Ayurveda health and beauty - pitta dosha

People of pitta dosha would benefit from an Ayurveda massage

Pittas are usually of medium build with good muscle tone and they are intelligent.  They have bags of energy, are passionate about everything they do and highly competitive.  
When they are out of balance however they can suffer from inflammatory conditions arising as a result of stress such as gastric reflux, stomach ulcers, rosacea and other skin rashes. They may also suffer from insomnia and anger issues.  Left unchecked stress can lead to cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Please see 'Reduce stress, increase wellbeing' http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/reduce-stress-increase-wellbeing.html

In order to reduce stress, pittas should consider yoga, Tai chi or meditation. Pittas should also avoid caffeine and spicy foods. 

If pittas work with computers they may benefit from using crystals to absorb negative energies.  Please see - 'Using crystals to clear negative energies'- http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/using-crystals-to-clear-negative.html
Pitta ladies may have mood swings resulting from hormone imbalances.  Please see- 'Balancing hormones for youthful skin and hair' on my YouTube Channel- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpQ2QRfIWKs  

Like vatas, pittas would benefit from a few drops of lavender on their pillows at night to help them sleep.  

A daily Ayurvedic massage (abhyanga) would help pittas relieve stress and relax their bodies. Before your morning bath or shower apply warm massage oil and leave for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes massage the oil in with light, even strokes then relax for 10-15 minutes before having a bath or shower.  A drop of lavender added to the oil would add to the calming effect.  

In terms of beauty rosacea or adult acne can be upsetting for pittas.  Please see 'Stop seeing red' http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/rosacea-stop-seeing-red.html Pittas are also sensitive to heat and should be sure to use a good sun screen.  Please see 'Sun protection- what you need to know. http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/sun-protection-what-you-need-to-know.html Pittas would also benefit from a cooling facial spray.

Wishing you health and beauty
