Abstract

PERIORBITAL HYPERPIGMENTATION & AYURVEDA: A REVIEW

Dr. Anuradha*

ABSTRACT

The term “lifestyle” is often used to denote the way people live, reflecting a whole range of social values, attitude and activities. The ever changing life style has exposed men to various disorders. Periorbitalhyperpigmentation (POH) or "dark circles under the eyes" is one of them. This aesthetic facial concernis defined as bilateral, homogeneous hyperchromicmacules and patches primarily involving the lower eyelids but also sometimes extending towards the upper eyelids, eyebrows, malar regions, temporal regions and lateral nasal root. POH has not been described directly in Ayurvedic classics but as per its signs and symptoms it can be deduced that it occurs due to vitiation of Vata and Pittadoshas. Various treatments proposed in modern medicine for POH tend to give temporary relief only. Kriyakalpasmainly Vidalaka and Akshitarpana told in ayurvedic texts are found very helpful in the management of POH. This paper highlights the mode of action of drugs and kriyakalpas in the management of POH.

Keywords: Akshitarpana, vidalaka, kriyakalpa, aesthetic facial concern.
