You do yoga because it keeps you limber. After a session, you feel refreshed, renewed, and ready to tackle the day’s challenges.
But did you know yoga may also keep you young?
It’s true. Not only has yoga been scientifically proven to improve health outcomes—which in and of itself can serve to keep you looking young—but it improves you both on the inside and the outside. Here’s how.
In 2010, a meta-study found that yoga “improved health outcomes” to a degree equal to or better than exercise itself. The only area where exercise had the advantage over yoga was in physical fitness, meaning that for any potential beauty-enhancing effects, yoga outperformed even working out.
So how exactly is yoga creating such stunning results for people who practice it? We have a few ideas:
Combine these elements into one yoga session and you begin to see how yoga can keep you looking—and feeling—young. It’s slowing down aging by reducing stress and actively making you a healthier being.
Powerful as it may be, yoga can’t do everything to keep you looking young. It won’t make your skin perfect, for example. But while you tackle a new yoga program, skin treatments like the Venus Swan treatment can help keep you looking as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.
After all, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and cellulite is something even yoga can’t actively do—but it’s still something you can have treated.
