Nov 1, 2014: Regular exercise can help you burn extra calories, keep your heart healthy and reduces the risk of obesity. But these are not the only reasons why you need to hit the gym. Sweating and exercise is not only good for your heart, but also your skin.
5 Ways Exercising Regularly Can Brighten Your Skin and Keep it Supple.
#1 Blood, Oxygen and Collagen
Hop on a treadmill and increase your heart rate every day to make your skin glow. Exercising will improve the blood circulation in your body. You don’t necessarily have to lift a lot of weights, just going out for a jog around your neighborhood (if there is not much pollution in the air) can help you achieve a radiant skin.
When you run or exercise, your lungs take in as much oxygen as possible and the heart begins pumping out blood throughout your body including your skin. This is the main reason you get that flushed and radiant look, right after your workout. The ample supply of oxygen rich blood and nutrients ensures collagen production, which keeps your skin supple and smooth.
#2 Shed Unwanted Adipose
Your skin takes the shape of what is in the adipose. Everyone knows that working out can help one shed unwanted fat from their body. Lose those extra fats in your stomach, glutes, hips, thighs, and even your face to get a sexy and healthy body.
#3 Pump Out Toxins
Break into a sweat. Sweating is a great way to keep your skin clean and flush out all the toxins from your body naturally. The skin along with the kidneys and liver are responsible for getting rid of toxins from your body.
#4 Bye-bye Cellulite
Tone your muscles and tighten your skin with weight training. Shedding the fat and toning your muscles will definitely make your skin better and get rid of cellulite. Stretching exercises can also help prevent cellulite (Orange skin syndrome) by improving the tone.
#5 Natural Oil Secretions
There are small microscopic glands in your skin called sebaceous glands that secrete an oily substance called “sebum.” Sebum helps keep the skin moist. Exercise encourages the production of natural oils in the skin. These oils will unclog the clogged pores and give your skin a radiant look.
