Everyone knows that exercise is good for your body, helping you to stay trim, tone your muscles, and boost your energy as well. But what you probably don’t know, is the fact that exercise can actually help you achieve the complexion that you’ve always wanted.
Regular exercise will nourish the skin all over the body with fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Plus, 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 skin.
But what about sweat? A lot of people think that sweat can trigger acne flare-ups but the fact is, sweating is actually 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. In fact, vigorous exercise can actually 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, or boxing, will help to lessen the stress that you encounter on a daily basis and thereby also 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.
Exercise can also help fight the signs of aging on your skin.
