Yoga as a Cure for Acne

Aug 17, 2007
It is only a very small and very lucky few who have never suffered the stress and strain of acne in some form or another. Be it an unfortunately constant barrage of stubborn pimples or just the odd zit every now and again, most of us are familiar with those dreaded little spots.

Although there is no single cause for acne, or a single, simple cure, a great deal of research points to stress, both of the mind and body, as a causing culprit. If this is indeed the case, then no amount of topical pseudo-solutions will help. The problem will need to be addressed in a more natural way and there are a number of steps you can take in order to do this.

Often noted for its aid to relaxation, yoga can be used to help calm and de-stress the body and mind which, although not a cure for acne, can certainly assist in alleviating the root causes.

Yoga attempts to align parts of the body and cause them to work in their natural, harmonious form. By practicing yoga, in an effort to clear up acne, you will increase the blood flow to your face as well as flushing away various toxic agents. This will allow essential nutrients to flow smoothly and unhindered through your skin. In turn, skin will be better able to heal any existing spots or indeed any other problems and fight harder against the onset of additional infections.

There are a large number of resources available which will help you to learn the concepts of yoga and the various positions involved in it. One yoga position which has been linked to clearing up acne is the supine position. Perhaps the most recognised position, it involves sitting down, placing the right heel on the left thigh, close to the hip joint and doing the same with the left heel. Breathing should be deep; in through your nose and out through your mouth.

By implementing this supine position, along with other aspects of yoga, you may be able to control your acne. Your stress levels will be reduced and your blood circulation increased, both of which contribute to not only glowing skin but a more balanced body on the whole.

There are various other natural ways to help control acne apart from yoga. These include detoxification of the body, home made facial scrubs and washes, protecting skin from the elements and changes in diet.

Acne does not have to be a problem. There is a wide variety of treatments available and there will be a treatment that works for you.
