What are DOSHAS?
Within the philosophy of the Ayurvedic approach, the doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment. There are three doshas in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The first dosha, Vata is made up of air and space elements. The second dosha, Pitta is made up of fire and water. The third dosha, Kapha is made up of water and earth. In terms of skin, a predominantly Vata dosha individual will experience dryness, premature aging and thinning of the skin. A predominantly Pitta dosha individaul will experience sensitivity, rosacea, acne and will have combination skin with a tendency towards inflammation. A predominantly Kapha dosha individual will experience oiliness, cysts, larger pores and/or blackheads. You can address any of these skin conditions with our WILD GRACE products that support and bring balance to your doshas. In addition, these DIY maks recipes will do wonders for your skin!
