- Posted on: Jul 30 2017
Everyone knows that to maintain a healthy lifestyle overall and a healthy weight, they need to do a combination of getting consistent exercise and eating right. Whether you prefer to hit the gym hard every morning or stay cooped up in your apartment and do hundreds of jumping jacks while watching cat videos on YouTube, it doesn’t matter how you get your heart rate up— just as long as you’re doing something active. But, did you know that working out isn’t just good for your endorphins, but it’s good for your skin as well? This article will discuss a few ways in which getting your heart rate up is good for your complexion. Read on to learn more.
It Gets Rid of Toxins
Sweating is your body’s natural way of excreting toxins. As such, it also helps your skin clean out your pores and get rid of toxins and harmful bacteria that may be causing unnecessary breakouts. To add to this cleansing process, we encourage our patients to wash their face directly after every workout— that way you can get rid of all the bacteria.
Increases Blood Flow
One of the biggest benefits of exercising is increasing your body’s blood flow to vital organs like your heart and lungs. Additionally, this increased blood flow is also good for your skin and complexion because it targets your individual skin cells and helps with the restoration process. As the blood targets each skin cell, it carries along with it the proper vitamins and minerals it needs to help with anti-aging and rejuvenation.
If you are looking for a slimmer waistline and clearer skin, then look no further than that treadmill that’s been collecting dust in your basement. As a perfect way to get rid of toxins and increase blood flow to your skin, exercise can help you get that perfect complexion that you’ve always wanted.
