Soothe Your Skin: The Ayurvedic Approach to Common Skin Imbalances

Alt-text: Woman using face paint to promote sustainable skincare products

Our skin reflects our inner well-being and is often the first indicator of health issues. In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, the skin is seen as a mirror that reflects the state of our internal balance.

According to Ayurveda, achieving radiant and healthy skin isn't just about superficial treatments; it's about addressing the root causes of common skin imbalances from within.

Explore some insights into the Ayurveda approach to common skin concerns with Natural Soul Skincare's experts, along with recommendations for soothing skincare products and remedies for healthier, more radiant skin.

Understanding Ayurveda &Doshas

Ayurveda categorises individuals into three dosha types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each dosha is associated with specific physical and mental characteristics and imbalances, and these doshas play a significant role in skin health.


Vata-dominant individuals tend to have dry, delicate skin prone to flakiness and premature ageing.


Pitta-dominant individuals typically have sensitive, oily, or combination skin prone to redness, inflammation, and acne.


Kapha-dominant individuals often have thick, oily skin susceptible to congestion, dullness, and enlarged pores.

Common Skin Imbalances and Ayurvedic Solutions

Dry Skin

To counteract dryness, Ayurveda recommends nourishing and hydrating the skin with natural facial oil blends. Regular oil massages, known as Abhyanga, are also effective in deeply moisturising and improving skin elasticity.

Acne & Inflammation

Cooling and calming practices are essential for managing Pitta-related skin issues. Opt for a gentle cleansing routine using soothing skincare products. Avoid hot water and spicy foods that can aggravate Pitta. Use Ayurvedic face masks for acne.

Designed to alleviate inflammatory skin conditions, soothe irritated skin, and minimise breakouts, our Soothing Face Mask harnesses the cooling, calming, and stabilising attributes resulting from the combination of rose petal powder and sandalwood powder.

Oily Skin & Congestion

To balance excess Kapha, focus on cleansing and detoxifying the skin. Use natural cleansers with ingredients like lemon, honey, or neem to reduce oiliness.

Clay masks, particularly those containing Fuller's earth (Multani Mitti), can draw out impurities and excess oil from the skin. Additionally, rosewater can be used as a toner to refresh and balance Kapha skin.

Hyperpigmentation & Uneven Skin Tone

Ayurveda suggests using natural exfoliants like Himalayan salt to gently remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture. Avoid excessive sun exposure and protect your skin with natural sunscreens.

Turmeric, saffron, Cassia oil, Sea Buckhorn CO2, and many other essential oils and organic ingredients used in our organic face scrub, facial oils, and natural serums help combat hyperpigmentation.
