6 best yoga poses for a glowing skin



It is often said that you must be healthy and well from the inside to be able to look good on the outside.

Yoga not only works on your external looks but also purifies the organs within to give you a glowing skin.

Yoga asanas when performed perfectly can lead to longevity and anti ageing. Below are 6 asanas that are perfect for a glowing skin.

1. ​Sarvangasana – shoulder stand

It helps in improving skin texture and quality by promoting blood circulation towards your face. Practicing this asana 3 to 5 times a day will help your skin get rid of pimple, acne, wrinkles and dullness.

2. Halasana – plough pose

This asana works on your digestive system that automatically leads to a heathy glowing skin.

3. Adho mukha svanasana – downward dog

While releasing tension from all the muscles, this helps in getting the blood to reach your face. You will notice your face is flushed with healthy oxygenated blood post the pose. You can hold this for 30 secs or more, whatever you are comfortable with.

4. Trikonasana – the triangle pose

This asana opens up the lungs, chest and heart. It supplies more oxygen to the skin and hence the skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated.

5. Bharadvaja’s twist

Digestive health is a must for achieving healthy and nourished skin. The seated twist helps in removing toxins and other harmful substances from the organs. Clearing the body of waste is always good for the skin.

6. Headstand

Headstand is performed by reversing the flow of gravity, by letting your skin hang in the opposite direction. The inverted position of a headstand also flushes fresh nutrients and oxygen to the face, creating a glowing effect on the skin.
