Sara is unique concept illuminated in Ayurveda. It is core or excellence part of Dhatu (tissues). Sara Parikshana (Examination) is very important to rule out Bala (strength) of Dhatu. Skin is one of the largest organs of the body. Because of this, caring for skin can directly affect our overall health. Skin acts as a protective shield and is most vulnerable to outside elements. It?s affected by more factors than we may think. So it is necessary to take care of the skin. Dalhanacharya is described Rasasara as a Twakasara because of functions of the Rasa Dhatu is best carried out through Skin. Physical Characteristics of Twakasara is totally concerned with skin on body hair. Physical attractiveness creates a powerful first impression on the mind, so in fact that we may go much beyond looks and simply start generating assumptions about a person\'s success, status, parenting, and intelligence, even if they prove not to be true. To understand strength or weakness of our look, we need to acknowledge the power of first impressions i.e Twakasarata. It influences the way we see and treat others. Once an impression is entrenched, it takes a lot to change our attitude about a person. By virtue of Knowledge of skin and Twakasarata we would be able to maintain healthy status of the skin.
