Top 4 Ayurvedic Beauty Brands

Ayurveda is a largely untapped resource for some of the best beauty secrets in the world. True to the principles of Ayurveda, Ayurvedic beauty products are designed to balance the body inside and out. Products are formulated with unique ingredients for each distinct constitution. One of the most important aspects of Ayurvedic beauty products is that all ingredients must be edible. The skin absorbs everything that is put on it, so ingredients should not introduce any toxins into the body.

There are many Ayurvedic beauty products available, but the best companies use organic, biologically active ingredients that are never tested on animals. I chose my four favorite brands that meet those criteria and are proven to be effective. All are developed by knowledgeable individuals who are trained in Ayurvedic medicine or who consult with practitioners on product development.

Eczema is caused by poor digestion, toxins in the bowel, incorrect diet, overuse of sour, salty, pungent, heavy, or oily foods.

However, eczema can be rooted in an imbalance in any of the three doshas.

Eczema and the Three Doshas

An imbalance in any of the three doshas can trigger eczema. Eczema is usually related, at least in part, to a Pitta imbalance. It is not uncommon for someone to experience elements of each type of eczema, as would be the case when all three doshas are out of balance.
