If you’re one of those people who have always wanted to practice yoga but never seem to get around doing it, we believe this post will take you the extra mile.
Even if it sounds strange, practizing yoga can help you avoid breakouts, reduce wrinkles, and let out a natural glow.
A challenging yoga session will free your skin of toxins, opening your pores and detoxifying your skin. When calming down, your blood flow will improve, nourishing your organs, including the skin.
Get started with facial yoga
If you want to experience the magic in real life, here’s a lifting facial yoga routine for you.
Start by making an O shape with your mouth, where both your lips cover your teeth.
Then, raise the corners of your mouth and smile using your cheek muscles. After this, close your eyes and roll them up to the ceiling.
With your eyes still pointing up, create a small O shape with your mouth, and smile.
Slowly tilt your head back as you tighten your body and lift your chest. With long, deep breaths, raise your hands up and over your head. Imagine all your facial muscles aiming for the ceiling.
Once you’ve reached this position, hold tight for thirty seconds. Lower your hands and head with an exhale. Do this twice a day to relax and help your skin.
Yoga for the body
If you want to go further and exercise your whole body, here are some yoga asanas you should try: Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand), Padmasana (Lotus Pose), Halasana (Plow Pose), Ustrasana (Camel Pose), and Shavasana (Corpse Pose). Research the correct way to do them and practice safe and healthy exercise.
Yoga can be beneficial for both your skin and your muscles. It reduces cortisol levels, increases flexibility, and helps reduce wrinkles. You have nothing to lose with this relaxing exercise, also suitable for all levels!
