Oily/Large Pores (Kapha)

Hormones and genetics play major roles in determination of skin type, as genetics often determine hormonal make-up.

 

kapha.pngAyurveda has its own terminology for skin types and KAPHA is the word used to describe thick, lubricated and well-nourished skin, or ‘oily,’ put simply.

Oily skin comes with having excess shine reflected on the surface of the skin, more noticeable (and larger) pores and more frequent blemish breakouts caused by dirt mixing with oil and trapping in the pores.

Many people think that oily skin is all bad news, but there is one benefit: visible signs of aging are usually delayed for those with Kapha skin type!

How does someone get oily skin? Hormones & genetics play major roles in determination of skin type, as genetics often determine hormonal make-up. Lifestyle choices also have an impact; things like diet and environmental pollution can affect the skin’s appearance.

What type of hormones? Androgens, have you heard of them? They are a male hormone, but exist in both males and females—depending on the amount of androgens a person has, the amount of sebum will be determined. Sebum is what sits on pores and puts off a shine, making skin appear oily and what many people find difficult to deal with from a comfort level as well as self confidence level.

Kapha skin may be oily, but that does not mean it is hydrated, oily skin needs moisturizer too! The best way to improve Kapha skin is to use active ingredients which tighten pores and implement products that keep skin free of debris to smooth and balance skin.
