Do you know why we fail to achieve healthy skin even after using various expensive skincare products?

Well, most cosmetic skincare products that are sold in the market, target the outer skin issues. You may derive benefits from these products, but the solution is short-lived. Whereas, Ayurveda finds the root cause of a skin issue. Ayurveda defines skin issues with Doshas. Every skin type is different and can be defined under the three Doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

It is believed if our internal body maintains an equilibrium with nature then the harmony will be visible on our skin. Therefore, we get healthy glowing skin from within with Ayurveda and the solution is long-lived.

 

How skin type is defined by Dosha in Ayurveda?

While, in the skincare industry, you can come across skin definitions such as acne-prone skin, oily skin, etc. Whereas skin treatment in Ayurveda is defined by Doshas.

Vata Dosha – Thin and delicate skin that can be extremely drying. It is prone to wrinkles, fine lines, and fine pores.

Pitta Dosha – Mostly sensitive skin which frequently develops breakouts. Pitta Dosha can lead to oily skin which can even develop rashes.

Kapha Dosha- Oily skin with large pores with blackheads. Kapha Dosha leads to pimples which can turn to skin eczema as well.

  1. Practice yoga for naturally glowing skin-The two facets of wellness is Ayurveda and Yoga. The inter-relation between the two is inevitable. While you practice yoga like pranayama, it detoxifies your body, improves blood circulation, builds up the immune system, and much more. Practicing daily yoga and meditation will help you find an equilibrium with yourself and thus give you a healthy mind and body.
  2. Healthy food for a healthy skin-Our diet plays an important role to make or break our skin. Food is one of the main factors which cause most of the Doshas in our body, therefore healthy and mindful eating is a must. You must include healthy food such as Ghee, coconut oil, dairy products, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, animal protein, and seasonal fruits in your diet. However, the best diet for glowing skin can be determined after a skillful examination of specific body types and Doshas.

Revised lifestyle- Lifestyle has a great stake in your overall health when it comes to Ayurveda. It is beneficial to maintain a simple daily routine, drink sufficient water, eat healthily, indulge in daily exercise, execute a healthy diet, and catch undisturbed sleep. Detoxifying your body often helps to get rid of toxins and gives you healthy glowing skin.
