This involves squats and few more postures that lead to the stretching of the muscles. This leads to the sweating. This, in turn, increases the heart beat and ensures proper blood circulation to each and every body part thus making the skin fresh and glowing.
8. BHARADVAJA’S TWIST
This is asana that involves stretching exercises which make the muscles intact. It also leads to proper digestion and thus excretion of toxins. This excretion leaves behind a beautiful and glowing skin. It also makes the tissues visible as beautiful, healthy and glowing skin.
This asana involves forward bending and crossing your hands over your legs. Such forward bending poses make the blood flow proper and faster. This helps in fast removal of the dead skin cells, gives your face a natural and fresh glow and leaves the wrinkles to the bay.
