Yoga is a great way to detox and be mindful of your body, but it's also important to take care of your skin! Your skin is a mirror to what is going on internally and if you are experiencing challenges with your skin, or feel it's dull or lacks lustre, perhaps it's time to try detox yoga.
In this post, I’ll share how detox yoga benefits skin and a few specific yoga poses to add to your home practice.
What is Detox Yoga?
Detox yoga is a type of yoga that helps your body rid itself of toxins. Toxins can come from the food you eat, the air you breathe, and even the products you use on your skin. Over time, these toxins can build up in your body and cause problems like fatigue, headaches, and even skin problems.
Detox yoga helps improve the function of the body’s organs, specifically the liver and kidneys. When these organs are functioning properly, they help to remove toxins from the body and promote healthy skin.
In addition to improving organ function, detox yoga also helps to improve collagen and elastin production in the skin. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are responsible for keeping skin looking firm and elastic. As we age, collagen and elastin production decreases, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin.
By practicing detox yoga regularly, you can help increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in youthful-looking skin.

When it comes to yoga poses for detoxifying the skin, there are a few that stand out:
Any yoga twists are great for massaging the internal organs.
Camel Pose is another excellent pose for detoxifying the skin by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
Inversions such as headstands and shoulder stands help to flush out toxins from the body and improve circulation to the face which can give you a healthy glow.
Kapalabhati breathing aka ‘breath of fire’ or ‘Skull Shining Breath’ is a detox yoga breathing technique that stimulates the digestive fire to release stagnant toxins and flushes the skin giving it a radiant glow.
