Looking for wholesome, natural and effective skin care for oily skin?
Skin that is oily, sensitive and easily irritated, flushes easily and gets reddish in the sun and occasionally breaks out can be described as skin with dominant pitta dosha. Ayurveda tells us that calming and balancing Pitta dosha is tricky: Pitta tends to get irritated and flares up when treated with harsh cleansers, or aggressive attempts to dry out excess sebum.
Instead, we are asked to treat Pitta dominant skin very gently: we are asked to cool, soothe and gently balance aggravated Pitta dosha. When we work on aggravated Pitta dosha instead of symptomatically working on oily skin, we are able to holistically treat the concerns of this skin type at a deep level.
Conventional skin care for oily skin tends to be very harsh, irritating and over-cleansing. The method they follow is to aggressively cleanse skin ,irritating it and stripping it of its protective natural oils. This aggressive treatment increases the natural sebum production in skin. So oily skin tends to have breakouts, blemishes, large, open pores, and black and white heads and does not look its best.
Try Krya’s Classic Facial Skin balancing facial system instead. The is a wholesome, natural and effective set of skin care for oily skin.
