Complexion looking a little lack-lustre? Suffering from oily skin? Whatever your skin is afflicted by, a consultation with Dr Prasanna Kerur, Ayurvedic physician at Ayush Wellness Spa, followed by one of their new La Sultane de Saba face therapies, could have some much-needed answers for you

Look fresh faced with Ayurveda

Ayurveda – the ancient Indian healing tradition – believes people are characterised by three traits: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, otherwise known as your ‘Dosha’ or character type. Once you know your Dosha you can eat, exercise and live accordingly to maintain optimum health and balance for body, mind and soul. So, which type and facial are you, and how can you sustain healthy-looking skin?

Vata (Air)

Skin Characteristics: Tends to have dry skin and fine hair. Intolerant of cold, windy weather which leads to cold hands and feet in winter.

Common Complaints: Prone to sensitive skin, headaches, eczema, nervous disorders and digestive problems.

Treatment – Soothing Vata Facial: This treatment will breathe new life into dry, stressed skin thanks to the deeply nourishing and intensely hydrating factors. La Sultane uses Argan oil based skin care range along with naturally sourced active ingredients that helps to restore skin’s lost lipids, softening, renewing and awakening your natural glow.

Pitta (Fire)

Skin Characteristics: Soft fair skin, prone to acne and moles. Intolerant to the heat and the sun.

Common complaints: Most prone to falling ill during the late spring/summer. Cracking and itchy skin, excessive thirst, jaundice and a bitter taste in the mouth.

Treatment – Cooling Pitta Facial: This facial will purify even the most delicate skin by sharing the benefits of La Sultane’s Sugarcane and Prickly pear range. Organic plant extracts combined with soothing prickly pear oil will heal, hydrate and firm, restoring balance to sensitive, irritated skin and help it regain strength and a youthful glow.

Kapha (Earth)

Skin Characteristics: Tendency towards oily, wavy hair, a clear complexion and a slow pulse.

Common complaints: Prone to ill health during the spring and late winter. Illnesses tend to revolve around congestion and fluid retention.

Treatment – Purifying Kapha Facial: The Kapha Facial uses La Sultane’s Seven spice skin care range along with organic active ingredients which are custom-blended for intensive exfoliation, nutrient infusion and a renewed moisture balance. The pressure point stimulation for the face and scalp along with lymphatic stimulation completes the experience, creating healthy, decongested skin.
