WHAT TO DO IF MY SKIN IS A COMBINATION OF MORE THAN ONE DOSHA TYPE?

If your skin is a combination of more than one type, choose products related to your most prominent dosha type at the moment. For example, in the winter months it is more common to see Vata issues of dryness etc, and during the summer months, more common to see PITTA related issues such as skin sensitivity, rashes etc. You may also choose to combine more than on doshic-type of product, and thus reap all the benefits at once of the two concerned doshas.
