We know that exercise is good for helping us stay in physical shape and well-being and that it also helps us with our mental well-being, but did you know that it can also help you improve the quality of your skin? Read on to learn the ways that a good workout can also help improve the quality of your skin!
EXERCISE GIVES YOU SMOOTHER, MORE RADIANT SKIN
Getting a good workout in can work the same way for your body as an anti-aging product and a mini-facial does! Improving your body’s circulation improves the look of our skin by boosting detoxification and cell renewal throughout our bodies.
The sweat that you work up while working out works in the same way that a mini-facial does as it dilates the pores and expels trapped dirt and oil that is beneath. If you wash your face afterwards, you can help prevent that dirt and oil from getting sucked back up into your pores which will give your skin a smoother complexion overall.
When you exercise, your body’s overall circulation is improved, which allows your blood to more easily reach the skin’s surface and deliver nutrients that repair any damage from the sun and environmental pollutants and encourage the production of the skin’s collagen, which helps keep our skin supple, firm, and elastic and can prevent and tackle wrinkles and fine lines, helping our skin to look younger all over! Recent research studies even indicate that exercising can help reverse skin aging that has already occurred once people start exercising later in life!
EXERCISE REDUCES STRESS AND ANXIETY, WHICH ALSO IMPROVES THE LOOK OF OUR SKIN
Exercise produces endorphins, which are the hormones that make us feel happy, which helps reduce our overall stress and anxiety levels. Stress hormones are often to blame for acne. The production of more endorphins and less stress helps decrease the amount of cortisol and other acne-provoking hormones that naturally occur from stress. So, a good workout can help you minimize the amount of acne you experience, if you are also taking proper steps to keep your face and body clean after the workout.
Now that you know how exercise can help you truly improve your overall well-being not only for your physical and mental health, but also for your skin’s health, get out there and start working up a sweat!
