Can yoga really make your face glow? Well, if you believe experts, then–yes, it can. Supplemented with a healthy diet and good lifestyle, yoga can truly make your skin the talk of the town.

Here are some asanas that you can try to release toxins from your body and make your skin better. 

1. Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)

Sarvangasana is one of the most effective asanas when it comes to making your skin glow. This pose aids blood circulation along with keeping your hormones in check. If your skin often breaks out then doing this asana three to five times a day will definitely help.

2. Halasana (Plough Pose)

Halasana is great for calming your mind, reducing stress and fatigue, and improving your digestive process. All of these problems tend to show on your skin and curing them automatically leads to a healthy and glowing visage. This asana is also known to regulate your metabolism and remove toxins from your body.

3. Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)

Select Topics of your interest and let us customize your feed.


Trikonasana is widely known for helping your skin feel refreshed and rejuvenated. This asana opens up your heart, lungs, and chest–which allows more oxygen supply to the skin. This helps in removing toxins, clear out blockages, and kill free radicals leaving you with healthy and glowing skin.

4. Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)

Bhujangasana indirectly helps your skin to be healthy.  This asana allows your heart and lungs to open up, thus improving your breathing. This leads to better blood circulation that aids in removing toxins and free radicals from the body. Doing this asana regularly can delay premature skin ageing, acne, and psoriasis.

5. Matsyasana (Fish Pose)

Matsyasana stretches your muscles along with stimulating the stomach and abdomen. This helps in digestion which in turn reflects well on your skin. The asana also stretches the muscles of your face and throat, which helps in getting rid of that double chin.

So go on, try these asanas and feel the difference in not just your skin but also in your overall health. Be sure to tell us in the comments below how these poses worked out for you.
