How Ayurveda medicine helps your skin to be prettier


For Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine, nothing happens the same way for two people. Everything happens according to individual characteristics. The Ayurvedic medicine is, therefore, beyond all, a self-understand tool, in order to optimize everything according each physical and psychological type.


The archetypes proposed by Ayurveda are the Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. To know which Dosha is yours, is the first step to use the Ayurvedic medicine hollistic and plural approach. These three profiles are the five universe elements combined.


Vata: Air and Ether

Pitta: Fire and Water

Kapha: Earth and Water


The Ayurvedic biotype of someone can be, therefore, Vata, Pitta or Kapha, or even, perhaps, a combination of two of those doshas. Moreover, a person might born with a determined biotype and, as time goes by, it changes due to external factors such as, climate, diet, life habits or environmental pollution.


Such “distortions” should also be taken into consideration when choosing a skin care treatment, and this has got to be made through a dosha detailed research with a qualified professional.


Though, besides the professional orientations, it is possible to, indeed, take some care which is worth to each type of skin. Look at the advices:


  1. Bet on the vegetables


Always eat vegetables with high level of water, which are easier to digest, such as lettuce, carrot, cucumber, radish (known in Ayurveda for its purified properties), fennel and asparagus. Those vegetables are good for all sorts of skins. Combine at least three of them and eat with just olive oil and lime dressing, all natural, off course.

  1. Eat small portions


The traditional as well as the Ayurvedic medicine agree that adding seeds and nuts to your diet will improve your skin’s condition. You can add almonds, sunflower seeds and other nuts as well to your porridge, for instance, or have them as an afternoon break on their own.


  1. Always drink some tea
