Ayurveda defines beauty as “subhanga karanam” which means transforming all aspects of your body, mind, and soul to the highest level of auspiciousness.
Ayurveda revolves around the concept of tridoshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. It is believed that the balance of these doshas helps in leading a healthy life which reflects on the appearance and skin of the body. First, we have to analyze the skin type, then we can choose the correct line of treatment to balance the vitiated doshas.
3 basic skin types of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
Vata skin is light, dry, and cool. Vata skin tends to wrinkle as it ages, sensitive to mental stress which tends to show up in a tired stressed look.
Pitta skin is more fair or rosy in color, soft, warm to touch. They may suffer from acne, rashes, breakouts, etc.
Kapha skin is cool to touch, thicker, softer, oily, and smoother than others. They form wrinkles very late in life. They may get pimples blackheads, moist type of eczema, and water retention.
For vata skin
Because the skin is very dry, moisturize the skin every night before going to bed after removing the makeup.
Aloe vera juice is a natural moisturizer.
*Keep the skin moisturized from the inside by drinking at least 8 glasses of water in a day and eating plenty of sweet juicy fruits and avoid drying foods such as crackers
*Get to bed early and wake up early in the morning
*Daily abhyanga or oil massage to moisturize the entire body
*We provide special medicinal Oil massage and special herbal fascial according to the skin type to moisture and clear the skin.
For pitta skin
*Treatment should focus on calming your sensitive skin.
*Stay away from sunlight
*Avoid hot, spicy foods and include sweet bitter and astringent tastes more to your diet
For kapha skin
*Proper cleansing is the most important thing in Kapha skin
*Avoid oily and heavy food
*Eat light, astringent and bitter foods.
If the skin is dry and sensitive it is considered as Vata Pitta skin
If the skin is oily and sensitive it is kapha pitta skin. So the treatment varies according to the dosha predominance.

Role of spices in beauty treatment
Ayurveda recommends spices in cooking because they aid digestion which helps overall health and is especially helpful in detoxifying and nourishing the skin.
Turmeric is a best friend of skin, it purifies the deeper layers of skin and it’s also an antioxidant. Cumin, fenugreek, pepper, and turmeric purify the blood and fat tissue.
Eat plenty of proteins like mung bean dal, organic dairy products such as whole milk, paneer, and lassi, to nourish the skin which is good for all types of skin.
Sleep also plays an important role in maintaining youthful skin. Better to go to bed before 10 pm and wake before 6 am is the ideal time. Try to have dinner at least 2hrs before going to bed.
If somebody is struggling with sleep disorders will get great relief with ayurvedic relaxation treatments like head and foot massage with medicated oils and Sirodhara (warm medicated oil poured on the forehead along with head massage).
So, an exercise routine, stress-free living, and ample amount of sleep are equally important for glowing beautiful skin.
