If there is one thing seasoned yoga practitioners are known for, are their great skin. Think of instructors you’ve encountered or enthusiasts you know in real life — it’s likely they all have similarly youthful, radiant skin. Is it the deep, restorative breaths and meditative state that keep wrinkles at bay, or is it the focused flows of movement that challenge the body and increase circulation?
As it turns out, the answer is a little of both. Practicing yoga does wonder for the mind and body. It is the perfect exercise for people who lead busy, stress-filled lives who want to look and feel their best. Yoga, in general improves skin health by reducing stress (a common catalyst to breakouts and fine lines) and removing toxins from the body.
In fact, there are certain asanas (poses) that are especially good at this, and therefore especially good for the skin.
