Ayurvedic Dosha – Pitta Dominance

People who have a dominant Pitta constitution typically have a moderate body size and level of physical activity. They are strong-willed and ambitious. They may become short-tempered, irritable and aggressive when under stress. They are believed to be more prone to skin problems, such as sunburn and other skin irritations, particularly in summer because they are not tolerant of heat and sun.
