10.3.2 Ayurvedic beauty care revolves
around your constitution
Ayurvedic beauty care revolves around your constitution. You can also use treatments locally for problems even if that humor is not imbalanced. For example, if you have dry skin and have a predominately pitta constitution - this happens to me all the time - it can indicate an imbalance of vata or not. If the vata humor is not imbalanced then you may treat your skin with anti-vata treatment even though vata is not your natal constitution. If, as in the above example, the vata humor is involved, then treatment would first consider balancing the vata humor and then treating the skin. With Ayurvedic therapies you have many possibilities to balance and promote health. For further information on how to apply these therapies to beauty I highly recommend Melanie Sachs Ayurvedic Beauty Care.
