Do Yoga, Not Botox

Wrinkles are a fact of getting older, but there are several actions we can take to slow down the signs of aging. Living a healthy lifestyle, avoiding cigarettes, and wearing sunscreen will prevent you from aging prematurely, and standing on your head could also help keep your skin looking fresh.

Hear me out. Yoga poses that involve positioning your feet over your head, known as inversions, allow blood to flow to your head and improve circulation. Performing inversions can help relieve headaches and depression, increase upper-body strength, and also naturally reduce your wrinkles if practiced regularly. Don't just take it from me; here's what Countess LuAnn de Lesseps (of The Real Housewives of New York) said about her skincare regimen.

I do a yoga headstand every morning. I don't do Botox. Headstands are great for getting the circulation going and giving tone to your muscles in the face.

If you're new to headstands, check out my video tutorial for conquering this pose. Soon you'll be mastering seven headstands, feeling stronger, and perhaps your skin will be glowing, too.

I agree 100%. Whenever I do anytime type of inversion especially with headstands my skin glows. In fact from doing yoga I feel like my laugh lines have faded. Yoga just is amazing all around.

I have a hard time with headstands when I was a kid. It made my head hurt and I don't like the pressure on my head. But I guess it's worth a try.

I love inverted poses... shoulder stand, head stand and hand stands are my favorites. Especially for stomach aches - these really are the only things that will help me. Hot yoga does wonders for the skin.... everyone glows after hot yoga (and I don't mean the sweat either!)

I love yoga, but headstands scare me. I have a fear of breaking my neck!

I never believed this, but as I've increased the intensity and frequency of my yoga practice, I've noticed that my skin is absolutely glowing when I get home from class - no joke. I sleep better too.
