Cooling the fire of Pitta, for beautiful skin at any age
High in ﬁre, this skin has a natural rosy glow. In hot sunny weather, Pitta skin is easily irritated and can easily react to stress, hormones, poor diet and chemicals in skin care products. By midlife (age 25-50), a time dominated by Pitta, this skin is prone to adult acne and rosacea.
To keep your ﬁery skin glowing, you must keep your liver cool and detoxiﬁed. Avoid alcohol, soda, junk food and unhealthy fats. Your skin will flourish with pure skincare products, organic fruits and vegetables, and detoxifying spices like coriander and turmeric. Avoid fermented or acidic foods such as tomatoes and vinegar.
Topically, use cooling coconut oil and Sacred Skin Mineral Body Lotion for whole-body lubrication and nourishment. When applying moisturizer, apply lightly on the T-zone (your forehead, nose, mouth, and chin). When doing facials at home, use rose petals placed directly on your face. Sandalwood, neem and calendula are all soothing ingredients used in my products to help this skin type.
