Understanding Skin Types
Ayurvedic skincare treatments are based on skin types. According to the ancient science of Ayurveda, an individual’s skin type is based on the three doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water and earth)
A Vata-dominant individual has rough and dry skin that tends to wrinkle when not moisturised regularly.
Individuals with high pitta have a tendency to develop oily skin that is prone to rosacea and acne.
Kapha skin tends to be both oily and cold, making it more prone to whiteheads, pimples, and water retention.
