We all associate exercise with a toned-body, strong muscles, healthier bones and so on.
But did you know that exercise has a significant impact on beauty as well? Surprised?
Yes! Exercise has a multitude of beauty benefits, which we list in our blog today.
Let’s take a look:
1) Glowing Skin
Glowing Skin from exercise? When you perform exercises, the activity increases the heart rate and promotes the flow of oxygenated blood to your skin. Our skin contains tiny capillaries in its deepest layers that store minerals, vitamins and oxygen transported by our blood. It is these capillaries that provide our skin cells with their required nourishment.
So when we exercise, we are contributing to youthful and glowing skin with a dash of blush to our cheeks.
2) Long and Lustrous Hair
Long and Lustrous Hair is also a product of exercise. Exercise as we know, promotes blood flow which also stimulates hair follicles and supports hair growth. Amy Dixon, Exercise Psychologist and Celebrity Trainer from Los Angeles says that exercise can be a big stress reliever.
Stress is also one of the main reasons, we lose our hair. “Lower stress means your hair is less likely to be brittle and, worse, fall out.” Dixon suggests a mix of workouts as frequently possible, this could include simple yoga postures or a brisk walk three times a week.
3) Healthy Sweating
Healthy Sweating can sound strange but the main purpose of sweat is to remove toxins from our body. When you workout, sweat in your body acts like a steam cleaner that cleans your pores inside-out. Hence, we should move beyond the belief that sweat is bad just because it clogs our pores.
4) Wrinkles and Ageing
Wrinkles and Ageing can also be done away with exercise. Exercise promotes the production of collagen, a protein that maintains our skin’s structure.
When you work out, you tone the muscles under the skin, resulting in its healthier look. And when the muscles become stronger, the skin tends to be firmer and has an elastic look.
5) Skin Repair
Skin Repair is another benefit that regular exercise provides. This has been proven by research, which suggests that exercise promotes skin self-reparation more rapidly.
But make sure to also take your own measures to promote skin repair. You can use an SPF 30 with UVA and UVB, when you head out in the sun.
