When you get your sweat on, it purges your body of toxins that can clog pores and plague your skin with pimples and blemishes. When you exercise, this increases the blood flow to the skin, increases neuronal stimulation, and allows the sweat glands to increase their functions and rid the toxins. It is important to wash after you sweat all those toxins out, as you don’t want them sitting on your skin. Always shower after a workout to prevent bacterial or fungal infections that may occur from dirt clogging up your pores.
The more toned you are beneath your skin, the healthier your skin will look and feel. The stronger and firmer your muscles are; the more support your skin will have and the more firm and elastic it will appear. Toning your muscles may also help to minimize the appearance of cellulite, the dimply fat that often strikes thighs and buttocks. You can’t exercise cellulite away, but you can help it look better.
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.
Exercise has long been known as a great way to relieve stress. Those mind-body benefits may extend to your complexion. Stress may also trigger flare-ups of psoriasis. It’s known to boost hormone production and suppress the body’s ability to heal, but regular workouts can keep stress and possibly hard-to-manage skin conditions under control. When you’re feeling tense, let exercise keep any frown lines at bay, too.
When you exercise, your skin begins to produce more natural oils that help skin look supple and healthy. While that can naturally moisturize skin, remember to cleanse your face gently and when you shower to prevent any breakouts. Make exercise and GrooveCycle your secret skin care ingredient for a young, healthier, and smoother complexion.
