Face Shapes according to Ayurveda

Ayurveda describes the 3 kinds of beauties:

Ayurveda beauty

The vata woman has a thin, charming, vivacious, vibrant face with lively eyes that express spontaneity, sensitivity and easily light up with exhilaration. She is normally underweight and finds it difficult to gain weight.

The pitta woman has a medium sized, sharp-featured face that reflects confidence, strength, a fire that promises volatile anger or extreme lovingness. The dark, smoldering eyes express intelligence and enterprise – a willingness to act. She has a medium build and loses weight evenly and moderately.

The kapha woman has a round, plump face with gentle contours that reflect an unjudging, forgiving nature. The large soft eyes express a serene, accepting sweet nature. She is on the heavy side and has difficulty in losing weight.

Whatever the shape and size of your face, cherish yourself. Cultivate healthy habits. The most beautiful face is the one that radiates happiness.
