Ayurveda is a traditional form of alternative medicine that has been widely used for the past 3000 years. Mainly made of natural extracts of plants and herbs, this form of medicine has no side effects and results in holistic healing. It will be a myth to think that Ayurveda is obsolete now. It is very much in practice and the various combinations of ingredients are used for health and beauty. 

A plethora of Skin-care products 

Ayurveda encompasses balancing the three doshas namely the vata, kapha, and pitta. So, all the ayurvedic beauty products are dosha-specific and targeted to a particular skin type. Based on this scientific theory, you will come across a lot of ayurvedic skincare products. From facial masks, serums, and ubtans to facials and beauty therapies, all these herbal formulations make the skin glow, clean, and look flawless. By using this, you will stay away from the harsh impacts of chemicals and parabens. 

The Doshas and skin types 

According to the Ayurvedic tradition, a vata-dominant person usually has rough and dry skin. The skin is prone to wrinkles and age lines. So, the ayurvedic products meant for this type of skin should have natural moisturizing elements like honey, ashwagandha, milk, and essential oils. 

People with high pitta dosh are known for their immensely oily skin. The facial area, especially the T-zone tends to be super oily resulting in acne and pimples. Products with cooling and oil-control elements like sandalwood, and aloe vera are ideal for them. Ayurvedic products even use turmeric for pitta-specific people as it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. 

Kapaha skin is also oily. Along with oil secretion, it also has water retention and is prone to whiteheads and pimples. Aloe vera, multani mitti, and sandalwood are the best ingredients for them.
