The monsoon season or Varsha Ritu is one that everyone looks forward to. However, more often than not, it brings with it various illnesses and diseases that cause imbalance in your body if you don’t take proper measures to prevent them. One of the oldest and perhaps the most advanced and widespread medical practices today, Ayurveda is a science of life that is said to cure illnesses by directly treating their root cause. According to Ayurveda (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge), Varsha Ritucharya is a way of life that one needs to follow daily and create a lifestyle to maintain a good, healthy balance and boost immunity especially during monsoons. One of the basic fundamentals of Ayurveda is to maintain health by preventing an illness or disease.
In this season, it is quite possible that the Vata and Pitta doshas are aggravated which can reflect on your skin as well. Certain modifications to your daily routine, however, can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle which will help bring an equilibrium in the Vata and Pitta doshas.

The incessant rains during monsoons causes a drop in the immunity level within one’s body. This drop invites possible illnesses and infections that will definitely bog you down in the already gloomy weather.
There are however some lifestyle tips that you can follow that can help you get rid of skin problems on your face.
The systematic functioning of the human body is paramount especially during monsoons. According to the science of Ayurveda, ‘Agni’ controls the digestive and metabolic activities of the body. However, during the monsoon season, Agni that controls these activities within your body is weak due to the aggravation of the Pitta dosha which leads to various skin problems and infections. So, what healthy foods can you eat in the monsoon to combat the effects of an aggravated Pitta dosha? Although you should maintain a healthy diet all throughout the year, maintaining one in the rains is prime. The diet you choose should balance the deformed doshas and trigger ‘Agni’ to perform its part.
Here are a few simple tips and guidelines recommended by Ayurveda that you should follow to keep your skin clear of infections.
