Yoga is known to do a lot of wonderful things to your mind and body, but did you know it can work miracles for your skin as well? “Regular practice of yoga can help increase the blood circulation in your body, including that to your face and your head, allowing these parts of your body to naturally benefit from the oxygen you’re giving them,” says Shraddha Iyer, Master Yoga Instructor, Sarva. To get that covetable luminosity, you will have to invest a bit of time and patience. So If 'glowing skin' is on the top of your priority list then include these yoga asanas recommended by Shraddha.
Also known as the Destroyer of Diseases, Matsyasana is a back bending pose that helps with constant back aches, anxiety and fatigue. The best part? Regular practice of this pose helps increase blood circulation and balances your hormones, a leading cause for skin problems in women.
The Plow Pose or Halasana helps you sleep better. The pose allows blood to flow to your face and head, relaxing your mind and allowing your skin to breathe.
A classic relaxation pose, Child’s Pose is super effective in helping you unwind. The position of this pose allows blood and oxygen to flow to your brain, calming and relaxing it. Child’s Pose is also a super easy one which you can do anytime, anywhere.
It goes without saying that your breath controls your mind and keeps a check on how stressed you are, thus directly affecting how much it shows on your skin and hair. Meditate or practice Pranayamas even for a short period of time everyday and it can go a long way in clearing out your skin, improving hair growth and your overall mental state.
