As our bodies are unique and have individual characteristics, so does our skin. Our skin is affected by the type of Dosha we have and the combination of the elements within our bodies. I have listed the Doshas below and if you do not know your Dosha you can do an online quiz or read previous articles that I have explained the Doshas.
Vata- ( tends to tan easily, but is thin and so is prone to wrinkles and dry skin)
Outer- moisturize with oil.
Inner – beneficial to eat oils and butter

Oils: Jojoba, sesame, rose hip, avocado.
Pitta- ( warm to the touch, is sensitive and tends to be irritated easily)
Outer- smooth and protect with oil

Most of all remember to appreciate and love your body. It is a gift from Mother Earth to you. What you eat you shall become and so treat it with love and feel the love back:)
