According to Ayurveda, Dosha is an energy derived from the permutation and combination of the five basic elements- Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The dynamic equilibrium of the three Doshas Vata – ether and air, Pitta - fire and water, Kapha - water and earth, defines the state of physical, spiritual, mental and social well-being for us.
The delicate balance of your skin is a result of the inter-play of these Doshas which play an important role in keeping it healthy.
In Sanskrit, Pitta mean ‘to heat’. It comprises fire and water and governs digestion, metabolism and body temperature. The qualities of Pitta are hot, sour, sharp and acidic. To balance Pitta, use products that are cooling and soothing.
