When it comes to the practice of Yoga, the benefits to mind and body are plentiful – improved flexibility and body tone, weight loss, and stress relief come to mind. But did you know that Yoga is also known for enhancing the health of skin? That’s just one of many reasons why we think Yoga deserves a place in any healthy lifestyle – or skincare routine, for that matter!
Yoga benefits skin through the same means it improves the body’s overall wellness. The deep breathing involved in Yoga practice improves blood circulation throughout the body, including to the skin – your body’s largest organ. Breathing exercises are known to help reduce stress, which often manifests itself in the skin. Perspiration, especially during Bikram Yoga (also called “hot Yoga”) releases toxins from the pores and imparts a healthy glow. And many Yogis believe that inverted postures can help with sagging, fine lines, and general aging of the skin by further increasing circulation to the face.
A few skincare tips for aspiring Yogis from the experts at Actifirm: Before Yoga, cleanse skin thoroughly with a face wash like Actifirm Antioxidant Cleanser. Make sure you drink lots of water prior to and throughout your workout. After exercise, cleanse again with your favorite Actifirm cleanser. If skin seems irritated from excessive perspiration and heat, try a treatment like Actifirm Active Skin Soother. This gel formula soothes with Aloe Vera and calms with mushroom extract – for added refreshment, try Active Skin Soother chilled.
We hope you’ll get out and enjoy the health and wellness benefits of Yoga at the upcoming DFW Free Day of Yoga – and discover glowing skin along the way!active skin soother, antioxidant cleanser, body tone, Dallas, dfw, flexibility, Fort Worth, glowing skin, healthy lifestyle, Yoga
