Yoga has a sly, clever way of short circuiting the mental pattern that causes anxiety.Baxter Bell
Today people are spending their hard-earned money on purchasing creams and serums to enhance their facial beauty. These companies promise to give you wrinkle-free skin, fairer skin etc. Readers, don’t ever believe them. A large number of Beauty parlours are sprouting up. They make false promises of making you glow in 1 hour. Please don’t listen to them. People of the high-income group are going for Botox and cosmetic surgery to look younger, these have severe side effects. Ageing gracefully can be dreaded statement in this world of innumerable ageing creams and serums loaded with chemicals.
Our face works hard
It helps us see, breath, chew, speak, laugh, cry, grin, smile, frown, etc. It gets hit by the sun, rain, wind, snow, scratches. Face is the mirror of the whole body. Whatever is going inside our body and mind gets reflected on the face. The face absorbs and stores a lot of tension. To help relieve facial tension we need exercise. We need to be fit and healthy for the face to glow. By applying makeup or beauty creams, we can beautify our face for a short time. Try to keep yourself away from all artificial things and go the natural way.
Breathing exercises and yoga are the best way to make your skin glow with zero monetary investment. With yoga, you can get rid of fine lines and fat from your face that too chemical-free.
Yoga means addition- addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul.Amit Ray
Benefits of yoga on skin and whole body
- Yoga is a holistic approach to health and well being.
Yoga helps in keeping muscles of the face tighter, rejuvenated, fresher, looking younger, lesser sag, just as yoga does to the muscles all over the body, by giving oxygen to the facial muscles.
- Helps slow down the aging process
As we grow older, we witness fine lines and wrinkles forming with time and this makes us look aged. With yoga, we can get rid of these fine lines eventually and get tighter and toned skin.
- Helps release tension
Yoga helps us be calm. Inhale the future exhale the past. Our sedentary lifestyles have led us to sit at one place for more than 8 hours leading excessive tension on spinal cord, neck and core muscles. Yoga helps release tension in these areas and help us relax.
- Helps eliminate double chin
If you hate looking at the mirror with a dreaded double chin, yoga might be just the perfect deal. Neck exercises can help us deal with the stubborn fat on the chin.
Yoga can get you naturally glowing skin and toned facial muscles. You don’t need any anti-ageing surgeries and other chemical interventions. Sweat today, smile tomorrow. I follow this. I rarely go to a beauty parlour and have faith in yoga. The secret of my beauty and youth is only yoga.
When I used to go for my Yoga class, people had the impression that I was recently married and didn’t have any children. Being regular with Yoga has kept all my signs of ageing at bay.
