We all hit the gym for our own reasons; some do it to get ripped for that vacation they just booked, while others do it for staying healthy. Regardless of why you go to the gym, we can all agree that hitting the gym's payoffs are real good. However, it turns out there's yet another stealthier payoff…..having a healthy skin! Here're some of the benefits that your skin will gain from working out.
When you work out you get your heart pumping from aerobic exercise, this supplies your skin with a nice dose of oxygenated blood.
Working out serves as a good deterrent of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It supports the production of collagen, a protein that is the support structure of our skin. When you work out, you strengthen and tone the muscles beneath the skin, making the skin look healthier.
The improved blood flow helps keep your hair stronger and healthier as working out helps to promote blood circulation to the scalp and hair follicles. This eases the supply of nutrients in the blood stream to the hair follicles.
Regular working out boosts circulation as it nourishes the skin, bringing more blood flow and oxygen to it. Also, all that sweating from working out cleans out the pores of congested skin.
Yet, if you're acne prone, to get the best out of working out, make sure to keep gentle, fragrance-free cleansing wipes in your gym bag to cleanse your face and other areas that tend to break out immediately after exercising.
To sum up, next time you find yourself slacking off while exercising on the gym, remind yourself that you're not only working out for toned muscles, but also for that healthier skin we all want!
