Skin or Twacha, is the first organ that enables you to touch, feel and experience the world around you. It is one of the Panch indriyas (sense organs) that help you to feel and perform your daily activities with the help of it.
From an Ayurvedic perspective, the formation of skin is associated with the Rasa Dhatu (plasma) and Rakta Dhatu (blood) in the body. Proper nourishment and balance of these dhatus contribute to healthy and radiant skin.
Imbalances in the doshas or dhatus can lead to various skin disorders like acne, eczema, psoriasis, or dryness. In this blog, we will help you to know your skin and skin type better and a perfect regime that will help you get that glass skin glow in just a few steps, so let us begin.
Tridosha and its impact on the skin
Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine, classifies individuals based on their predominant Dosha—Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. Each Dosha type has unique characteristics and corresponding skincare needs.
Each of them is one by one as follows:
1. Vata Dosha Skin: The predominant elements or Mahabhutas in the Vata skin type are Air (Vayu)+Ether (Akasha).
This type of skin shows pre-mature ageing along with many other characteristics like:
Characteristics – Vata’s dominating skin is dry, uneven-toned, and prone to wrinkles and fine lines.
Ayurveda recommendations – As this skin type is dehydrated, it requires regular hydration and nourishment. You must introduce some healthy oils, for example, Sesame oil, Kumkumadi oil or other effective oils such as Charya Face Oil to keep your skin hydrated for a long time.
Skincare routine for Vata dominating skin type-
Step 1: Begin with cleansing your beautiful face with the goodness of natural herbs like Musta, Lodhra, Anantmoola, and many more with Charya Ubtan.
Step 2: Follow with a few drops of our hydrating Charya body and face oil to keep the skin hydrated all day long.
2. Pitta Dosha Skin: The predominant elements or Mahabhutas in the Pitta skin type are Fire(Agni) and water (Jala). This type of skin is very prone to sunburn and presents with freckles, beauty marks, greasy skin, acne and tanning.
Characteristics – Pitta dominating skin is warm, sensitive, intolerant to heat and presents with redness and freckles.
Ayurveda recommendations – Pitta skin type presents with warmth, redness and other related issues. It requires cooling agents to combat the concerns with Pitta skin type faces.
Skincare routine for Pitta dominating skin type-

Step 2: Hydrate your skin with the best Pitta balancing elixir, like “Ghrita” or clarified butter. It helps to keep your skin hydrated and helps to balance the Pitta dosha.
3. Kapha Dosha Skin: The predominant elements or Mahabhutas in the Kapha skin type are Water(Jala) and earth (Pruthvi). The oily skin type brings more acne and other skin issues. The oil present on the skin in the Kapha skin type brings all the dirt and pollution to your skin and clogs the skin pores.
Characteristics – The Kapha skin type presents with dullness, oil and excess sebum production.
Ayurveda recommendations – This skin type requires washing off the face at least twice a day to remove excess oil from the face. Regular exfoliation is the key to Kapha’s dominating skin type.
Skincare routine for Kapha dominating skin type –
Step 1: Wash your face with a chemical-free and 100% natural soft cleanser.
Step 2: Gently scrub your skin by using honey or Charya Ayurvedic Ubtan to slough off the dead tissues present on the skin.
