7 DIY Ayurvedic Skin Brightening Face Packs

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian practice that eliminates chemicals and solves problems by using the goodness of natural elements. Ayurvedic skincare treatments are based on three skin types: 

  • Vata (wind) 
  • Pitta (fire) 
  • Kapha (water and earth) 

According to Ayurveda, a person's body and mind are built on the three above doshas.  

Vata: Someone who has rough, dry skin. 

Pitta: People with oily skin and prone to acne. 

Kapha: People whose skin is susceptible to pimples. 

Skin brightening ayurvedic facial at home helps eliminate the problem from roots and cleanse your skin inside out.
