In Ayurveda, Kapha is ruled by the elements earth and water. Generally quite loving and forgiving by nature, Kapha types tend to store their energy. Kapha dosha people are the least likely to fall out of balance, but when they do this can manifest as being sluggish, slow and overweight, and mentally they can develop feelings of insecurity or envy. This over-accumulation of energy is evident in slow decision-making tendencies.
Kapha types tend to be grounded and emotionally and physically strong and resilient. They are often placid, kind, thoughtful, loyal and will avoid confrontation. They don’t like change or the unpredictable aspects of life. Kapha types tend to have thick and lustrous hair, big muscles and broad shoulders. Their digestion and metabolism is slow and they tend to enjoy deep sleep.
Kapha-type skin reflects the qualities of the earth and water elements. When in balance, kapha skin is pale, soft, supple, cool and slightly moist. It has been said that people of kapha nature have skin like a china doll. When out of balance, this skin-type is prone to excess oil, cystic acne, large pores, congestion and excess moisture. Kapha skin has a generous amount of collagen that wards off premature wrinkles and signs of aging. Our Kapha Skincare Ritual is formulated with specific herbs to have an astringent, warming and detoxifying effect on the skin, in order to bring ideal balance to kapha-type skin.
Kapha skin is usually oily with large pores. Tolerant to sun, Kapha’s excess oil demonstrates a greater predilection to blackheads and needs regular detoxification. Kapha skincare should be stimulating with regular cleansing of the face; at least twice daily, and deep exfoliation at least once a week.
TIPS FOR RADIANT KAPHA SKIN
