Skin care – your daily habits (dinacharya) have a big impact

Daily self care and how you tailor that care by observing your skin’s needs is an important aspect of Ayurvedic dinacharya. While Ayurvedic skin care is not mentioned by name here, adjusting the products you use to your skin’s temperament (oily, sensitive, dry) is similar to Ayurvedic advice about adjusting your skin cleansing routine based on the doshas. Your skin’s temperament can change day to day and season to season depending on stress, activity levels, and weather patterns – which impact the balance of the doshas in the body.

Skin care and the doshas

Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA — your daily habits, in fact, have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. But depending on which product reviews you read or doctors you consult, there is a dizzying number of opinions on everything from how to moisturize to how to protect yourself from UV rays. Ultimately, caring for your skin is simply personal. Here’s what you should keep in mind to sort through all the noise.
