IDENTIFY YOUR SKIN TYPE
Skincare treatments are decided based on skin type. A person's skin type is determined based on the three doshas. Doshas are bioenergetic or life forces that make up the constitution of the body and mind. “Vata” is wind, “Pitta” is fire & “Kapha” is water and earth.
Will have dry and rough skin that regularly wrinkles if not moisturised. Vata-type skin has fewer fat deposits and needs more moisturising, both externally and internally.
Using oil-based moisturisers on the skin and consuming warm spices like ginger. Also, an ancient Indian herb, ashwagandha, reduces skin dryness By applying this herb to face masks or balms.
People with a pitta nature tend to have oily skin prone to rosacea and acne. Therefore, they require more cooling agents like aloe vera sandal masks on their skin. To keep the skin calm, reduce acne.
Kapha skin types tend to be cold and oily and may be prone to pimples, whiteheads, and water retention. Dry brushing removes obstructions and stimulates the lymphatics system with lymph massaging tools and exfoliations. Also, avoiding oil-based creams and applying face masks regularly will help.
