Understand the root-cause of your problem, and begin your personalized treatment today.
Everyone wants glowing skin but it’s not all that easy. The secret is to understand your Ayurvedic skin type. People can have a vata, kapha, pitta or a combination of the doshas as your Ayurvedic skin type.
Pitta skin type is sensitive. It has less tolerance for hot food and experiences more breakouts. It is reddish in colour and warm to the touch. It is also more prone to freckles and moles.
Use skin care products that provide sun protection, since pitta skin type needs both cooling and nurturing.
Avoid tanning treatments and therapies that damage your sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin is prone to breakouts so avoid using harsh, synthetic cosmetics that damage your skin.
Hot, spicy foods and deep-fried foods add heat to an already fiery constitution, so avoid too much of these foods.
Include sweet, juicy fruits in your diet to cool the body down.
Rose is cooling for the skin so you can use Rose Petal Water as a toner.
Use a cooling oil for daily massage.
Use cooling spices such as fennel (saunf) and liquorice (mulethi) in your cooking.
Protect your skin well using Cucumber Cream when you go out in the sun.
Cleanse and moisturize using gentle, natural and Ayurvedic skin care products.
Following these few steps and a pitta balancing diet will help you achieve a younger and more radiant skin!
