AYU EVENING WIND DOWN
To prepare for sleep, bring your AYU evening kit to bed. Massage your feet with a bit of Vata body oil. Lay down - if possible with your feet and legs up against a wall - while wearing the eye mask. Rest for 5-10 minutes. Use a towel to remove excess oil if you find your feet too oily and you want to avoid oil on your sheets. Sleep well. Vata products are perfect to use in the evening before going to sleep as the scents can influence your senses and have a grounding effect.

Doshas are the name of the dynamic life energies that shape our body and personality type - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - with usually one, or sometimes two doshas, being predominant. The unique composition of these doshas changes in response to what we eat, feel, smell and other sensory influences. By being aware of our dosha type and of how we treat our body, we can make the right choices to balance these energies, feel calmer and more harmonious, which contributes to stress-free, beautiful skin.
