Before you run out and spend tons of money on the latest anti-aging serum – make sure you’re giving your skin something that money can’t buy….exercise! Ok, money can buy you a gym membership but it’s money wasted if you’re not going on a regular basis. Exercise doesn’t have to be a drag. Try something you love like dancing, running, weight training, or jumping rope.
Here are four ways exercise benefits your skin.
1. Tones your muscles
Building muscle will support your skin so it will be stronger and firmer. Try squats or lifting weight to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Toned muscles means healthy skin.
2. Sweat, sweat, sweat!
That’s right, sweating releases toxins from our bodies via our skin. Our skin is the bodies largest organ so it’s the most effective way to release toxins that we get from pollution, alcohol, fast food, and free radicals – just to name a few.
3. Increases circulation
When you exercise, you increase the blood flow which nourishes your skin cells and keep them healthy. Doing cardio get’s the blood pumping and increases circulation so you can transport oxygen and nutrients to your well-deserving skin.
4. Gives your complexion a natural glow.
We’re all looking for “the glow” because it’s a natural form of beauty. You can’t get “the glow” from makeup but exercise will have you glowing like the sun. When you sweat you release toxins, and increase blood flow. Women have this natural glow when they’re pregnant and it quickly disappears because of lack of sleep and sheer exhaustion. The best way to get it back is to get your body moving!
