Acne and Yoga
Effect of Yoga on Acne
As noted, physical activity is important for the treatment of all health conditions, including acne. On a purely physical level, exercise can increase circulation and help the body rid itself of the toxins it carries within, and often times these toxins come out as acne. In addition to helping the body function more properly on a physiological level, yoga can help with the physical ilness' manifestations through the meditative component inherent in a yoga practice as well.
Side Effects and Warnings
Hatha yoga is generally at least as safe as any other stretching-based exercise program. However there are a few hatha yoga positions, such as the headstand, that can cause injury when they are performed by a person who isn’t yet sufficiently advanced in yoga, or who has certain health problems, such as a detached retina. A properly qualified instructor can help you avoid injury, taking your own individual health status into account.
