What excellent anti-aging crap!
The latest buzz is about hot yoga. This uses similar position as hatha yoga in a hot and sweaty situation. The room is actually heated up to help your muscles stretch better. It also encourages you to workup a sweat to flush toxins out of your body naturally. We know toxins are bad for our skin. Hot yoga MAY be a great way to rid of them, but please make sure you don’t get dehydrated as that can be counter productive for the skin, no bull!
Pilates is another form of exercise to benefit your skin, beauty and perspective along with your body. According to WebMD, pilates movements are meant to strengthen you from the core.
