“Pitta skin is typ­i­cally smooth, oily and warm. It tends to be most sen­si­tive and prone to red­ness, ag­gra­va­tion and sun sen­si­tiv­ity,” says Hole­cek. When healthy it will have a rosy glow. When it’s im­bal­anced, signs of in­flam­ma­tion and red­ness will oc­cur. To calm it, use prod­ucts with cool­ing, anti-in­flam­ma­tory in­gre­di­ents such as rose and cu­cum­ber. “Aloe vera is [also] great for pitta skin, as are es­sen­tial oils of san­dal­wood, jo­joba and moringa, with their nu­tri­tional con­tent but light­weight na­ture,” ex­plains Hole­cek. “Pitta types should choose sun­flower or co­conut oils for body mois­tur­is­ing, and look to honey and chamomile com­presses for flare-ups such as rosacea.”
