We all know exercise is good for our bodies because it helps us maintain a healthy weight and look our best. But did you know that working out is actually a great way to practice skincare?
Here are three reasons why exercise, in addition to the right beauty products, helps keep our skin healthy and radiant:
1. It removes toxins. When we sweat, we purge our bodies of unhealthy radicals that clog our pores and cause acne and blemishes. By participating in regular physical activity, you'll purge your skin on a consistent basis and help keep skin problems at bay.
2. It relieves stress. Exercise causes the release of serotonin, a pleasure-inducing hormone produced naturally by the body. When you exercise, not only does the hard work purge your mind, but the serotonin relaxes you and reduces your level of stress.
3. It tones up muscles. Regular exercise, including both cardio and strength training activities, helps to keep muscles firm and tight so that you always look fabulous, even in the hot summer months when short-shorts are all the rage. In fact, regular exercise is one of the best natural cellulite treatments.
Look great and feel even better by participating in regular physical activity. Your skin will thank you, and you certainly welcome all the appreciative glances that come your way.
