Be Beautiful, Naturally

Skin, the largest organ of the body, is commonly categorized as dry, oily skin and sensitive skin. Most people fall under one of these categories and majority of us have skin problems which we deal with accordingly. But Ayurveda doesn’t differentiate skin like that.



Ayurvedic way to choose beauty creams based on Skin type

Ayurveda has a very different take when it comes to skin care. Ayurveda talks about the different skin types on the basis of the Doshas or bodily constituents- Vata, Pitta and Kapha.


Young or Old, Everyone Seems to Have Skin Issues..

Youngsters have to deal with excess Sebum Production (Oil production), which ends up blocking the Skin Pores, resulting in Acne and eventually, Scars. As we age, the collagen production in our Skin takes quite a beating – that is the reason why enough new Skin Cells are not produced, which leads to Wrinkles, Sagging Skin and Dark Spots.

Know your skin type, this can solve and even prevent  your skin problems.


Find out what your skin type According to Ayurveda?

Notice the pores on the face. If you have small fine pores overall, then you mostly have a Vata skin. If you have enlarged pores all over the skin, then it might be Kapha skin. If there are enlarged pores mostly on the T-zone, then in most likelihood you have a Pitta skin.
