Did you know that besides slimming down and adding muscle tone, working out can also benefit your skin and hair? Exercise is one of the best ways to nourish and revitalise your body.
By getting your heart pumping and increasing circulation your skin receives oxygenated blood that boosts detoxification and cell renewal. A good workout helps regulate hormones and relieve stress that can cause acne and other skin problems.
Breaking a sweat allows more blood to reach the skin’s surface and deliver nutrients that repair damage from the sun and environmental pollutants. These nutrients also speed up the skin’s collagen production. As we age our body produces less collagen but the nutrients delivered to the skin during exercise help your skin look younger. Just make sure to wash your face afterward!
Regular exercise also improves blood flow to your scalp, keeping your hair strong and healthy.
Another benefit of exercise is better sleep. Working out helps you sleep better and it's not called beauty sleep for nothing. In deep sleep the body repair and rebuild body tissues!
That said, exercise alone is not enough, you need to pair your workout with healthy food choices.
