The main element of Pitta dosha is Fire, and that means that heat and inflammation are synonymous to this skin type. That is the reason why Pitta skin type is very prone to flaring up, even due to the smallest of triggers. The skin is warm to touch, and has a lustre to it. It might not be oily all over… only on the T-zone, and is very sensitive. The cheeks might be dry, which means that this skin might be called \’combination\’ skin by a lot of dermatologists. This type of skin needs a lot of care to maintain it nicely.
- Is the Pitta type of skin good?
Yes, when in balance, this skin is radiant. This type of skin is sensitive, so one has to be careful about taking care of it. This type of skin is somewhere between Vata and Kapha.
- What are the problems Pitta skin type might face?
Like we said, since Pitta skin is somewhere in between Vata and Kapha type, it might face problems that both of them face. Since this skin type is overtly sensitive, the skin burns in the Sun easily. It is also prone to issues like rosacea and general redness, as well as rashes, acne, eczema and psoriasis.
- What triggers an imbalance in the Pitta skin type?
These are the people who have cabinets full of products because anything and everything can trigger an issue with their skin! It might be chemicals, Sun exposure, too much heat and humidity, or just a cream that doesn\’t suit!
- What does this type of skin need?
More than anything else, this type of skin needs cooling – from inside as well as outside. Sunscreen is a must, so that the Sun doesn\’t lead to more sensitivity and problems. People who have this type of skin should find products that suit them, and should stick to them without experimenting too much. Keeping the use of chemicals to a minimum is also a good idea. Using products and a diet that cool down the body and the skin are beneficial for this skin type.
- What type of food is suitable for Pitta skin type?
Like we mentioned before, cooling the skin is imperative. Foods that are watery and sweet like melons, mangoes etc. are good for this skin type. Using coconut oil and consuming it is also beneficial. Using spices like turmeric and fennel seeds during cooking can also aid the Pitta skin type.
