Vata skin tends to be quite dry, pretty much everywhere and never feels sensitive or shows signs of redness (or a pink undertone on the cheeks).

Vata is a combination of air and space elements. This gives skin its dry tendency. It also makes skin cool to the touch. It will also be thinner when compared to people of the same age group and ethnicity.

When out of balance this skin type can be excessively dry and feel rough and flaky or look dull from dead skin build-up.

Bringing balance: To bring into balance the cold, light and dry nature of vata, products need to be warming, rich, highly hydrating and moisturizing. Ingredients are selected for their regenerative qualities to help slow down the somewhat accelerated aging process.

Kapha skin tends to be thicker and naturally oily everywhere (not just in the T-Zone area) and never feels sensitive or shows signs of redness (or a pink undertone on the cheeks).

Kapha is a combination of earth and water elements. This means that earth and water predominates in the skin. This gives skin its naturally oily and cool tendencies and predisposition towards congestion or water retention. Kapha skin will also feel thicker when compared to other people of the same age group and ethnicity.

When out of balance this skin type can be excessively oily or feel congested, sluggish, show signs of water retention, etc. 

Bringing balance: To bring into balance the cold, heavy and oily nature of kapha, products will be warming, light and oil-balancing. Ingredients will also have invigorating qualities to help with congestion and sluggishness. Note about very oily skin: An excessively oily skin is usually dehydrated at a deep level and tries to compensate for the dryness by overproducing oil. Kapha products will hydrate the skin deeply while balancing oil production.

There are 3 variations:

1) Sensitive skin - Skin can feel sensitive or show signs of redness. A pink undertone to the cheeks is a good indication that you have pitta skin. 2) Combination skin –Skin can exhibit more than one quality. You may feel dehydrated (and usually sensitive) with a normal T-Zone (forehead, nose and chin) or feel normal with a more oily T-Zone area. 3) Normal skin – Skin can feel quite “normal” and you may not be experiencing excessive dryness, oiliness or even sensitivity.

Pitta is a combination of mostly fire with a little water, meaning that fire predominates in the skin. This makes skin warm to the touch. Fire and water can also bring some conflicting qualities resulting in a skin that can feel partially oily or partially dehydrated and sensitive, and the skin may feel like there is excess heat.

When out of balance this skin type can feel very sensitive, have a tendency towards redness, inflammation, and in extreme cases rosacea. If fire is too high the skin may feel partially dehydrated and sensitive and if water is too high the skin may be partially oily.

Bringing balance: To bring into balance the fiery nature of Pitta, products will need to be hydrating, cooling and soothing. Ingredients will have deeply soothing properties to calm down sensitivity, irritation, and redness if present. Moisturizing and slightly balancing ingredients will adapt perfectly to the conditions of the skin and bring balance whether the skin feels perfectly normal or partially dry or oily (combination skin).

During pregnancy, one should avoid products and treatments that are too stimulating or detoxifying. The Energizing Body Oil contains ingredients in the cinnamon family that can be a little too invigorating during pregnancy. The Cellulite products are an example of products that are quite purifying so better avoided. All of our other products would be very nourishing and beneficial.

Shankara’s Blemish Support Products offer a safe and natural alternative for acne prone skin. These products will naturally support deep cleansing and balance for a healthy and clear complexion without clogging pores.

Just a few blemishes - Simply use the Blemish Support Oil in your daily skin care regime as followed: Cleanse and exfoliate as usual. Apply the Daily Repair Serum for your skin type. If using the Anti-Age Serum, avoid using it on affected (acneic) areas. Spot treat blemishes with the Blemish Support Face Oil. Follow with the appropriate Treatment Oil or Moisturizer for your skin type.

Blemished Skin: If the skin has many blemishes, use the Blemish Support program until the condition has cleared up and the skin is balanced.

Products to be used are:
• Purifying Cleanser
• Deep cleanser
• Blemish Support Serum
• Blemish Support Face Oil
• Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
• Calming Face Mask can also be beneficial for its soothing properties

Everybody’s skin will get a little dryer, thinner and loose some elasticity with age but the fundamental type will not change. 

Aging skin will benefit from the Anti-Age Serum and the Daily Repair Serum and can be added to your skin care routine to boost hydration and rejuvenation.

Not if you are using the right face oil for you. Skin that is oily is actually very dehydrated at a deeper level. Once the skin begins to hydrate deeply, it will move towards balance.
