Ayurvedic Skin Type: Find Your Dosha

Page 1 of 11

Ayurveda has a very different approach to skin care from modern medicine. Rather than using topical agents alone like creams, lotions and oils, ayurveda treats the underlying skin problem at its root. In ayurveda, the ancient medical system of India, the cause of skin conditions is thought to be due to a dosha imbalance. A dosha is your mind-body type. If you know your dosha, you can take steps to prevent skin problems before they even begin. There are three doshas in ayurveda: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Take this quiz to determine your dosha and get the solutions for your skin.
