What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. Derived from its ancient Sanskrit roots – ‘ayur’ (life) and ‘veda’ (knowledge) – and offering a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life, its origins go back nearly 5000 years.

The main source of knowledge in this field remain the Vedas, the divine books of knowledge the Rishis (Indian sages) propounded, and more specifically the fourth of the series, namely Atharvavedathat dates back to around 1000 BC.

The 3 Ayurvedic Skin Types

 

 

Vata

The Vata skin type may be described by skin that is generally dry, thin, delicate and cool to the touch. It is extremely vulnerable to weather conditions, especially dry windy weather and is easily dehydrated. Vata skin may age faster and tends to be dry, rough and flaky when out of balance.
Skin care Suggestions:
Your skin needs to be moisturized. Use products with essential oils that nurture the skin and rehydrate it to prevent wrinkles and premature aging.

Pitta

Those with Pitta skin have fair, sensitive, soft, warm skin of medium thickness. It is also more susceptible to freckles and moles. When out of balance, Pitta skin can erupt in rashes, acne, or sunspots.
Skin care Suggestions:
Your skin needs both cooling and nurturing. Use skin care products that protect you from the harmful sun rays.

Kapha

With all the qualities of water and earth, kapha skin is oily, thick, pale, soft, cool and more tolerant of the sun. It tends to age slower and form less wrinkles than the other two types. Those with this skin type may be faced with problems of dull complexion, enlarged pores, excessive oil, blackheads, and pimples, moist types of eczema and water retention. 
Skin care Suggestions:
Your skin needs to breathe. Cleanse your skin from within by scrubbing and exfoliating regularly to remove toxins.
