4 Ways Exercising Can Impact the Appearance of Your Skin

By exercising, you increase the blood flow in your body more rapidly and help to nourish skin cells. Proper blood circulation continuously transports oxygen and nutrients to your skin and other vital organs. • Exercise has been shown to ease stress. High stress levels can cause increased breakouts and lackluster skin. By decreasing stress, some skin ailments that can be exacerbated by stress may show signs of improvement. • Exercising consistently may increase muscle tone. The more muscle tone you have, the firmer your skin may appear. Firm muscles and tone may also make cellulite less noticeable. • Exercise can help you fall asleep faster and improve the overall quality of your sleep. Your cells rejuvenate and repair themselves while you are sleeping. Chronic sleep loss not only enhances the appearance of dark circles, inadequate sleep may also produce cortisol (stress hormone) in your body resulting in collagen breakdown, fine lines and wrinkles. Cautionary Note: If you have sensitive skin or skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, rosacea, overheating and sweating during a workout can leave you with added irritation or unwanted flare-ups. Make sure to take added measures to keep your skin protected while exercising. #healthyskin #dailyexercise #bloodcirculation #stressreliever #acne #psoriasis #rosacea #beautyrest #muscletone
