Exercise and beauty

Exercise makes us feel good and protects our health. But can it help us with wrinkles and acne? Sure it can, as exercise and beauty are deeply connected.

There are many reasons to exercise. We keep our body in shape, and take care of our good health. Whatever your motivation may be, the positive results are always obvious.

But there is one benefit we often overlook: healthy skin. Let’s look at some ways in which exercise helps us to care for our skin and makes us feel more beautiful than ever…

Instant shine

When we raise our heart rate with aerobic exercise, we offer our skin a good dose of oxygenated blood. This is what makes us shine after exercise.

Wrinkle reduction

One of the benefits of exercise is that it helps maintain the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, at normal levels. Elevated cortisol leads to higher sebum production, and therefore more acne breakouts.

In addition, too much cortisol “breaks” the skin’s collagen and causes wrinkles. Exercise helps to produce more collagen, to have smooth and supple skin.

Acne relief

As we said before, exercise regulates cortisol levels in the body. In addition, it nourishes the skin, bringing more blood circulation and oxygen. This helps to flush out more toxins from the body. Sweat also clears the pores of dead cells.

Exercise can repair hormonal problems that cause acne in adults. If you have a problem with acne, wipe your sweat with non-scented wipes. And, of course, never exercise with makeup on.

Healthier hair

Better blood circulation makes our hair strong and healthy. The blood, as it is full of nutrients, activates the hair follicles and helps the hair grow.

In addition, with reduced cortisol levels (hence stress) our hair will be less thin and weak.

Experts suggest that the best exercise is one that combines different forms of training. For example, 30 minutes of brisk walking three times a week, as well as some strength training exercises, are a great starting point.
