The term ‘normal’ refers to skin that is well-balanced. People with this skin type may have oily qualities in their T-zone, which includes the forehead, nose, and chin. Despite this, sebum and skin moisture are in equilibrium. Normal skin types would be neither too dry or excessively greasy, but can experience very mild dryness or oiliness.

Ayurveda & normal skin

Your skin type and condition is believed to be a reflection of your internal health physical and mental, in Ayurveda the main focus is to maintain balance in times of imbalance through different external and internal practices. For the normal skin types, maintaining this balance is the main focus, so hydration and sun protection are important. Protecting the skin from oxidative stress with the use of vitamin C can be greatly beneficial to normal skin types. Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry is high in vitamin C and can be used externally as a serum or oil, and internally as a juice or powder. In Ayurveda, foods that are high in Vitamin C help keep your Doshas or bodily functions well balanced, strengthening your immunity and helping with overall skin health.
