As an individual with a predominance of Vata in your constitution, you embody the qualities of Air & space in your physical, emotional, and mental aspects. Your physique is often characterized as light and airy, with a slender frame, small bones, and a delicate build, which can present challenges in gaining weight. Vata skin tends to be rough, dry, and delicate, with small pores, often feeling cool to the touch. This dry, cold, and dynamic Vata nature also heightens your sensitivity to cold environments.

Are you the one who usually reaches for a sweater or blanket as soon as the temperature drops in the room?

With a Vata-dominant mind, you possess excellent communication skills and a creative, imaginative spirit. However, an imbalanced Vata may lead to difficulties in maintaining focus, resulting in a wandering mind. Mental imbalance in Vata can manifest as excessive stress, rapid agitation and anger, dramatic emotional fluctuations, and feelings of low energy and exhaustion due to Vata's ever-shifting nature.

If you are a Vata-dominant person and want to keep your Vata in balance,
we suggest below daily regimen (dinacharya)

Vata skin thrives with the use of warming, softening, and moisture-rich ingredients, which effectively counterbalance its rough and dry nature. Our specially designed VATA skincare range is crafted to cater to mature and/or dry skin types, providing the nourishment and balance your skin deserves.
