Everyone desires to have beautiful & radiant skin throughout the year, I mean, who doesn’t? But the sad part is that not everyone is born with flawless skin we all yearn for. Self-care takes time, patience and a lot of tests and trials until we find what works for our skin and soul. I’m sure we all can agree that we’ve all exhausted our savings and product trials to the max. But, have you tried something different from what you were doing all along? How about taking an organic and holistic approach to nip UR skin concerns in the bud!

The Ayurvedic Approach

Well, according to Ayurveda, all the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are involved either solely or work in combination when there are different skin or health conditions at play. What’s the connection between skin and dosha you ask? We find many people saying that their skin is extremely sensitive or oily and they just can’t use any product right off the shelf because it just didn’t work in the past or will in the future.

The Ayurvedic Doshas also help define what works for sensitive, dry & oily skin types by using natural remedies. This can work wonders when you know which dosha UR skin belongs to. If you don’t know which dosha then you can try taking our dosha quiz and know more about UR Prakriti, it’s skin characteristics and much more! Though every person has a unique blueprint, each dosha requires different treatment and attention. So, scroll down to know the ancient royal remedies for UR skin according to UR dosha!

What Happens When UR Dosha’s Are Imbalanced?
When your mind and body are in balance, it is much easier to make both of them feel better, and not just one or the other.
There are three primary doshic states:

  1. Balanced: All three doshas are present in their natural proportion
  2. Aggravated: A particular dosha is in excess
  3. Decreased: A particular dosha is depleted

Have you ever found that you can instinctively crave something green after a day of consuming too many sweets? That is UR body trying to balance itself naturally. If you find that you now feel sick after eating the same junky foods you used to consume without any issues all the time, then that’s a sign that you’re body is in balance; and it is trying to subconsciously ignore the foods that will throw you off balance. There are many foods and lifestyle choices, which can easily compromise UR dosha balance. This can affect any individual in many ways starting from skin concerns to serious health concerns, which is why it is even more important to know UR dosha.

Anyone who falls under the Kapha Prakriti usually has very clear, radiant and oily skin. When the Kapha is balanced, they are affectionate, sweet, calm, settled and have strong endurance. When the Kapha is imbalanced in the body, UR skin may start to develop large pores and blackheads.
