Yoga poses for a beautiful skin

Yoga has a very positive effect on our skin. It improves the blood circulation and flushes out the toxins from our body, which imparts a glow to our skin. I have been practicing yoga since a long time and can vouch for this fact. Besides this, yoga has a very soothing effect on our body, mind and soul. 

Following are a few poses which give that much needed glow to our skin

1. Ustrasana

2. Bhujangasana  

3. Matsyasana

4. Dhanurasana

5. Trikonasana

6. Uttanasana

7. Halasana

8. Shavasana

Besides these, there are some pranayamas which I have found are extremely beneficial for overall well being like Kapalbhati, Anulom Vilom, Narishodan Pranayama, Bhastrika.

One Technique which I have found really useful is every morning when I get up, I just lie on the bed for one minute with my head dangling down from the side of the bed !
The kind of blood rush you get to your face is amazing. So do try it !

So keep practicing the above poses and over a period of time you will realize the difference it makes to your skin. Ofcourse this should be coupled with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle choices.

Happy Yoga to you all !!
