Hair and Skincare in PCOS

Optimal hair and skin texture can tell much more about a woman than her beauty. They represent a woman’s reproductive health and regular period cycles.

This also means that if a woman has irregular periods or poor reproductive health, her hair and skin texture can reflect her condition even before taking diagnostic tests.

The Primary Cause of Hair and Skin Problems

Poor nutrient absorption by the skin and hair cells leads to the problem. However, it isn’t the root cause of the problem. The problems begin with excess Ama reaching the hair and skin cells and blocking the nutrient absorption channels.

An imbalance in the female reproductive hormones is another reason for the problem. Oestrogen and progesterone are two important hormones produced in the ovaries. These hormones help in the formation of the eggs and timely ovulation. However, when Ama blocks the ovary channels, the production of these hormones gets affected, causing the problem.

When the secretion of female hormones in the ovaries goes down, the production of male sex hormones like testosterone increases. This hormone can cause problems like male pattern baldness, facial hair growth, rough skin, and lacklustre hair.

Incorrect Approach to Solve the Problem

When women notice hair and skin problems, their primary concern is to hide them. These issues affect their appearance and beauty. Hence, their main focus is to deal with these issues urgently.

They try their hands on the popularly advertised measures like spa, oils, serums, facials, laser and skin treatments.

Most women never consider it to be something related to their reproductive health. However, that’s the big mistake made by them. No matter how hard they try, these issues will keep haunting them until they don’t treat their PCOS. Treatment of PCOS from its root is the only permanent solution to these problems.

Solving Hair and Skin Problems in PCOS

Hair and skin problems are not standalone issues. These problems are consequences of excess Ama in the ovaries and hormonal imbalance.

Laser treatments or beauty parlour visits can’t provide permanent relief. They might offer temporary relief from social stigmas and boost your confidence. However, these measures are expensive and short-lived. The more you depend on these treatments, the regrowth will be faster.

Dealing with PCOS is the only permanent solution to hair and skin problems. You must focus on the root cause of the problems and not just the signs and symptoms.

As you can see, focusing on the following 3 areas is important:

  • Ama Removal
  • Lower Male Hormone Production
  • Balancing Oestrogen and Progesterone

Ama Removal

  • Haritaki: It is a miraculous detoxifier. It has a very important role in improving metabolism and toxin removal. It is full of antioxidants, providing necessary nutrients for better skin and hair health.
  • Pippali: This aromatic Ayurvedic herb plays an important role in Ama removal. It aids digestion and metabolism. It has strong anti-ageing properties that will help you fight off skin and hair problems.

Lower Male Hormone Production

  • Kanchnar: This is a very valuable herb for treating PCOS. It stimulates hormonal balance and restores the menstrual cycle in women. Regular periods lower male hormone production bringing down male-pattern hair growth.
  • Varuna: This Ayurvedic herb plays a crucial role in clearing the ovary channels and reducing the size of ovarian cysts. It helps in regulating the menstrual cycle and bringing the hormonal balance back.

Balancing Oestrogen and Progesterone

  • Aloe Vera: This is an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory herb. It plays a crucial role in balancing your hormones to a natural level. It helps by restoring the hormone levels from within.
  • Krishna Jeeraka: This herb has amazing medicinal and aromatic properties. It promotes lustrous hair growth. It can also improve skin tone and treat acne, scars, and dark spots.

Take Away

Hair and skin problems can result in low confidence and poor morale in women. They start feeling inferior to others despite their immense potential. Spending enormous amounts to cure these problems in desperation isn’t the solution. If you want a permanent solution to the problem, understanding and addressing the root cause is important.
