A Beauty Routine for Glowing Skin

By Tiziana Boccaletti

Nature provides a clear blueprint for all of us to follow in order to find harmony, health, happiness through ALL the seasons. Through primordial engineering, Nature provides exactly what we need at the perfect time.

If you think that bitter bright green Dandelions, orange lymph-loving Calendulas, dark red liver friendly beets and purple astringent Berries pop up at our Farmers’ Markets in Springtime just by chance, think again! We are witnessing displays of powerful medicine lovingly offered by Mother Nature for us to restore balance. All we have to do is align ourselves with this wisdom by following these Ayurvedic beauty tips for glowing skin.



2 tsp Manjistha Powder
1 tbs Amla Powder
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
a pinch of freshly grated Ginger
½ tsp Fenugreek
2-4 tsp Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth Clay)
2 tsp Honey
Shilajit Tea (rice grain size portion of Shilajit dissolved in 4oz water)


Add enough Shilajit Tea to make a paste. Use this paste in 3 convenient ways: As a quick cleanser, a mask (5-7 minutes) or a spot treatment if there are small areas (did I say pimples?) that need more attention.

NOTE: For Vata skin, add warm cream or full fat milk because it is much easier to get than GF Oat flour. For Kapha skin type add a little honey. For Vata skin type, add warm cream or full fat milk. For Pitta skin type, add Aloe Juice. 

Know Your Skin Dosha

In Ayurvedic Skin Care, the first step is to know your “dosha” type which is your ayurvedic skin type. According to Ayurvedic principles, there are three dosha types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha or a mixture of two skin types. To know your dosha is to know yourself, what works for you, what doesn’t and why your skin reacts the way it does.

Vata skin types are generally dry, thin and delicate. Extremely sensitive to weather conditions, especially dry windy weather and is easily dehydrated. Vata skin is prone to pre-aging and tends to be dry, rough and flaky when out of balance.

Pitta skin is usually fair, sensitive, soft, warm, medium thickness. It is prone to freckles, moles and broken capillaries. When out of balance, Pitta skin can erupt in rashes, acne rosacea and allergic reactions.

Kapha skin is usually thick, pale, soft, cool and more tolerant to the sun. It tends to age slower and forms less wrinkles than the other two skin types. Prone to dull complexion, enlarged pores, oily T-Zone, blackheads and pimples, water retention or cystic acne when out of balance.
