September Skin-Care Tips


As we transition from the warmer season of summer to the cooler season of fall, we need to take extra care of our skin. Fall is the beginning of Vata season in Ayurveda. Vata’s qualities are dry, light, cold and rough, so you may notice your skin becoming dry, cool, and/or rough. A few things you can do include:


  • Abhyanga, or self-massage with warm oil. Abhi means “glow” in Sanskrit and anga means “limb”. Adding Abhyanga to your daily routine will help greatly with skin dryness and roughness, as well as increase circulation to the extremities. Go here for instructions on Abhyanga.

  • Weekly exfoliation of the skin can help prevent dry, dull skin. Exfoliation unclogs your follicles and pores, allowing oils and moisturizers to better penetrate your skin. Go here for instructions on exfoliation. Recipes specific for facial exfoliation (scrubs) are here.

  • Lastly, stay hydrated!
