Pratima Vata Herbal Cleanser, Vata Essential Oil, Vata Rejuvenating Body Oil, Rejuvenating Pearl Cream, Age Delay Serum & Saffron Eye Ghee. A contradictory complexion is par for the course, says Dr. Pratima Raichur, an expert chemist, botanist and Ayurvedic physician and owner of Pratima Spa in New York -who transforms the ancient properties of Ayurveda into modern prescriptions for skin. It’s Vata season. The Ayurvedic calendar says October through February is a time when our bodies, thus skin, are plagued by imbalances and change, says Raichur. ‘Vata’ is both a season, and one of three Ayurvedic constitutions called doshas that apply to people. Vata-dominant people will typically have dry skin and hair, be prone to premature wrinkles, and lack skin luster, and this time of year, it can worsen. Even if Vata is not your primary dosha, all of us are prone to these conditions now. Her recommendation is to treat with oil combined with herbs. Since oil is what the skin produces -and ultimately loses, this is exactly what it needs for genuine and lasting replenishment. The Ayurvedic Pratima Spa Skincare line brings together the wisdom of nature and the intelligence intrinsically embedded in every ingredient to deliver organic formulas -synergistically and conscientiously blended to promote balance and improve skin immunity, to profoundly restore and visibly transform.
