Yoga has the potential to reduce facial wrinkles and produce a natural ‘face-lift’. This is mainly due to the inverted postures such as the head and handstands.
Doing these postures for a few minutes each day has the potential to reverse the effect of gravity and use it to our advantage.
It also increases the circulation to the face that brings much needed nutrients and oxygen to rejuvenate and remove toxin causing matter. Mentally you will become calmer and your body will not experience stress like effects that will cause you to frown and screw up your face.
Also you will sleep a lot better and this always helps in a fresh ready to go look.
The result is firmer facial muscles, which cause a reduction in wrinkles, and a natural face-lift.
The inverted yoga postures often delay the onset of gray hair or hair fall. This is due to the inverted postures causing an increase in blood supply to the hair follicles in the scalp.
Increased flexibility of the neck produced by the asanas also helps by removing the pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in the neck, therefore giving the head an even greater blood supply to the scalp.
The nerves in the neck supply the scalp muscles and the release of pressure on the nerves in the neck will help the scalp muscles to relax.
