How Exercise Affects Your Skin


By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin,. In addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells.

Which exercises will give me glowing skin?

Facial yoga works in two key ways to ensure that you always have healthy skin:

1) Our face is made of muscles that sag with age. Facial yoga strengthens these facial muscles, thus ensuring our skin stays firm.

2) It enhances blood circulation which results in glowing skin that looks fresh and plump.

Here are three facial yoga exercises you need to try out right away:

  1. The big ‘O’

Sit straight and widen your eyes along with stretching your lips out into the shape of ‘O’. Hold this for as long as you can. You can start off with 10 seconds and slowly increase that time to 30 seconds. This exercise is perfect to increase blood circulation to provide your skin with a healthy glow while keeping the appearance of fine lines at bay.

  1. Pout and smile

This one is fairly simple! Start by pouting and then smiling wide afterwards. Do the pout-and-smile exercise as fast as you can. You can keep at it for as long as you wish. However, try to go for 10 repetitions minimum, if you want to start seeing the benefits. Not only will this enhance blood circulation, but will also strengthen your jaw muscles for that perfect jawline.

  1. Puffer fish face

Fill your mouth up with as much air as possible. Puff up your cheeks to accommodate more air. You can also place two fingers on your lips to keep the air from escaping. Now, shift the air from one side to the other with as much speed as possible. Practise this for a couple of minutes every day to achieve glowing skin and fuller cheeks.

So, include these facial yoga exercises into your daily workout routine and see the results within weeks!
