Know your Dosha: For MOST Beautiful Skin 

For clear, healthy, glowing skin, it’s important to embody inner and outer health and beauty. Enter Ayurveda. It is the holistic system of health, originating in India over 5,000 years ago, which addresses health as a preventative measure, by maintaining it BEFORE you get sick and imbalanced, versus AFTER. Basically, it is proactive and preventative holistic health. Even better, Ayurveda addresses your mind, body AND soul.

Following Ayurveda's wisdom, in addition to a meditative mantra and specific aromatherapy blend associated with each Shaffali Skincare product, each contains amazing ingredients commonly found in Ayurvedic remedies - all to address your mind (aromatherapy), body (herbs and spices) AND soul (mantras).

Ayurveda has three types of constitutions, known as your Dosha: Vata (air), Kapha (earth) and Pitta (fire). Each of these elements represent the blend of energies that exist in all of us. Even though we have all 3 Doshas within us, we can use specific signs to find out if we have an imbalance of one or more of these Doshas. An imbalance shows up in our skin when it becomes excessively dry or oily, having eczema or acne. These signs from our body are letting us know that we need to make some changes in order to dramatically improve our skin, lives and health.
