Yoga Poses for healthy and Glowing Skin

Achieving that extra glowing skin can give ladies a run for their money. Especially, if you are of a kind that is easily captivated with the greatly marketed, flashy cosmetics and other beauty products to take care of your skin. However, to be really honest, natural glow costs you nothing but a little effort.


We look up to the celluloid beauties as our idols for their great looks and skin. Well, they do deserve our attention for their efforts to appear fabulous on screen but what we actually need to learn from them is the hard work they put in to maintain a healthy regime. If you follow some of the Hollywood biggies like Miranda Ker, Jennifer Lopez and are crazy about our desi divas like Kareena Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty and Malaika Arora, then you might also know that they religiously perform Yoga every single day. They swear by its benefits. Yoga not just strengthens and tones your body but also improves blood circulation, which in turn distributes nutrients evenly to the whole body. Yoga serves as a detoxifier to your body and chucks of any kind of dullness, acne or discoloration from the face. Since Yoga activates metabolism, so, when the body becomes healthy from within, the face becomes the mirror of your health.

Root of Skin Problems

Generally, ladies complain of various skin related issues like wrinkles, acne, pimples and dull skin. Some also complain of premature ageing and easily panic when the cosmetics don’t really show the expected results. What you really need to understand here is its root cause. An unhealthy lifestyle like - smoking, drinking, drug addiction, skipping meals or consuming too much fast food are the major reasons that cause dark, dull and acne prone skin. Hormonal imbalance in our body also causes acne and pimply skin. And most importantly, improper digestion is the direct reason for most of your body and skin problems.

To get the most coveted glow on your cheeks, you firstly need to shun all these habits that cause skin issues and start Yoga for a clear and glowing skin. That perfectly pink shine will naturally set in once your digestion improves through regularly performing Yoga poses that are great for supple and illuminating skin.
