Yoga Improves Skin Health

Practicing yoga does wonders for the mind and the body. As skin guru Dr. Nicholas Perricone wrote in The Clear Skin Prescription, “It is the perfect exercise for people who lead busy, stress-filled lives who want to look and feel their best.”

Yoga in general improves skin health by reducing stress and removing toxins from the body. It is also one of the most effective things we can do to help our skin to stay beautiful and glowing. Making yoga for radiant skin a regular part of your lifestyle is possible by incorporating it into your everyday routine.

One simple way is to start out simple, taking a break from the day or before you go to bed at night. Lie on your back palms facing the sky, close your eyes and breathe through the nose. Let your entire body rest to fully reduce all the stress and tension in the body 2-5 min.

There are numerous yoga poses that work to reduce stress and create a glowing skin. Adding a yoga Class once or twice a week or setting up a private yoga session can help you meet these goals.

In addition there are several other habits you can implement into your life so that you can enjoy yoga for radiant skin:

  • Drink more water. Have 8 ounces first thing in the morning and Keep a large glass next to your bed. Hydration helps give your skin a healthy lustrous glow.
  • Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep most nights. Everyone is different so find the amount of sleep you need to feel sufficiently rested. Although this might seem challenging, due to the busyness of life, overtime getting enough sleep will affect the health of your skin in a positive way.
  • Consider getting facials at a skin care salon as part of your regular routine. Facials work to rid your skin of impurities and help to produce a youthful, healthy glow.

After putting all these tips into action, you will begin to notice a big difference. Your skin will look younger and feel more vibrant!
