Relaxing yoga helps you find balance and serenity. Yogic breathing and poses unburden your body of tension locks created in it all day long.
But do not confuse it with sleeping. Relaxation yoga is not lazily lying down and chilling. It is a structured and conscious format of taking rest after a continued effort.
The process results in revitalizing your nerves and brings together scattered energy in your body. It helps you to completely give in to gravity, calm your mind, and take in the life force through deep breathing.
What to do:
Wash your face no more than 3 times a day. And use a gentle face wash that cleans your skin but doesn’t strip it. Harsh facewashes will give you that squeaky clean feeling but they strip your skin of all oil (even the good stuff), making your skin work overtime to produce even more oil. Oh no, not again!!
Look for Key Ingredients. According to Dr. Bailey, the best facial cleansers for acne should have at least one of these key ingredients: salicylic acid, glycolic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
Cleansers with these ingredients can penetrate your pores and eliminate pore-clogging impurities like dead skin cells, makeup, excess oil and bacteria that irritate skin and make acne worse. “Acne cleansers with these ingredients will gradually unclog pores, reduce the size of existing blackheads and slow or stop the formation of new ones,” she says.
Bathing in ancient India was exalted as an elaborate ritual. Archaeologists in Mohenjo Daro have uncovered large, advanced, pool-like structures with elaborate staircases deemed as public baths.
Ayurveda describes bathing as a therapeutic, healing experience that restores physical energy to the body, removes accumulated toxins, sweat and dirt from the skin, and relaxes the mind by balancing one’s emotions.
