Exercise and Your Complexion

As we all know and hear all the time, 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 do not know, is the fact that exercise can help you achieve the complexion that you have always wanted.

It is true that regular 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 working out will help to draw toxins out of the body and improve the condition of all your vital organs, including the epidermis.

A lot of people think that sweat can trigger acne flare ups.  The fact is sweating is 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.  As well, vigorous exercise can correct the hormonal imbalances that can trigger blemishes, therefore reducing the likelihood of outbreaks.

Any physical routine that you like to do, such as yoga, running, biking, spinning, Pilates, boxing, and such, will help to lessen the stress that you encounter daily and help to prevent stress related acne.

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 will certainly be less severe and last for a much shorter time frame.

Exercise is also great for 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 a common problem for many of us as we get older.

As we all get older, we start to lose collagen, which will make us look tired.  As many of us do not know, physical activity can help to promote the growth of collagen in your skin cells, which will plump up your facial skin and make you look younger and more vibrant.

If you are worried about wrinkles, you should consider relaxation that comes 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 achieve a smaller waist, better muscle tone, softer skin, fewer blemishes, and an overall younger, fresher look.  If you have wanted to add or change to your complexion, you should not 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 schedule to exercise – it is as simple as that.
