YOUR PRIMARY skin type is Vata
There is strength in the lightness of your being.
Elements: Air and Space

Vata dosha is ruled by the air element. You’re active and adaptable, you do things quickly and are easily energized but
just as easily frazzled and overwhelmed. Your mind is highly active and it can get the best of your sometimes.

The key to embodying the positive elements of Vata is to take your time. Don’t try to rush through everything. Focus on
grounding your energy through deep breathing and eat warming nourishing foods.

Physically, those with a primarily vata constitution are slender, with prominent joints and skin that tends to dry and crack
easily. When you’re out of balance your sleep suffers and you can become hyperactive and scattered.

HOW TO CARE FOR VATA SKIN

You have skin with tendencies toward dryness and premature fine lines.

Vata skin is often quite thin and delicate, it can sometimes appear slightly see through.

When balanced it’s quite normal, but when out of balance you may tend toward dryness and sensitivity.

It’s essential to avoid artificial ingredients and colors— these will exacerbate any imbalances.
