Skincare Routine Based on Ayurveda Doshas
“Ayurveda means ‘science of life or longevity’ in Sanskrit shows the benefits of balancing the whole body, supporting digestive health, optimizing energy, emotional balance, sleeping pattern, and treating the whole individual according to their body constitution. “Ayurvedaconsiders not just the person individually, but also the environment that they live in.
Simply put, it is a holistic approach to a healthier and longer life – the kind that our ancestors lived. It is based on three key concepts which are Nidana (the diagnostic measures), Ahar (food that acts as internal medicine), and Kaya Chikitsa (body treatment).

At Ayurvedic Healing is done with exotic herbs, foods that are pure, and beauty care that is natural and simple. Let us go deeper into Ayurvedic Doshas and its relation to skincare.
AYURVEDA IS A WHOLE NEW WAY OF LOOKING AT YOUR SKIN (THAT’S ACTUALLY ANCIENT)
What is Ayurveda Dosha?
Ayurveda looks at the skin differently. When it comes to skincare, the glow of a person’s skin is considered a reflection of their lifestyle. Also, the quality of the skin is determined by a person’s Dosha, which is the energy believed to circulate in the body. Skincare is personalized based on these doshas whether you chose home remedies or buy products.
What are the three Doshas?
The 3 doshas are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha and to restore skin health, we need to balance these doshas or energies.
. There are various factors that can throw a person out of balance such as stress, pollution, seasonal changes, hormonal imbalance, and so on. For a person to be healthy and glowing younger-looking skin, they need to balance their DOSHAS along with lifestyle (Diet, exercise, good sleep, and stress management)
