We all know that a healthy diet and moderate exercise is great for our bodies. We know that staying hydrated and moisturized will keep our skin luminous and we know that avoiding the sun will help us avoid skin damage. We know many very specific actions we can take to protect and revitalize our skin, but did you know that these yoga asanas are touted for keeping skin youthful and invigorated? Try these three asanas for your health, your peace of mind and your skin.
The shoulder stand pose is universally recognized as the best asana for luminous skin. By encouraging circulation towards your face, this asana can help rid your visage of fine wrinkles, acne, and dryness. Do this asana a few times daily to see immediate results.
Addressing your guts is the first step in achieving clear, glowing skin. This seated twist awakens your digestive system, urging crucial purges of built-up waste and toxins.
A.K.A. the fish pose, this asana stimulates the thyroid, pineal, and pituitary glands, effectively marshaling discordant hormone levels. This pose also stretches the muscles of the face and neck, encouraging circulation and firmness.
Try these poses in conjunction with your regular workout schedule or take time during your normal workday to relax into them.
