Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Yoga is already known for its benefits in transforming and maintaining physique and mental peace. But, nowadays, more and more people are turning to Yoga that helps to attain beauty and acquire a glowing skin. Yoga practices have proven to be effective measures that a person can take for a healthier skin. Whether it is the treatment of hair fall, acne or wrinkles, Yoga seems to have solutions for a variety of problems.
Sarika, a beautician, says, “Nowadays, people want facial treatment for betterment of their features and a glowing skin. I always suggest they perform five major exercises depending upon their requirements. A face massage and facial yogic activities are totally different, as massage involves relaxation of the muscles, while yoga exercises are meant to provide stiffness to the face which prevents wrinkles.” She added, “The hankering for having a sharp jawline has increased among youngsters and Yoga exercises prove to be effective if done for 20-30 minutes a day; it must be continued for 3-4 weeks.”
People rarely put their trust in beauty products as they have toxic products, while Yoga activities are absolutely reliable in that respect. Madhu Gupta, another beautician, says that people with sensitive skin are difficult to treat with beauty products and, hence, they go through Yoga sessions for facial muscle-building, while meditation provides them a glowing skin.
