Should your Skincare be defined by your Doshas? Let’s find out with Samaya Ayurveda
Hey, we might have already embarked on our Ayurvedic journey so far, right from making our Ayurveda to-do-list every morning- to compiling all Ayurvedic resources on our wooden desk. Haven’t we?
Yes, all checked! So, why don’t we dive deep into the sea of Ayurveda and find out more about our Doshas?
Did you know, a human body is made up of a unique combination of three Doshas; Kapha, Vata and Pitta? This unique combination is our own personal blueprint called as prakriti (nature).
A Timeless Nature’s Formula
Okay, let’s catch how Doshas work. As we glide through our life, the proportion of each of the three Doshas constantly swings this way:
1. Kapha: Kapha is associated with earth and water and is a stabilizing energy meant to supply water to our body and maintain our immune system.
2. Vata: Vata is associated with the wind and is linked with flexibility, creativity, and free-flowing spirit that defines bodily movements like breathing, muscle contraction, and heart function.
3. Pitta: Pitta is linked to fire and is thought to control our endocrine, metabolic, and digestive systems.
Well, doshas walk through every second of our lives and rely on a delicate balance between mind, body, and spirit.
Achieving the Perfect Balance
Amidst balancing our health by understanding our body's basic constitution (Dosha), we came across Samaya Ayurveda; an all-natural skincare brand based on Ayurvedic principles, aimed towards helping the world achieve samadosha or a 'perfect balance' in life.
We spoke to its founder; Abida Halstenberg, a nature enthusiast who was born and brought up in India. She decided to create a natural range of skin-care products by providing holistic wellness in line with Ayurvedic Doshas.

Having been born and brought up in India, I was surrounded by Ayurveda and natural remedies. My grandmother was a big influence as she fostered in me a passion for herbal beauty from a very early age. Since then, I have been mixing face packs with Ayurvedic ingredients. When I moved abroad life got busier and I could not find what I was looking for, So, I decided to create a natural range that delivered functional benefits while providing holistic wellness in line with Ayurvedic Doshas.
