Five Beauty Benefits of Exercise

Are you ready for five beauty benefits of exercise in our exclusive Blooms Health Products blog?

Daily exercise can improve your complexion as it increases blood flow, removes impurities through sweat and brings more oxygen to the skin, so find an exercise regime you enjoy and get started!

Exercise makes you sweat.

Sweat purges your body of toxins that can clog pores and plague your skin with pimples and blemishes. The body only has so many mechanisms to rid itself of toxins — the kidneys, the lungs, the liver, and the skin. Exercise increases blood flow to the skin and allows the sweat glands to increase their functions and rid the toxins. Once you sweat out those toxins, it’s important to wash them off — you don’t want to leave them sitting on your skin. Always shower after a workout to prevent bacterial or fungal infections that may occur from dirt clogging up your pores.

Exercise tones your muscles.

The more toned you are beneath your skin, the healthier your skin will look and feel. The stronger and firmer your muscles are, the more support your skin will have, and the more firm and elastic it will appear. Toning your muscles may also help to minimise the appearance of cellulite. You can’t exercise cellulite away, but you can help it look better.

Exercise boosts oxygen and blood flow to the skin.

Exercise gets the blood flowing, and that increased blood flow carries more oxygen to the skin. The boost in blood flow and oxygen to the skin cells also carries nutrients that improve skin health, supporting all the effort you make with moisturisers and other skin care products on the skin surface.

Exercise eases stress.

Exercise has long been known as a great way to relieve stress. Those mind-body benefits may extend to your complexion. Stress elevates cortisal and other hormone production and suppresses the body’s ability to heal, but regular workouts can keep stress — and possibly hard-to-manage skin conditions — under control. When you’re feeling tense, let exercise keep any frown lines at bay, too.

Exercise gives your complexion a beautiful, natural glow.

When you exercise, your skin begins to produce more of its natural oils that help skin look supple and healthy. While that can naturally moisturise skin, remember to cleanse your face gently as part of your skin care routine when you shower to prevent any breakouts.

Make exercise your secret skin care ingredient for a young, healthier, and smoother complexion.
