared to that of other groups as well as far higher amount of oil in abdominal region. However, in terms of pH in each constitution, there is no significant difference, which supports the author's previous paper titled an Analysis of Skin Types according to Vata, Pitta and Kapha in Ayurveda. In addition, the changes between before and after experiments on the three groups demonstrate statistical significant differences of the amount of oil in the inside of arms and outside of legs and of the amount of oil in the abdominal region. The author hopes that such results become useful indexes to those who work in the field of skin care for whole body and expects that there will be more further studies on yoga, meditation, gem therapy, and color therapy, which are mentioned in ayurveda. Finally, the author wishes that these studies help people to enjoy more healthy and beautiful skin with full of confidence in their social life.
Key words: Ayurveda, Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Gem therapy
