When you practice headstand yoga, during this time, the blood flow in the body is more towards the face and the mind, as the body is upside down. During this time, the blood flows rapidly in the skin, making it softer, smoother and glowing. While doing this yoga asana, the body gets the required protein, due to which the face starts to glow. Do this pose, sit on a mat, interlock your fingers of both hands and place it on the head. Start to pull your legs upward by putting weight on the head. Keep your body straight while doing this asana. Once the pressure is on your fingers and the head, you are doing it right. Stop in that position for a while and slowly bring your legs down. Do not come in normal position suddenly as it might lead to a jerk in the body.
