What is Pitta dosha and Pitta type skin?

In Ayurveda, Pitta dosha is the combination of fire and water energies. When out of balance, Pitta type skin can manifest as inflammation, redness, breakouts, acne, sensitivity, and rosacea.

Tones down the redness & heat!

I've tended to have a rosy-colored complexion and especially in the Spring/Summer, my face is noticeably red. I especially notice when I'm on Zoom meetings that my face looks so red, while my neck is white! Not the best look! This pitta face oil has considerably toned down the redness & heat in my face after only a few uses. It smells DIVINE and using it feels like such incredible self care! If you're prone to redness, give it a try!

The best smelling products on the market!

I've been using Pratima's products for years and the scent is like no other. Very pleasant and natural smelling. I use this pitta oil mixed with the vitamin c serum on my beard after I shave and I get compliments. These products are not just for women but men can also use it as well. The pitta oil is one of my favorites and I highly recommend it!

Love this!

Can’t be without it!

Your skin will thank you

I love everything I've gotten from Pratima! I think I've finally found my perfect combo, which is a few drops of the nourishing oil along with the Pitta oil. I add liposomes a few times per week, and also spot treat with Bakuchi oil when needed. And top it all off with the saffron eye ghee. Everything smells and feels so good..I wake up in the morning still feeling moisturized!

One note- the Vatta was a bit too strong for me, but the combo of nourishing oil and Pitta work really well.

I love everything about this oil

The Pitta Face Essential Oil smells divinely like roses. I ordered 3 samples of various face oils and while I loved them all, this won me over because of the scent. My husband commented how good it smelled as he reached over to kiss me goodnight. :) I have fairly normal skin but being winter, I wanted something very moisturizing so I tested out 3 oils. Honestly, they were all good and I was worried that this wouldn't be enough because it is for combination skin which I no longer have as I'm in my 50's. It's wonderful though and honestly, I don't think I could have gone wrong with any of them. Fantastic product. I'll be back for more!
