Yoga Sequence for Glowing Skin

Practicing yoga is a natural method to attaining healthy glowing skin. Creams just mask the outside, while yoga works internally, bringing out your natural beauty from the inside out. People are catching on about the many health and beauty benefits that yoga provides. Therefore it is such a growing industry. The demand has been increasing over the years, and many more yoga studios are popping up. Since the affects are felt just after one class, many individuals become hooked. The hot yoga scene is also booming, as being in a heated studio provides the added bonus of detoxifying your body through sweat. You can find out what the hype is all about in Hot Yoga in Toronto. For those who aren't in Toronto or can't get to a studio, practicing yoga postures from home can also benefit you greatly.

Here are six yoga postures that should be practiced daily to achieve the greatest results. Be sure to hold each posture for as long as you can.

Headstand (Salamba Sirsasana)- All inversions are a great way to plump up your skin and enhance your facial glow. This is because when you're upside down, your blood rushes to your brain and brings nutrients to your face at a deep level.

Warrior I (Virabhadrasana I) - This posture stretches out your body and opens up your heart, which brings in increased circulation and oxygen to your face.

Seated Twist (Ardha Matsyendrasana) - Twisting and squeezing your body detoxifies and gets rid of harmful toxins in your body. The act of releasing a twist brings fresh nutrients and blood to your organs.

Fish Pose (Matsyasana) - This posture is awesome for your face, as you're stretching and toning your neck, throat and facial muscles. You're also stimulating your hormones, which in essence effect the nature of your skin tone.
Bow Pose (Dhanurasana) - This pose opens up your chest bringing in more oxygen to your face and neck, providing you with a natural glow.

Child's Pose (Balasana) - When your head is lower than your heart, you face receives more oxygen, which keeps your face soft and helps to erase wrinkles.
