What is Vata dosha and Vata type skin?

In Ayurveda, Vata dosha is the combination of air and space energies. When out of balance, Vata type skin can manifest as dry, dehydrated, dull, and flaky with signs of premature aging.

Beauty Editor Approved

I love how simple this oil blend is, made with sweet almond oil, sesame oil and the essential oils of sweet orange, rose, cardamom and geranium. It doesn’t feel overly greasy, yet is extremely nourishing. A little goes a long way- you only need 2-3 drops to help smooth and soften your skin.

Perfect for day wear

I'm in Colorado and typically dry. It's perfect for daily wear. I use this at night when I'm in more humid climates. Makes my skin glow.

Grounding and nourishing

I usually just use the Pitta oil, but I'm a combo dosha-- equal parts Pitta and Vata, and this winter, my skin was feeling drier, so I decided to add this to my routine. It's a beautiful fragrance and feels so soothing around my eyes and cheeks. I'm really happy that I bought this. So far, my skin's loved it.

Great Product

I have been using Vata facial oil for several years…in particular around the sensitive area around my eyes. It’s extremely moisturizing and has kept wrinkles at bay!

In my rotation

I recently tried this essential oil after using mainly pitta and the rejuvenating oils. I find that my face feels very smooth and definitely not dry after using it, however, if your skin is on the dryer side, the rejuvenating oil tends to be more hydrating and lasts longer than this one. Overall it's great and the scent is so relaxing.
