Ayurveda Skin Care Guide

According to Ayurveda, every person has a dosha, which refers to biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. Doshas are also referred to as mind-body types and they express unique blends of physical, emotion and mental characteristics.

Your dosha also determines your skin type.

Ayurvedic skin care is based on the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, each related to a different skin type. Use the chart below to help determine your Ayurvedic Skin Type.
