Your skin is one of the first things people notice so it’s important to have it looking great; the following are some of the yoga asanas for glowing skin.

Yoga for skin

Headstand

Performing the headstand yogasan speeds the blood flow to the face and the brain; this way it stops the sagging of the skin and also helps to reduce fine lines. As it reverses the effect of gravity, it also brings radiance to the face.

Bow pose

In this pose, the body bends in such a way that it assumes the shape of a bow. Performing this yogasana stimulates the digestive system and increases the flow of oxygen to the lungs. It also stretches the spine and core, thus helping to release the toxins from the blood and purify the skin.

Yoga for skin

Plough pose

In order to perform this yogasana, you need to lie down on your stomach and stretch your head towards the sky while pushing your upper body. Doing this yogasana stimulates the thyroid gland and regulates the hormones in the body.

Breathing exercise

Controlling breathing through counts will help your mind to rejuvenate. As a result, your skin will look beautiful and stress-free.

Bharadvajasana (Twisted seated pose)

Cross your legs and sit on the mat with both your hands extended on your sides. Inhale deeply and strengthen your spine. Now shift your left hand from the mat and put it on your right thigh and twist your torso to the right. As you twist, exhale.
