Yoga reduces stress and improves digestion and circulation. When you’re relaxed and getting the most from a healthy diet — and when your body has better blood flow — it shows in your face. Your skin glows!
Pranic energy techniques, (pranic comes from the Sanskrit word "prana" meaning "vital life force) such as the Wind Relieving Pose and the Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique, are great for digestion. Inversion poses like headstand and shoulderstand, increase circulation.
But if these are beyond your comfort zone, here’s an easy way to get your legs above your head. Lie on the floor next to a wall and scoot your butt as close to the wall as possible. Now swing your legs up, placing the back of your heels against the wall. Do this once a day and reap the benefits.
Other easy poses, such as child's pose and fish pose also help bring blood to the head and stimulate the skin.
Yoga offers facial exercises that strengthen and tone the muscles of your face and help fight loss of elasticity that comes from aging. Stretching your lips, and massaging your jaw and brow are great stress releasers that also help maintain elasticity.
