Beautiful Skin: 5 Ways Exercising


Whether you love exercising or not, there’s no denying that regular workouts are great for our bodies. Not only does exercising help keep you fit and healthy, but did you know that it’s also good for your skin, too?

Below are the top five ways that exercising can improve your skin…

1. Exercising Makes You Look Younger


Who doesn’t want to look younger, right? Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly can ward off the signs of aging and even undo some of the signs that have already appeared. So, if you’re worried about aging, make sure you’re working out on a regular basis to keep your body looking and feeling younger.

2. Your Workout Can Prevent Wrinkles

This goes hand-in-hand with what I wrote above. If you want to look younger, you want to keep those wrinkles at bay. While you may be reaching for anti-aging serums to prevent or reverse wrinkles, you will also want to up your exercise routine, too to and optimize their affects. Exercising for long periods of time has been linked to increasing collagen and elasticity, which means less wrinkles and firmer skin for you. Make a little extra time for your workouts and you can start saying hello to smoother skin!

3. Sweating Clears Your Pores

Clear Pores

Have you ever been worried about the sweat from a good workout causing acne? That’s not necessarily true. Studies have claimed that sweating can help to clear your pores by removing the dirt and oil that lurks within them. However, one key thing to remember is to never exercise with your makeup on because it can lead to clogged pores. Also be sure to shower right after every workout to keep any dirt and bacteria from becoming acne.

4. It Fights Acne

Exercise can prevent acne? Okay, I’ll admit I was a little surprise to hear this one, too. But there is another benefit to that sweat session that a good workout gives you: it can help fight acne. Sweat actually contains a “natural antibiotic” that can help clear your skin. However, like I said above, you must wash your entire body in order to see these benefits. A good cleanser (such as Yon-Ka’s Gel Nettoyant) will help prevent any clogged pores and leave you feeling refreshed after a satisfying workout!

5. Exercising Contributes to Beautiful Skin

Glowing Skin

You don’t need makeup to fake a healthy glow! Your workout can give you the same results and leave you with youthful, radiant skin. How does it happen? Exercising improves your circulation, which results in that healthy, natural glow so many of us are seeking with tanning and makeup. This glow comes from oxygen and blood cells delivered to the skin during your fitness routine.
