The skin is the outer layer of the human body that is designed to protect the body from various foreign objects, infections and disease. The skin wraps around the body, such that it covers the entire body from head to toe. The skin is also responsible for thermal regulation. It allows heat to be maintained within the body during times of cold and allows sweating and radiation during times of heat. The skin may be one of the most important of our sensory organs, but to most of us it simply is the aesthetic value that we consider, and sadly there is an obsession with white skin. In the last decade this demeaning obsession with fairness has somewhat declined with the rise of African American and dark skinned supermodels. The use of yoga for fair skin is not really a remedy, as yoga is simply a healthy discipline that can help restore health and eliminate certain conditions. If your skin color is caused by some disorder then the use of yoga for fair skin can help, provided your natural healthy skin complexion is fair.
The color of the skin is determined by melanin, which is a pigment that characterizes the skin color. Typically, the amount of melanin in the skin is proportional to how dark the skin appears. People with dark skin have more melanin than those with lighter skin. The color of the skin is an important factor in the physical appearance of an individual. Without discussing any moral issues or passing any judgments, one can say that the color of the skin is definitely a determining factor in how an individual appears.
The color of the skin cannot be changed permanently unless there is some disease that affects it or some drastic medical procedure that changes the melanin content in the body. The tone of the skin, however, can be changed by an individual by improving one’s physical fitness and general health. Skin that is not properly taken care of tends to be dull and appear lifeless. This can make an individual appear darker than he or she actually is. This is where yoga for light skin comes in. Yoga is a set of positions designed to stretch and exercise the body. The human body is capable of many different physical actions. Due to a sedentary lifestyle, the body is often unable to do these actions without some pain. Yoga helps to allow the body the flexibility it is designed to have. Yoga also improves the blood circulation of an individual. This is the crucial factor when one wishes to use yoga for fair skin. When the body is circulating blood efficiently, it is able to nourish all its parts well. Well nourished skin will be clear and will also have a good tone.
A person practicing yoga should be clear that this is the only positive effect that yoga can have on the skin. Some people may believe that they can practice yoga for olive skin but this is simply not true. Yoga can only make the skin appear healthy which will improve the general appearance of an individual.

As yet there is no proof that Yoga practices can change skin color. But you can be the first to try. It definitely won’t have adverse effects, nor be a waste of time – the miscellaneous benefits of Yoga are immense. Please try a program of the following:


Asanas – All in standing, seated, supine, prone, inverted and balancing positions

Pranayama – Kapalabhati, Anuloma-Viloma, Bhastrika, Brahmari

Yogic Kriyas – Vaman Dhauti, Shanka Prakshalana


Also, as far as possible, do adhere to a Yoga diet..
