The Benefits of Exercise on the Skin
Exercise has so many benefits on the body and our lives and one of the immediately noticeable ones is better skin and a clearer more glowing complexion.
- Improved circulation
- Reduced stress related spots and pimples
- Reduction of testosterone related hormones
The skin can reflect the general health and well being of the person.
The beauty industry spends a small fortune on the development of products aimed at giving men and women a youthful glowing complexion.
There is no doubt that many products do have a place in the well being of the skin but the easiest and the best way to keep your looks is to take up an exercise regime.
This is now medically proven
Regular workouts are now part of the medical professions’ formula for keeping the skin supple and youthful looking.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and should not be forgotten when exercising.
When you start your workout you should warm up to get the circulation moving around the body and that includes the skin as well as the muscles. Warm ups prevent possible injury from strains.
You will probably have noticed that when you exercise hard your face turns more and more rosy.
This is caused by the heart rate rising and the circulation increasing. This draws the blood to the surface of the body taking nutrients to the skin cells and helping to rid the body of toxins.
Health experts agree that stress levels are reduced significantly and stress can be beaten if you exercise. The adrenal glands start working to produce less testosterone hormones such as DHEA and DHT. And that in turn will have a less adverse impact on the skin.
People who are prone to stress related spots and pimples will find that when they adopt an exercise program, the overall benefits will be a clearer complexion as the pores become unclogged due to the increase in sweat produced.
This will also help to control acne flare-ups, which affect many young people today.
Don’t just take up exercise for the sake of your body.
Take a look in the mirror after a long day walking in the mountains or just a good hike or maybe a long bike ride.
The fresh air and stimulating exercise will make your complexion glow with good health. You will look and feel much better than you did before you started out that morning.
