Ayurveda dominated the wellness space in 2017 and is here to stay in 2018 (moringa, anyone?). But while most of these wellness trends are suggested to everyone, the real magic unfolds when you choose the right treatments for your dosha. This is easy when it comes to food, difficult when it comes to skincare. So imagine my joy when I found an oil cleanser for Pitta, my dosha. Pitta skin type is super oily which makes finding the perfect oil cleanser slightly challenging. Samaya’s Pitta Hydrating Cleanser is creamy, removes makeup almost instantly and, leaves my skin feeling hydrated AND clean. Also, this cleanser leaves virtually no residue which makes it literally magic. My quest for the perfect oil cleanser has officially ended.
I follow the oil cleansing with Purearth’s Turmeric Exfoliating Face Sand because double cleansing is life. It instantly brightens my skin and unclogs my pores. On some days I spread an even layer of the sand on my face and leave it on as a face mask for ~20 mins. The routine ends with heavy moisturizing of my squeaky clean skin followed by (on good days) a sheet mask while I lay on the couch binge watching Season 2 of Hello! My Twenties.
