We all know that exercise is good for health, fitness, and weight management, but, did you know that regular, moderate exercise can be good for your complexion?
Exercise and Your Complexion
By Donovan Baldwin
Okay, we all know it, and the message is everywhere: exercise can do a body good. It can help you to stay trim, tone muscles, and help to boost energy as well. What you probably don't know, however, is the fact that exercise can actually help you finally get that clear, youthful complexion that you've always wanted.
It's a simple truth that regular moderate exercise will nourish the skin all over the body with fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients. As well, the
increased blood flow and circulation that come with regular workouts will help to remove toxins from the body and improve the condition of
all your vital organs, including the epidermis...the outer level of the skin.
A lot of people worry about exericsing, believing that sweat will
trigger acne flare ups. The fact
is, sweating is usually great for any type of congested skin, as it helps
promote the flushing of impurities from the epidermal layer and will
clean out the pores. Vigorous exercise can actually
correct hormonal imbalances that trigger blemishes, therefore
reducing the likelihood of outbreaks.
Any physical routine that you like to do, such as yoga, running, biking, spinning,
pilates, boxing, practicing one of the martial arts and such, will help to lessen the stress that you
encounter on a daily basis and help to prevent acne as a result of stress.
Keep in mind that exercise may not be a miracle cure for everything, as
you may still experience breakouts from time to time although your acne outbreak will certainly be less severe and last for a much shorter time frame.
Exercise is also great for some other skin conditions that may or may
not have to do with the presence of acne. Your skin losing its elasticity or becoming
thin and less resilient is something that we all encounter.
This is going to be a common problem for may of us as we get older.
As we all get older, we start to lose collagen,
which will make us look older and tired. As many of us don't
know, physical activity, i.e. regular exercise, can actually help to
promote the growth of collagen in skin cells, which will help plump up your
facial skin and help make you look younger and more vibrant.
If you are worried about wrinkles, you should become aware of the relaxation that comes automatically after you exercise. This has the effect of
making your muscles, facial muscles included, soften up. What
this means, is that your lines will appear less pronounced, helping to
contribute to the youthful look that you are trying to achieve.
With exercise you can create a smaller waist, better muscle tone,
softer skin, fewer blemishes, and an overall younger, fresher
look. If you've wanted to improve your complexion, you
shouldn't hesitate to exercise. Exercise will help you feel
more alive as well as improve your body. All you need to do
is take a little bit of time out of your daily schedule to do some exercise - it's as simple as that.
