Ayurvedic techniques combined with modern beauty industry practices bring you a facial that is a relaxing, purifying, nourishing, hydrating and rejuvenating experience. It leaves you with a luminous glow you’ve always dreamed of.
Ayurvedic therapy has been used for around 5000 years and incorporates a different style of skin analysis to treat customer concerns.
Normally, the skin is categorized by the western world as dry, oily or combination. Most people fall under one of these categories and have additional skin problems which are dealt with accordingly.
Skin types in Ayurveda are made on the basis of the doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The root of skin problems could be due to an aggravated dosha. Just as each dosha has its own characteristics, each dosha skin type has its own characteristics. Most likely, your skin will be similar to your prevalent dosha.
The doshas are a combination of the five elements (Pancha mahabhutas).
- Vata Constitution: Akash (Ether or Space) + Vayu (Air)
- Pitta Constitution: Agni (Fire) + Jala (Water)
- Kapha Constitution: Prithvi (Earth) + Jala (Water)
A person’s Ayurvedic skin type can be Vata, Pitta or Kapha or sometimes a combination of two of these.
Over time, your skin type may become imbalanced because of external factors like climate, diet, and lifestyle habits or environmental pollution. Hormonal changes may also mask your original skin type.
Here is the basis of Ayurvedic skin analysis ….
- Vata Skin: Vata skin is usually dry thin, delicate and cool to touch. Vata skin ages faster and tends to be dry, rough and flaky when Vata is imbalanced
- Pitta Skin: When Pitta gets imbalanced, Pitta skin is prone to discoloration, pimples, freckles, and moles. This type of skin is sun-sensitive and tends to flare-ups with rashes, eruptions or sun patches on prolonged exposure to the sun.
- Kapha Skin: Kapha skin types tend to age at a slower rate. They are prone to a dull complexion.

Double Cleansing & Facial Steaming ~
clears out your pores, deep cleanses the skin and removes toxins. This is because the heat that is given by the steam can open up your pores and as a result, dirt and germs can be easily removed. Steam makes your skin sweat a lot more than usual. Toxins are then released from the skin’s pores, preventing skin eruptions. With the help of facial steaming, you can improve blood circulation in your face. Steaming causes your blood vessels to dilate. This promotes blood flow throughout your skin, as a result an increase in nutrients and oxygen is supplied to the skin cells which prevents wrinkles.
Exfoliation ~ removes dead skin cells, embedded dirt and toxins, and stimulates the skin, making it receptive to the nutrient-rich facial mask.
According to the ancient Ayurvedic scholar Sushruta, a face mask or anulepan provides charm, complexion, cheerfulness, energy, and strength. It eliminates sweat, foul smell, abnormality of complexion and fatigue.
Facial masks ~ treat your particular skin type or condition. If you’re dry or dehydrated, the facial mask should hydrate your skin. If your skin is red or inflamed, the mask should calm and soothe. If your skin is oily and congested, the facial mask can help draw out impurities from the skin.

What is Cosmetic Tattooing or Semi-Permanent Makeup?
Cosmetic Tattooing, also called ‘Micropigmentation’, is a popular well-tolerated cosmetic treatment involving the controlled insertion of safe colour pigments into the dermis layer of the skin, instantly improving appearance, facial definition and in most instances, a long lasting effect. Basically this is a cosmetic treatment that defines your eyes, brows or lips with a soft, natural appearance or a bold style – the choice is yours and it looks, and stays looking, like perfectly applied make-up or the most subtle of enhancements. All cosmetic tattooing will ‘fade’, or metabolise, to some degree. Initial fading occurs within first month called them healing’ stage and some procedures require a ‘touch up’ and then will last anywhere from 1-3yrs.
