4 Healthy Skin Benefits of Working Out
Beautiful Skin through Exercise
Make exercise your secret skin care ingredient for a young, healthier, and smoother complexion.
Sweat. Sweat purges your body of toxins that can clog pores and plague your skin and lead to break outs. Once you sweat out those toxins, be sure to wash them off — you don’t want to leave them sitting on your skin. Always shower after a workout to prevent dirt clogging your pores.
Increased oxygen and blood flow. Regular exercise gets the blood flowing, and that 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 skin surface.
Reduce stress. Exercise has long been known as a great way to relieve stress, which can be a trigger or aggravate existing acne or psoriasis. Managing stress with exercise can also help minimize frown lines.
A beautiful, natural glow. Exercise prompts your skin to produce more of its natural oils that help skin 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.
