Twak Sara Purusha Lakshanas mean ‘signs of person who has richness of skin health’. Skin is a representation of richness of rasa tissue. Rasa Dhatu is the first tissue to be formed from the nutritional juices, after food digestion. Subsequently other tissues are formed from Rasa Dhatu.
Rasa dhatu and skin are closely related. The richness or deficiency of plasma / lymph is reflected on the skin. Therefore Rasa sara is known as Twak Sara.
