How Working Out Can Improve Your Skin
It’s no surprise to hear that working out improves your health, heart, physique, and even mental state. But did you know there’s another benefit to working out? Your skin will improve too!
When we are physically active, one of the first things to occur within our bodies is a faster heart rate, and therefore increased circulation. When our circulation is up, more oxygen is being carried through our body, and more oxygen throughout the body results in a more vibrant, youthful, and healthy complexion.
On top of that, exercising is one of the best ways to stimulate collagen production by boosting the creation of the human growth hormone (HGH). Collagen is essential for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so exercising regularly is one of the most effective ways to prevent the look of aging.
Want to really reap the skin benefits from your work out? Make sure you break a sweat before hopping in the shower. When you start sweating, your pores open up to release dirt and oil hiding just below the skin’s surface. For those with acne-prone skin, this can be especially beneficial. Just make sure you thoroughly wash your face within a half hour to prevent the sweat on your skin from collecting bacteria. The Sky Essentials Foaming Antioxidant Cleanser is one of our favorites for dissolving any impurities sitting on your skin’s surface and restoring hydration after your workout!
So, if you were waiting for another reason to hit the gym or go for a run today, here it is!
