Can Yoga help relieve eczema symptoms?

Reducing stress is one of the key ingredients to successfully managing eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.  Could Yoga help?
Read on to discover why it could be your stress-busting friend in 2024!... 

Improves the Mind-Body Connection: mindful movement, controlled breathing, and meditation are all ways Yoga can help achieve a better awareness of your body. This helps with stress reduction, a significant factor in triggering eczema symptoms.   

Reduces Cortisol Levels: Yoga provides a sanctuary to help unwind, releasing tension and promoting relaxation. As stress levels decrease, so does the production of cortisol, a hormone known to aggravate skin conditions. Gentle yoga poses and stretches, coupled with our comfortable Living Craft Organic Cotton Leggings, can be particularly effective.

Improves Circulation and Detoxification: The gentle movements practiced in yoga stimulate blood flow, enhancing circulation throughout the body. Improved blood flow ensures a more efficient transport of nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, promoting healing.  

Breathing Techniques Improve Skin Health: Breathing techniques in yoga, calm the mind and promote skin cell renewal for a healthier complexion and overall skin condition. For the best breathwork practice, it's crucial to choose the right bra for sensitive skin to ensure freedom and mobility in the rib cage. Check out our super soft Organic Cotton Underwear range for some great options.

Promotes Holistic Wellness: Beyond the physical postures, yoga encourages a holistic approach to wellness. Encouraging a more balanced and nourishing diet, staying hydrated, and getting adequate sleep – all crucial for maintaining healthy skin.   
Community and Support: Engaging in yoga classes or group exercise provides an opportunity for individuals with eczema to connect with others facing similar challenges. The sense of community and support can be empowering, fostering a positive mindset conducive to healing.  

Conclusion: Yoga can be a great ally in managing eczema and soothing skin irritation. Especially when practiced alongside a healthy lifestyle, avoiding common triggers, and wearing the right, breathable, thoughtfully designed, super-soft soothing clothing. Our GOTS certified organic cotton baselayers, underwear and Yoga pants are the perfect solution.
