The wrist portion of any human is constantly doing some or the other work and is in constant activation. The pulse in the wrist is checked for all sorts of ailments. The constant friction created in the wrist region by the bangles increases the blood circulation level. The circular shape of the bangles, traps the body’s energy and prevents it from escaping.

Sticker bindis and threads are commonly implicated in the causation of allergic dermatitis as they contain mild irritants and cause contact dermatitis on sensitive skin. Getting rid of them is often found to be helpful for people with sensitive skin.

Apart from lending color to the hands and feet, Henna cools the body down and helps sooth the nerves and reduce stress. It is significant during the wedding seasons, as the stress levels are commonly running high during the wedding season.

Skin or ear piercing without aseptic precautions for earrings can be harmful as it may lead to skin infections, bloodborne diseases or allergic reactions if not done professionally.

Between the eyebrows lies a major nerve point, which is pressed every time a person applies kum kum. The red kum kum also helps retain energy in the body and helps control various levels of concentration.
It also helps facilitate the blood supply to the face muscles.

As per Yoga, the place where women put on their bindi is known as the Ajna Chakra, which is known as the sixth and most powerful chakra in the human body. And pressing this point multiple times a day while applying bindi has several health and skin benefits.

5. Toe Rings

A particular nerve passes through the second toe, from the uterus to the heart. Wearing a toe ring in the second finger may strengthen the uterus, keeping it healthy by regulating the blood flow to it and regularizing the menstrual cycle. Toe rings are generally made of silver which, being a good conductor, absorbs polar energies and passes them on to the body.
