Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the ancient science of natural medicine that has its origins dating back over 4000 years. It focuses on creating a pristine balance between mind, body, and spirit. It is about balancing one’s soul with Mother Nature and the elements around them. Unlike other medical systems where the problem is the main focus, Ayurveda centers around and aims to treat the wholeness and wellness of the individual.
Modern medicine focuses on destroying pathogenic invaders from outside the body. Ayurveda focuses on making the body's defenses as strong as possible through promoting inner balance. The foundation of this overall balance is three organizing principles called the doshas; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The ancient Ayurvedic texts discuss the doshas in what we would recognize as homeostatic terms. The doshas are regarded as among the first sprouting of the unmanifest field of unconsciousness into the manifest realm of matter.
The three doshas can me defined in terms of broad functions. Vata is the dosha, which is expressed in all motion; Pitta is the one, which is expressed in metabolism, heat production, digestion and energy production; and Kapha gives solidity, structure, and balances the fluid. An excess of the dosha, or a shortage of the dosha can cause disease.
How imbalanced doshas affect the health of the skin and how it can be treated with Exquis Skincare products?

- Imbalance in Pitta results in rashes and inflammatory skin diseases. Exquis Ultra Moisturizer calms and cools down inflamed skin and helps it become normal.
- Imbalance in Kapha results in Oily skin. Exquis Anti-Aging Moisturizer restores oily skin back to its normal healthy state.
