Winter months can wreak havoc on our skin.

The cold temperatures, dry indoor heat and stress of the holidays all add to inflammation and skin problems. Yoga to the rescue! Yoga gives us a youthful glow and restores our skin during this time of year.

Have you ever noticed how your skin just seems to shine after a yoga practice? Sun Salutations, Forward Bends and Inversions all improve circulation and blood flow. Our skin is our largest organ and getting our body moving is one of the best ways to nourish it.

Stress can be one of the leading contributors to skin problems. The deep breathing we use while we practice yoga boosts oxygen in our body and relaxes the nervous system. Regularly practicing yoga calms us down which reduces the inflammation and stress that speeds up the aging of our skin.

Try this Yoga Glow routine to nourish your skin from within…
