5 Tips for Healthy Glowing Skin

January 31, 2014

Cold temperatures and dry indoor heat can cause havoc to our skin. Our skin is our largest organ and yoga is one of the best ways to restore our skin at this time of the year. Yoga exercises can improve the circulation and blood flow to the skin. The deep breathing that is used whilst doing yoga boosts cell oxygenation and calms the nervous system. Stress has a detrimental effect on the skin, speeding up the ageing process. The following tips can help you achieve healthy glowing skin.

1. Practice postures that increase blood circulation to the head and face, e.g. Adho Mukha Savasana (Dog) and Halasana (Plough).

2. Practice poses that improve the digestive process and detoxification of the body, e.g. Paschmittonasana (East Back Stretch) and Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Twist).

3. Practice facial yoga exercises to tone the facial muscles, e.g. Simhasana (Lion) and Eye Exercises.

4. Practice relaxation and breathing techniques, e.g.Nadi Shodhana and mantra.

5. Smiling is the best and easiest ways to achieve a natural glow. Practising yoga with friends can help you become positive about yourself and make you glow.
