- Skin Type
Ayurveda heals by identifying your unique dosha (skin/body type). Each dosha combines in a special way the five elements of the universe (air, fire, water, earth, space). Vata (dry skin), Pitta (sensitive skin), Kapha (oily skin).
Knowing your body type is the key factor in selecting customized skin care, body care, hair care products that are right for you. Bindi has developed a simple questionnaire that will tell you your skin type and you will be on your way.
Ayurveda is a science that takes care of your every realm - mental, physical and spiritual. What is good for one person isn't good always good for everyone. Men and women use the secret of ayurveda based on their individual mind and body type. Ayurvedic philosophy says that we are each born with some of the characteristics of all three types, but in different proportions.
We are "in balance" when we are healthy, happy, and radiantly beautiful, expressing the ration of Kapha, Pitta and Vata elements set in us at birth.
All Bindi products were developed to help you restore the balance of your mind, body and spirit.
