To bring in International Yoga Day, we have listed some asanas or yoga positions that improve the health of your skin and make it glow. Read on to find out what those asanas are...

Sarvangasana

Sarvangasana is also known as the shoulder stand and is extremely effective when it comes to making the skin glow. Since you need to lift your torso up in the air to perform this asana, it helps promote blood circulation, improve skin texture and eliminate skin dullness.

If you are looking to make your skin glow, then halasana is the one of the best yoga positions for you. By improving the digestive system, this asana helps flush out toxins from the body and in turn makes your skin look healthy and glowing. It is also a healing position for lower back and hip pain that relieves strain on the lower back and boosts metabolism.

Trikonasana

Also known as the Triangle pose, trikosana is super helpful when it comes to improving the health of your skin. It does so by opening up the lungs, chest and heart and supplies more oxygen to the skin so that your skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated.

Ustarasana

Ustarasana is called the camel pose and is extremely helpful in regaining skin glow. The intense bend in the position opens up the rib cage and improves lung capacity. This helps your body inhale more oxygen, thereby improving overall appearance of the skin. Additionally, ustarasana reduces stress and balances the hormones in the body that are responsible for causing acne.
