How to Get Rid of Summer Skin Dullness According to Your Skin Type?

Skin is not only the largest organ of the human body but one of the major summer concerns as well. Almost everyone is searching for the best skin care product for their skin in the market. The best way to know your skin type and pamper it is to know its type and accordingly choose the methods and concoctions that eliminate the dullness of your skin.

The four basic skin types are – normal, dry, oily, and sensitive. In fact, skin type is recognized by genetics. However, there are many factors behind the different conditions of your skin, from your body type to pollution. It is significant to start taking care of your skin by evaluating the skin type rather than rushing for any kind of treatment.

As per the Ayurveda, all the below mentioned skin types fall under three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. To get going here’s what you must know before rushing for any skincare products for yourself.

Let’s understand the different skin types, concerns associated with and the skincare solution you should choose for yourself.


1. Dry skin (Vata)

If your skin appears dull, lifeless, flaky, and delicate, know that you have dry skin. The skin might look dull because of a layer of dead skin cells; there are many other reasons why your skin looks so dull. The possible reasons could be sun exposure, hot shower, and over-exfoliating with products.

As you are a Vata type and have dominance of space and air elements, here’s what you could do if you’re prone to dry skin, your dry skin can easily manage a creamier product like moisturizer or gel. You better go for moisturizer in the morning and before going to bed at night. Drinking enough water and coconut water will help you and your skin stay hydrated.

Skincare for you: Your skin will not welcome an idea of a hot water shower, avoid it. Nurture and moisturize your skin, and practice oil massage (abhyanga) every day.

2. Sensitive skin (Pitta)

If you have skin that is prone to irritation, inflammation, and breakouts, know that you are Pitta type with sensitive skin. You have a constitution of water and fire together and so the chances are that your skin will come across sunburns, pigmentation, and acne.

You often get to see itchy and red skin, and this happens due to the dominance of fire elements in your body. It overlaps with dry skins as well. You should know that over scrubbing, over-exfoliating, and using harsh products can cause you the damage you would never want to see.

3. Oily Skin (Kapha)

Kapha types have oily and thick skin due to the dominance of earth elements in their body. People with oily skin are more likely to get prone to problems like acne, blackheads, and fungal infections. Open pores are quite visible on their skin.

The problem arises because of bigger pores as it secrets more oil from oil glands. The most common sign of oily skin is when you apply a moisturizer, you breakout! We know, you must be tired of hunting for sunscreen and moisturizer that doesn’t feel sticky, and a face cleanser that cleanses your oily skin and leaves it soft and supple.

Skincare for you: You must avoid thick creams and cleanse your skin with a face wash that leaves your skin non-greasy for longer. Use a gentle exfoliant and make sure that you eat plenty of fruits and veggies to eliminate ama (toxins) from your body, naturally!
