Mental peace and emotional balance are as important as topical skincare to radiate beauty from within through yourskin.
Here is a selection of Yogic poses and yogic exercises which when coupled with good Ayurvedic skincare tips can produce a startling effect on your skin:
Pranayam: Breathing right is the beginning on the path to healthy skin. Kapalbharti pranayam is known to be the most suited for this purpose. Actress Shilpa Shetty has been advocating Kapalbharti and you can easily learn how to do this by doing some research online. 15 minutes every day should be enough you keep your skinglowing and to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay.
Tadasana (Mountain Pose): Another breathing related pose that lets you focus on deep, rhythmic breathing—an essential element of healthy skin.
Uttanasana: Forward-bending poses such as this one make blood flow into the face faster, bringing with it oxygen and other helpful nutrients that fight free radicals, encourage skin cell renewal, and give your face a rosy glow.
Bharadvaja's Twist: Twisting positions such as this one are great for improving digestion, which ensures good excretion of toxins out of the body thus improving the Rasa( tissue) visible as healty glowing skin.
Utkatasana: Challenging poses like this one make the heart beat faster, increasing the circulation of blood flow throughout the body and prompting the skin to sweat out impurities.
Note: Some of the above asanas should be done only after warming up and is possible in consultation with a yoga expert to avoid injuries due to incorrect posture.
