Vataja skin(Air+Ether)
 Description: Vata is composed of the elements of air and space. If you have a vata skin type, your skin will be dry, thin, fine pored, delicate and cool to the touch. When balanced, it glows with a delicate lightness and refinement that is elegant and attractive. When vata skin is imbalanced, it will be prone to excessive dryness and may even be rough and flaky.

Potential problems:
Vata skin : Early aging, develop wrinkles earlier than most due to its tendency to dryness and thinness. If your digestion is not in balance,  skin becomes dull and grayish,  tendency for disorders such as dry eczema and skin fungus. Mental stress, such as worry, fear and lack of sleep, has a powerful  effect on vata skin. It  looks tired and lifeless.

Recommendations for care
- preventing it from drying is the major consideration.
- Eat a warm, unctuous diet (ghee and olive oil are best)
- favor sour, salty and sweet tastes (naturally sweet like fruits, not refined sugar) as they balance vata.
- Avoid drying foods like crackers.

Recommendations for care

  • Drink 6-8 glasses of warm (not cold for vata types!) water throughout the day and eat plenty of sweet, juicy fruits.
  • Going to bed early (before 10 PM) is very soothing to vata and will have a tremendously positive influence on your skin.
  • Avoid cleansing products that dry the skin (like alcohol-based cleansers)
  • Ayurvedic oil massage  in the morning before you shower
