For vata skin, you will need to combat the dry nature with warm and grounding foods, such as coconut oil and avocado, which have very hydrating fats. In addition, warming foods, like soups and stews, are really beneficial. Next time you are feeling an ice-cold sip of water, try drinking warm water instead. Avoid drier foods, like beans, raw vegetables, and crackers.
As pitta is mainly fire, it is important to avoid spicy, sour, and pungent foods. Instead, pittas should have sweet and cooling foods. The best foods to balance a pitta imbalance would be sweet fruits (apricots, bananas, and cherries) and grains (barley, quinoa, and oats).
And lastly, kapha skin types should include lighter foods in their diet, such as artichokes, spinach, apples, lemons, lentils, and chickpeas. These are all great foods to counteract the naturally oily and heavy tendencies of kapha skin. The main foods to avoid would be dense foods like pastas, avocados, and wheat.
No matter your doshic constitution, radiant and glowing skin is within reach when you incorporate ayurvedic wisdom into your day-to-day diet.
