Whether you’re just learning the ABCs of Ayurveda or are already really into it (the most extreme cleanse on earth, anyone?), you can’t get too far without figuring out one thing: your dosha.

According to Ayurveda—the holistic medicine practice from India, of which yoga is only one part—a dosha is an energetic signature that can inform everything from your skin to your personality to your sex drive.

There are three doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha—and though everyone has a little bit of each, your dominant dosha is what Ayurvedic practitioners use to help you figure out the best way for you to eat, exercise, sleep—and savasana. (Just kidding, everyone loves savasana.)

Whether you’re vata, pitta, or kapha, kitchari is the Ayurvedic comfort food of choice—and here’s a recipe. And now that you know your dosha, you can be a better beauty shopper: Here are six Ayurveda skin care brands you need to know.
