Understanding Your Skin Type with Ayurveda

Your skin, according to Ayurveda, is a reflection of your internal energies and can give you hints about how harmoniously or discordantly your body and mind are functioning. Additionally, by becoming more aware of your skin type, you can efficiently provide it with the inside-out nourishment it requires. At Reshmona Vedic, we have developed a whole skincare range taking into account the particularities of your constitutional makeup. Every one of our products has high-potency plant medicine added to it, which will leave your skin glowing, nourished, and balanced. 


One or two doshas will predominate, and their characteristics will reflect your skin depending on your genetics and lifestyle. If your airy Vata dosha, for instance, predominates, your skin may be dry, sensitive, and chilly to the touch. A Pitta dosha person will have reddish, warm, and slightly oily skin. Firm, greasy, and chilly to the touch skin results from an earthier Kapha dosha.


Ayurvedic medicine teaches that using chemicals that are opposite or harmonizing to your dosha will result in good skin.


Discover Your Dosha With Ayurveda’s Guide To Your Skin


Ayurveda helps you understand your skin better by identifying the imbalance of particular doshas in your body, specifically Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.


Vata Skin

Combining the components of air and space, Vatta skin is typically dry to the touch and has a thin epidermis. The general traits may vary, but individuals with this skin type typically exhibit a calming, cool tone and have skin that easily hydrates with minimal water retention. People with frequently thin skin are prone to aging symptoms like wrinkles and fine lines, but they also often possess less acne and the desired delicate porcelain appearance.


Pitta Skin

It is extremely sensitive to the outside environment and is based on the fire element. More breakouts than any other skin type are caused by this sensitivity, which also makes the skin more prone to acne. It is typically warm to the touch, highly susceptible to scarring, and extremely sensitive to spicy meals. Pitta skin is consequently sensitive to the sun and prone to inflammation, irritation, acne, and redness. Pitta skin is considered to have a warm glow and is frequently fair with freckles and/or moles. 


Kapha Skin

This skin type is the most resilient of all skin types and tends to have more melanin to balance out the sensitivity. It is characterized primarily by the qualities of elements like earth and water. The skin of a Kapha person can produce a lot of sweat, oil, and grease, but it also protects against sunburn and heals more quickly than other types of skin. Because of this, people with Kapha skin may be more prone to cystic acne, but they also benefit from having thick, velvety skin, which helps postpone the onset of aging and keeps their young glow for longer. In order to avoid breakouts, plugged pores, and fungal infections, it is beneficial to cleanse extremely frequently for Kapha persons who may experience water retention and excess oil.


Combination of Skin

A few skin types frequently combine the aforementioned doshas, and an Ayurvedic practitioner can quickly identify the imbalance. Based on the nature of your skin, you may have a combination of a dry and sensitive Vatta-Pitta imbalance, an oily and sensitive Kapha-Pitta imbalance, or a combination of dry and oily areas on your skin due to a Vata-Kapha imbalance.
