Countess LuAnn de Lesseps credits her glowing complexion to turning her beauty routine upside down. “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,” says the Real Housewives of New York City star. Besides doing Ashtanga yoga, she also relies on a Mediterranean diet to stay trim. “It’s the most tasty: fish, olive oils, and simple white meat,” explains de Lesseps, adding, “not that I don’t enjoy my weekly steak!” Rejuvenate your circulation with Health.com’s yoga video! – Charlotte Triggs
