Did you know yoga had an impact on your skin too?
Well, of course it has, yoga just like working out or eating, anything that has an impact on your body impacts your skin and it’s not just the non toxic skin care routine you’re doing.
In fact, yoga has many benefits for your skin. Yoga increases your blood circulation which is essential in order to oxygenate your cells, providing nutrients to your organs and you know, skin is the largest of them all. By oxygenating your cells, it improves the evacuation of toxins. Therefore, relieving your body of any harmful substance in your body as well as puffiness, keeping it light, healthy and fresh.
Practising yoga on a regular basis may also increase the evenness of your skin which would give you a natural, healthy glow. Yoga is all about breathing, and controlling your breathing will help you to boost your cell regeneration by oxygenating them in-depth.
Last but not least, yoga will help you deal with daily stress. According to a study from the Mental Health Foundation, about 74% of people in the UK have felt stressed at some point over the last year and they’ve felt unable to cope with it. Stress is often underestimated and should be treated. It is one of the worst enemies of our health.
Yoga promotes breath control, core and balance exercises, relaxation, meditation and positive thinking which can only benefit you.
What we suggest is to get a slow start with it. If you don’t feel comfortable and/or confident to join a yoga class, why not check some Youtube videos and try them at home first?
There are tons of beginner-friendly videos to introduce you to yoga.
Our personal recommendation is to start your day with Sun Salutation, also known as Surya Namaskar. It will allow your body and mind to wake up gently from their long slumber. Plus, it doesn’t take much time at all, it’s a small investment for great results.
Once you get comfortable enough, you may want to broaden your horizons and join yoga classes. It could be a good way to get different perspectives on how to practice from yoga peers.
