There are different ways to get an instant glow, one of them is breaking a sweat.
Working out not only helps your figure & self-confidence but it also improves your complexion.
When you exercise, the tiny capillaries in your skin open, allowing more blood flow to reach the skin’s surface and deliver nutrients that repair damage from the sun and environmental pollutants. These nutrients also rev up the skin’s collagen production, think wrinkle repellent.
It also reduces bodywide inflammation, helps regulate skin-significant hormones and prevents free-radical damage. As we age, fibroblasts (the collagen-producing cells in the skin) get lazier and fewer in number. But the nutrients delivered to the skin during exercise help fibroblasts work more efficiently, so your skin looks younger, supple and elastic.
Working out also helps maintain healthy levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol. Elevated cortisol levels are linked to increased sebum production, which means more acne breakouts. Too much cortisol can also cause the collagen in the skin to break down, which can increase wrinkles and sagging.
As for the best type of exercise its all good, they will all help improve circulation and reduce stress. Try 30 minutes three times a week and get that instant GLOW!
Psst and a more restful sleep…. (my number 1 skincare tip).
