According to ayurveda skin has seven layers . When imbalanced doshas affect these layers different type of skin diseases arise. Doshas may get imbalanced in body and locally on skin.
Vata dosha is dominant in skin . The qualities of vata dosha are Cold, Light, Dry, Rough, Hard and Mobililty.

Accumulation of toxins in body which affect the skin:
The inner physiological processes like digestion, metabolism, elimination of waste products etc directly affect the beauty of skin.
The process of digestion is carried out by agni or fire which is present in our digestive system.
(Agni is the body fire, which is responsible for transformation of one substance to another. It breaks down the food substances, eliminates toxins and wastes, maintains body temperature, and resists the invasion of microbes by maintaining strong body immunity.
The body fire, which is assisted by balanced doshas, digests the food completely to form Pakwa Anna rasa (the liquid form of food which is completely digested by digestive enzymes), which is ready to get absorbed by body tissues. According to ayurveda Pakwa Anna Rasa nourishes the body and its components to keep the body devoid of diseases. But when body fire is impaired there will be an incomplete digestion of food forming Apakwa Rasa (indigested food). The indigested food fails to nourish the body components leading to lowered body resistance. Due to indigestion toxins start accumulating in body.)
An unhealthy diet and life style imbalance doshas and the imbalanced doshas impair agni. Due to impaired agni toxins accumulate in body. These accumulated toxins affect the health of skin and the skin loses its luster and glow, acne and pimples start appearing, wrinkling of skin starts in an early age. Hence a well nourished diet, a healthy life style and regular detoxification is very important to keep our skin healthy.
