Yoga for healthy and glowing skin

The physical, mental and emotional balance from yoga works similarly to a regular skincare routine, but better. It will naturally enhance your skin, creating a radiant glow. Yoga helps to stimulate working system of our body mechanic such as organ and blood circulation. It flushes out and eliminates toxins, regulates the digestive system and maintains blood circulation through poses and breath work.

Many yoga postures rejuvenate and revitalise the body which in turn firm and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Eagle Pose

Good for inner balance and harmony. It helps to feel grounded in who you are on the inside, building your sense of self-worth. Wrapping the limbs is an expression of self-love and nurturing. This pose helps to maintaining balance to makes legs, knees and ankles strong.

One Legged Downward-Facing Dog

This asana also helps in reversing the blood circulation from head to toe, thus helping your skin remain clear and wrinkle free. It also helps to tone and strengthen the standing leg, improves flexibility and opens the hips.

Triangle Pose

This is possibly the best yoga asana for glowing skin. It opens up the lungs, chest and heart, and supplies more oxygen to the skin and hence the skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated. Also hip opening can help the joints of the lower back, hips and legs to come into better alignment. When hips are tight or causing mis-alignment, it can have a big effect on the back, on knees and even feet.
