DIY Ayurvedic Skincare

Have you been thinking of a beauty session at home? This is where do-it-yourself-day-spa indulgence meets the depth and beauty of the Ayurvedic wellness tradition. 

Ayurveda places us in three different categories called doshas. If your dosha is out of balance, ailments persist. The main goal of Ayurveda is to balance your dosha. With knowledge of your dosha, you can make personalized choices that directly benefit your overall health. So what’s your dosha? Check out our latest blog Discovering Your Dosha.

There are a few signs that will help you to determine your dosha based on your usual skin type:

Vata

Characteristics: Thin, delicate, and almost transparent. Prone to dryness, flakiness, dark spots, and premature fine lines and wrinkles. Usually does not have clogged pores. You may also have dark under eye circles.

Overall: You are normal to dry.

 

Pitta

Characteristics: Clear and radiant, but can occasionally be irritated and red. Easily sunburned. May have freckles and moles. At risk for sensitive skin and oily skin. May have congested pores in the T-zone.

Overall: You have combination, sensitive skin.

 

Kapha

Characteristics: Few to no wrinkles for you! You have smooth, moist skin, but that means you may also have large pores and oiliness. Prone to oily skin, blocked pores, and dull or pale skin. You may also have puffy eyes, and suffer from rashes.

Overall: You are normal to oily.

 

These skin-loving recipes are fun and easy to whip up.
