Fight Pimples & Detoxify Your Skin With Yoga!

It is a well-known fact that yoga is a great holistic remedy for overall health and happiness. But were you aware that yoga could also fight pimples and help you achieve great skin? To begin with, yoga lowers cortisol levels in the body and releases stress. By practicing yoga regularly, you will be promoting improved blood circulation to the face and enhancing other bodily functions. Find out how you can control pimples with these 3 simple yoga poses (asanas) –

1. Simple Breathing Exercise Pose (Kapalbhati)

Steps

Sit on the floor with your legs crossed and maintain a straight back. Practice deep passive breathing and exhale forcefully, so that the stomach is pulled in.

How It Helps

This simple breathing exercise aids digestive disorders such as constipation and in turn, purifies the blood, leaving you with glowing, clear skin. Though the results may not be immediate, breathing frequently in this pose will leave you acne-free in no time.

2. Wind-Relieving Pose (Pawan Muktasana)

Steps

Lie down flat on the floor and pull your knees to your chest. Wrap your knees with your arms and hold your breath to the count of 5. Slowly, release your legs back to the floor as you breathe out and relax. You can even alternate one knee at a time.

How It Helps

Sometimes when the food is not digested properly, there is an embarrassing build-up of toxins that could lead to flatulence. Most of this build-up releases through the skin and ends up clogging pores, causing acne breakouts. By getting into this pose, you are improving digestive circulation and channeling the toxins via other outlets so that it doesn’t affect the skin.

3. Child Pose (Bal asana)

Steps

Nestle your torso between your thighs and place your forehead on the floor. Lengthen your tailbone away from the torso and place your hands by your sides with the palms facing up. This is a resting pose, so relax and breathe normally.

How It Helps

With the amount of stress that we deal with, it is important to incorporate some calming practices regularly, to reduce skin-flare ups. Heightened stress can lead to overactive sebaceous glands, causing breakouts.
