How Exercise Helps Your Skin

We’re all aware of the benefits of exercise to our muscles, hearts, lungs and even mental state, but does it help our skin, our body’s largest organ?

The answer is yes. Exercise increases blood flow, which promotes good circulation ensuring that plenty of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the skin, keeping it healthy and vibrant. Increased blood flow also helps flush cellular debris from your system, cleansing your skin from the inside out.

There are skin conditions like acne and eczema that can be exacerbated due to physical activity. The salt in perspiration causes this. To prevent this from happening try either using a moisturizer prior to exercise to protect the skin from sweat, or exercising in a cooler environment.

Swimming is a good choice for those who suffer from rosacea because flare-ups are caused by increased body temperature. Exercise is also known to reduce stress, which helps to improve many skin conditions, and the overall benefits of exercising far outweigh the downfalls.
