ayurveda

Ayurveda has its origins in India and like more familiar Traditional Chinese Medicine modality, Ayurveda is a holistic and powerful mind-body health system to help people stay vibrant and healthy.  More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It is based on the premise that we can bring balance and harmony to mind and body using nutrition, sound, color, aromas and lifestyle techniques such as yoga and meditation.  Inlightened Skin Care uses the wisdom of Ayurveda and incorporates ingredients, scents and colors to create a truly natural skin care line that leaves your skin feeling fabulous.

Vata

Dry / Mature Skin (Vata):  A person with Dry or Mature skin is likely to have a predominance of the air element in their constitution.  Like the wind, Vata can come like a refreshing breeze or the rush of a gale, and her nature is one of change and motion. Her skin is dry, cool and tends to be thin. She may be prone to early wrinkles. Vata tends to feel cold easily and is comforted by stability, warmth and a nourishing environment. Curling up by a fire or on a warm beach brings warmth and calm to Vata.

For dry/mature skin, we have carefully selected colors, aromas and ingredients to invite a sense of nurturing and calm, while deeply hydrating the skin.  The deep rich blue chosen for the packaging is balancing to those with a Vata nature, and the warming oils and aromas selected for the products bring a sense of grounding and comfort.

Pitta

Sensitive Skin (Pitta): A person with Sensitive skin is likely to have a predominance of the fire element in their constitution. Like fire, Pitta can bring warmth or be a blazing bonfire.  Her soft skin is often dotted with freckles and tends towards a pinkish hue. When her skin is out of balance, she may experience hot rashes, rosacea acne, or other inflammations. Those with a Pitta nature also tend to have combination skin, with an oiler “T-zone” and may experience occasional acne flare ups. She is balanced through a relaxing environment and time to “chill out”.  A moonlight stroll is perfect for Pitta.    

For sensitive skin, we have carefully selected colors, aromas and ingredients that are calming and act to soothe any inflammation. The green color chosen for the packaging and the healing botanicals used in the products are designed to promote a sense balance to those with a Pitta nature.

Kapha
