Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient system of health and living whose origins go back 5000 years when the Vedas were written. Vedas are the most ancient depository of human knowledge- the foundations for many of the eastern arts and sciences. Considered as an upaveda (branch) of Atharvaveda, Ayurveda- which literally means the knowledge of life in Sanskrit- teaches us on living a healthy, happy and balanced life.

वायु: पित्तं कफश्चोक्त : शारीरो दोशासंग्रह :
मानस : पुनारुद्द्धिष्टो रजश्च तम एव च ।।
~ चरक सम्हिता/ सुत्रस्थान ९/१४

Ayurveda believes we are composed of the same elements that make up the universe- Prithvi (Earth), Tej (Fire), Jala (Water), Vayu (Air) and Akash (Space or Ether). These elements manifest in us in the form of three doshas- namely Vaata (Air and Space), Pitta (Fire and Water) and Kapha (Water and Earth). Our Prakriti- the natural healthy state- is the doshas we are born with (most are dominated with either one or two doshas); when our doshas get vitiated, we end up in the state of Vikruti (Imbalance.) Ayurveda provides us with a system to keep our doshas in balance to achieve a healthy life.

  • Vaata

    Dry, thin, cool, sensitive to touch, prone to get wrinkles fast, and easily dehydrated.
    So hydrating, moisturizing and nourishing products are recommended for this skin type.

  • Pitta

    Oily, hot, prone to pimples, freckles, moles and rashes.
    Cooling and gentle products are recommended for this skin type.

  • Kapha

    Sticky, thick, cool, wrinkles late, prone to pimples and dullness of skin.
    Products with scraping and deep cleansing action are recommended for this skin type.
