Wake Up To Yoga
Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that has long been revered for its health and wellness benefits, but did you know it can also do wonders for your skin?
As gentle and spiritual as it is, yoga packs a real punch when it comes to improving your physical and mental health. Regular practice of yoga can have an important impact on our well-being, ranging from increased vitality to improved muscular-skeletal flexibility.
The magic of yoga for your skin, lies in its ability to improved digestion and circulation, which are both key when it comes to glowing, radiant skin.
The gut is intrinsically linked to our overall health and improving digestion with a healthy diet is one step towards a healthier body and mind. Certain yoga poses will also aid digestion, such as Bow pose and Kneeling pose, as well as alternating nose breathing.
Increasing blood circulation through the body is vital for stimulating the skin cells, so try Child’s pose, Fish pose and Shoulder Stand for a boost that will leave skin glowing.
Daily meditation can also help you radiate from within – your mental well-being is improved and a positive attitude can do wonders for your skin health.
As we age, skin loses its elasticity, so yoga facial massage and exercise is a fantastic way to strengthen and tone the muscles in the face. Massage your jaw, forehead and neck to improve skin elasticity and relieve stress. Stretch your lips for a wrinkle workout: pout lips as if to kiss and then smile broadly.
As well as a regular yoga practice, make sure you drink plenty of water to flush out toxins, leaving skin blemish-free.
8 hours of good quality sleep each night is also essential for glowing, healthy skin.
Waking up to yoga in your everyday life, will not only lead you on a path to happiness, but also to skin that is healthier, more radiant and youthful.
