Ayurveda Skin Types

Positively Pure….
Holistic Skin Care – Inspired by Ayurveda

Ayurveda and Your Skin

Ayurveda was one of the inspirations behind Sevani’s “special blend” of ingredients selected for our holistic skin care products. Ancient herbal extracts enriched with pure plant “life force” along with healing oils and botanicals are the foundation of Sevani Skin Care Formulas.

According to Ayurvedic principals, there are 3 constitutional Doshas (or types) – Vatta, Pitta and Kapha which are present in varying degrees within each person. Keeping these Doshas in balance is the key to the health and wellness of all the systems of the body, including the skin. The keys to keeping the Doshas in balance differs based on which is the predominant one for the individual.

Vatta (Air and Ether)

Those with a primarily Vatta dosha have skin that can be described as fine or delicate yet also dry and flaky. The skin is often thin and although these individuals are more susceptible to signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, they’re also blessed with less acne and often that fine porcelain look coveted by many. Those with a Vatta skin type are also usually prone to exczema and other skin irritations common to sensitive skin and are drawn to warmth and light. Hydration is essential for this skin type as is consistent application of antioxidants, creams and specific oils that soothe and protect. Select Sevani products were specifically formulated for this skin type. C+Resveratrol Anti Aging Elixir, Ageless Radiance Cleanser, Advanced Omega Night Repair Serum, Eye Repair creme with Neem, Phyto Peptide Creme and more…..

Pitta (Fire and Water)

Those with a dominant Pitta dosha are quite opposite of those with Vatta. Pitta craves coolness and is actually aggravated by heat. As a result, those with Pitta skin are easily sunburned and have problems with inflammation, irritation, redness, etc. Pitta skin is fair, often with freckles and/or moles, and is known to emit a warm glow. Pitta skin requires great care and is prone to conditions such as rosacea, pigmentation issues, rashes, and is quite sensitive overall. Support the Pitta skin type with skin care products that help reduce inflammation, sooth, and help prevent redness and rosacea. Sevani Ageless Radiance Cleanser, Advanced Complexion Corrector, Hyaluronic Wrinkle Defense, Rapid Renewal Resurfacing Creme and our soothing eye products address this delicate skin type to protect and repair.  Our sensitive skincare system would be ideal.

Kapha (Earth and Water)

Kapha skin is characterized by oiliness, large pores, and is often cool to the touch. As a result those with Kapha skin are often prone to acne and blackheads, but, also have the benefit of thicker skin which helps delay signs of aging along with skin that feels very soft to the touch. These individuals also often experience water retention too and, must cleanse very regularly to prevent breakouts as well as fungal infections. Ageless Radiance Refining Cleanser, Rapid Renewal Creme, Hyaluronic Wrinkle Defense and our Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique are balancing to this particular skin type.   Consider the Oily system or Age defense depending on your particular concerns.

Products for Your Ayurvedic Skin Type

Overall, you can be sure that regardless of your Ayurvedic skin type, skin care products with harsh chemicals and abrasives should not be used ever as they will only further imbalance the body. Instead natural non toxic skincare remedies, like the beauty products offered by Sevani, are recommended to bring the skin and the entire body into balance thereby treating the issues experienced by all the ayurvedic skin types. Our products are formulated with “balance” and “nature” in mind as this is what offers the ultimate harmony.
