YOUR PRIMARY skin type is Kapha
Your nature is to flow like water, languid, peaceful,
and life-giving Kapha.
Elements: Water & Earth
The Kapha dosha is ruled by water. Your nature is gentle and relaxed—slow and steady is your daily mantra. The languid
language of Kapha dosha is familiar to you. There’s no point in rushing. You’re thorough, soft,
and devoted to your loved ones.
Those with a primarily Kapha constitution don’t get angry often. When all is well, you’re patient and kind, steadfast and
loyal. When imbalanced, you can become insecure and apathetic.
The key to embodying the positive elements of Kapha is to remain active. Stimulating energy and circulation is critical—
whether it’s through movement or eating hot foods that boost circulation.
Physically, Kapha individuals are heavier set, strong, and have thick hair. Your skin is on the oilier side, which means you
have fewer wrinkles than most people. The downside is you may be prone to clogged pores, baggy eyes, and acne.
