Skincare on the inside and out


In Ayurveda, taking good care of your skin starts with nourishing it.

Feeding our skin is both an inside and outside job.

External care

The surface of your skin is an oil "mantle." Similar to the digestive system, acting as a barrier to the external world. This barrier plays a crucial role in immunity. A well-maintained barrier ensures soft, glowing skin and supports immunity.

To keep your skin healthy, it's essential to prevent dryness and depletionLearn more about Daily Oiling as a foundational self care practice. When your skin is hydrated and nourished, it not only looks good but also functions effectively in protecting you from environmental toxins and pathogens.

Externally, use natural, nourishing products that support your skin’s barrier. Regular exfoliation and oleation with natural ingredients will help keep your skin surface well supported and radiant.

Internal care

Internally, it's not that complicated. Focus on eating non-processed foods, getting enough water and ensuring you have a good amount of healthy fats. If that does not clear and supplify your skin after two weeks, likely you need to clear out some toxic buildup and inflammation. 

Triphala is a no-brainer herbal formula to bring on for anyone with acne, or other inflammatory skin issues. It's not the best for dryness, but organic castor oil is a good proxy. 

  1. Dryness and Depletion (Vata Imbalance):

    • Hydration: Drink plenty of water.
    • Healthy Fats: Include good quality pure saturated fats in your diet. Hydration and fats work together to retain moisture and maintain skin suppleness.
  2. Inflammation (Pitta Imbalance):

    • Cool and Calm: Avoid foods and products that cause irritation and inflammation. Opt for soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredients. Externally, triphala powder and natural clays and dairy work best for this.
  3. Accumulation (Kapha Imbalance):

    • Exfoliation: Regularly slough off dead skin cells to keep your skin clean and prevent clogged pores. Externally, sugar, salt and coffee scrubs are great for this.
    • Internally, Triphala and not overeating. 
    • Regular exercise and sweating.
