 What should be 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, optimising energy, emotional balance, sleeping pattern and treating the whole individual according to their body constitution. “Ayurveda considers 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). 

Ayurveda Restore Your Natural Radiance from Within

Beauty is not in a potion or in a magic pill. Everyone is beautiful in his or her own way – you just need a little natural touch and here comes the role of Ayurvedic care. The face is one of the most important areas that you need to take care of because all five senses are located here. As 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.


What is Ayurveda Dosha?

Ayurveda looks at 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 skin is determined by a person’s Dosha, which is the energy believed to circulate in the body. Skin care is personalised 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)


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

Vata Skin type – Thin, dry, delicate, prone to fine lines and wrinkles, uneven and fine pores. If this dosha is imbalanced, it tends to lose its plumpness and show signs of aging.

Day regime

  • Face Wash Cream based or non-foaming cleanser to remove dirt and dead skin.
  • Serum Vitamin C rich or Multivitamin Serum, should be cream based.
  • Moisturize – Use light and cream based to hydrate the skin. You can use Collagen cream or or Age combat cream (It has retinol, hyaluronic acid and Vit A which works on your fine lines and aging signs)
  • Sunscreen– SPF more than 40 for protection even when you are at home.

Night Regime

Pitta Skin type- It is extremely sensitive, soft, warm and of medium thickness. Their body type is less tolerant of hot and spicy foods. When out of balance, this skin type can flare up with breakouts, rosacea, a sunburn, acne and pigmentation

Day Regime

  • Cleanser – Mild cleanser and it can/cannot be medicated, follow with cream-based serum- B3 Glow forever for best results.
  • MoisturizerCollagen cream followed by Spf (40+). 
  • Pitta skin type needs sun protection to stay balanced. Cooling and healing herbs like Aloe Vera, Rose and Jasmine help soothe and nurture the skin as well. You can also apply these herbs on skin mixed in ubtan or chandan

Night Regime

  • Clean your face and apply Glow forever serum on face and Eye revive around your eyes and leave it.

Kapha Dosha- It is oily, dull, thick, has a tendency of enlarged pores. If imbalanced it causes hormonal acne. Since their skin is oily, it attracts more impurities from the environment.

Day care

  • CleanserSalicylic based or gel based cleansers are best suitable for Kapha Dosha skin types
  • Moisturiser– Use gel based and oil free moisturiser followed by Sunscreen which should be gel based spf (40+)

Night Regime

  • Cleanser again to clean your face. Followed by B3 Glow forever serum enriched with Zinc that helps to cover up the pores.

Important tip for all skin types – Never forget the under-eye area! Use Eye revive cream by G-Leuhr, every night before applying your moisturizer. Take a small amount and lightly dab it under and around the area, with your ring finger.

#EssentialTip: Use  G-Leuhr Wheatgrass and Veggie herbs to enhance your nutrient absorption. These herbs are high in antioxidants which reduces aging signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, and boost collagen production resulting in firming up your skin for a more youthful and glowing look.

Alongside these external skin manifestations, however, there are many other holistic factors that will align you more closely with one dosha than another, and based on that what we should eat in our diet to balance our energies and skin problems from within. This we will cover up next week.
