Yoga For Beauty

In a world full of mass-marketed beauty products, endless fad diets and failed New Year’s resolutions, wouldn’t you like an easier way to think more positively about your body? A natural, healthy way that is free and quick? I know what you’re thinking, this sounds too good to be true. Nope, you’re wrong. Yoga is a virtually effortless method for clearer pores, tighter skin and higher happiness levels. Try yoga for beauty benefits and much more. 

Stress Relief

When you’re stressed, your body take the brunt of it. Stress has all sorts of terrible side effects. It leads to an increased chance of heart attack, your immune system isn’t as effective at preventing disease, head and backaches are more common, and depression can occur. Not to mention your skin is likely to break out in acne and rashes. Who feels beautiful and confident in her body with all this going on? By doing the yoga exercises, you regulate your blood pressure, you boost your immunity and raise your levels of serotonin (the happy chemical!). Just fifteen minutes of stretches to start your day can drastically ease stress. 

Flexibility

If a woman isn’t confident in her appearance, she will slump her shoulders and walk with her head to the ground, attempting to hide herself. Yoga solves this problem on two levels, physical and mental. Not only does doing yoga give you confidence in your body’s abilities, but it improves your posture and strengthens your muscles. You won’t want to hide after learning the simple bends and twists! The moves, over time, will tighten your skin and decrease wrinkles. In the beginning, you probably won’t be able to touch your toes while standing, or do the splits, but with an applied practice, you can become that woman who struts down the street. Embrace your inner and outer strength, and other people will notice the change as well.

Nutrition

For those serious about learning yoga, they eat beneficial foods to improve their form. For those using yoga to naturally beautify themselves, eating the yogis’ food is a two-birds-with-one-stone scenario. As an example, yogis will eat Greek yogurt for the protein, oatmeal, since it burns quickly, and almonds to increase energy. Lucky for you, Greek yogurt prevents wrinkles, oatmeal lessens skin irritation, and almonds boost metabolism, getting you one step closer to your ideal weight. Would you look at that? Eating the right foods will help you improve your yoga practice, which in turn helps you look more beautiful naturally, while also building your confidence in the sport, which makes you want to try harder, so you’ll eat the right foods…see a pattern here? It’s a wonderful cycle that you can begin today, for free!

This isn’t a huge corporation pitch trying to swindle you out of your money. This is a simple and healthy lifestyle change. You can start at any time right in your own home, courtesy of hundreds of free tutorials on YouTube or by borrowing DVD’s from your local library. Reap the benefits of yoga for beauty today.
