Working out helps to have beautiful skin too!
It is widely known that exercise is great for your heart, lungs, and mental well-being. Well, it turns out that another great reason to get moving is that regular exercise is one of the keys to healthy skin. Here you have five good reasons to exercise:
Sweating during your workout
Sweat helps your body to get rid of toxins that can clog pores and plague your skin with pimples and blemishes. Exercise increases blood flow to the skin and neuronal stimulation, allowing the sweat glands to increase their functions and eliminate the toxins. It is important to always shower after a workout, in order to prevent bacterial or fungal infections that can occur from dirt clogging up your pores, and to wash off the toxins eliminated by sweating.
Increased muscle tone
The more toned muscle you have beneath your skin, the healthier your skin will look and feel. Stronger and firmer muscles also help to provide more support to your skin, and it will appear more firm and elastic. Toning your muscles may also help to minimize the appearance of cellulite.
Exercise boosts oxygen and blood flow to the skin
Exercise gets the blood flowing and an increased blood flow carries more oxygen to the skin. The boost in blood flow and oxygen to the skin cells also carries nutrients that improve skin health, supporting all the effort you make with moisturizers and other skin care products on the surface.
Exercise helps to release stress
Exercise has long been known to be a great way to relieve stress. Some studies have shown that stress may worsen -if not actually trigger- acne. Stress may also trigger flare-ups of psoriasis and it is known to boost hormone production and diminish the body’s ability to heal. Regular exercise can keep stress and some hard-to-manage skin conditions under control.
A beautiful, natural glow
When you exercise your skin begins to produce more of its natural oils that help it look supple and healthy. While that can naturally moisturize skin, remember to cleanse your face gently as part of your skin care routine when you shower, to prevent any breakouts.
