SkinVeda loosely translates to the “Science of Skin,” and that’s exactly the beauty of this skincare line. It infuses the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda (India’s age old medical science) to bring you hydrated, glowing skin. Ayurveda teaches that inner and outer beauty are closely interlinked. Meaning, once you balance your mind-body type or “dosha,” your skin will reflect that inner balance — creating a more radiant you!
According to Ayurveda, we are all born with our unique combination of elements a.k.a our “dosha,” and during our lifetime one or more elements may be out of balance. Once you learn your dosha and understand how to implement lifestyle changes and Ayurvedic practices into your daily routine, not only will you feeling better, but you will also be looking better.
The three doshas are Vata (associated with Air/Space), Pitta (connected with Fire) and Kapha (linked to Earth) and we all are made up of all three. However, depending on our parent’s makeup, our external environment as well as our internal environment one or more of these dosha’s can be thrown out of whack.
If there’s one season that throws the Vata dosha out of harmony, it’s Fall/Winter, when the temperature’s at it’s coldest and the wind is at it’s strongest.
Vata is the air type which means that skin can get terribly dry and flaky (especially during this season). SkinVeda’s Vata Dosha Kit was created to nourish and hydrate the dry-skin tendencies of a Vata. Created with organic healing oils and traditional Ayurvedic herbs, these 3 products are great for “dry season” or Fall/Winter (when our skin is the least hydrated).
The 3 products in the Vata Dosha Kit are:
- Curcuma-Narangi Gentle Foaming Cleanser- We all need to cleanse, but when your skin is extra dry, it needs a cleanser that will hydrate your skin at the same time (and not strip your skin of needed oils)! This foaming cleanser, made with an aloe vera base will get your skin fresh without leaving your skin dry or itchy. Turmeric and Calendula also work together to beat acne and reduce swelling, enhance your skin complexion and provide deep hydration.
- Narangi-Marigold Soothing Toner- Toning the skin with this product helps tighten pores and nourish the skin cells. The mineral complex in this toner has a triple action: 1. Active cleansing agent booster, 2. Cell energizing anti-free radical agent, 3. Encourages regeneration of the cells and combats free radicals. Made with Orange Blossom Oil that that acts as a natural stress reliever as well as a mild astringent. It also soothes redness and promoted healing with the properties of Marigold. This product works on many different levels and is a must-have for the Fall!
