Exercise And Its Beauty Benefits – What if I tell you, exercise not only helps you to maintain a healthy body but it also helps to maintain your facial beauty? Shocking right, but it is true.

These products will never replace the natural glow your skin gives which can only be seen in a healthy and nourished skin.
Exposure to dust and pollution is very common these days. It lies in our hands on how much time we invest to take care of ourselves. If you want to look good, buckle up and go sweat it out!
Benefits of Exercise
Natural Glow to Skin:
Exercise leads to proper blood circulation to all parts of the body and also to the superficial skin and also increases oxygenation which imparts natural glow. Also, perspiration leads to the elimination of toxic substances leading to a more clear skin.
When you exercise, it stimulates the production of collagen that gives a structural framework for the skin. Also, exercising involves the activation of facial muscles in turn reducing the sagging and aging of skin.
Acne is one common problem that most people face. It is caused due to over production of sebum that leads to clogging of pores. Increase in certain hormones like testosterone or cortisol leads to increase in acne. Exercising helps to maintain a proper balance of such hormones by reducing its levels in blood. Moreover, sweating also helps in clearing out clogged pores.
Improper sleep routine is one major reason for dark circles and oily skin. Frequent exercise will make you tired and hence bring back your sleep cycle to a normal pattern thus improving the skin’s quality. Also, sleep helps in rejuvenating your skin which is another added factor. What are you waiting for, go exercise and get that ‘beauty sleep.’
Exercising reduces the level of the stress hormone, cortisol in the blood. Cortisol is a hormone released by the adrenal gland which regulates your body’s reaction to stress. Exercises reduce the stress level and in turn prevents inflammation and puffiness of skin.

Experts say that including facial yoga with high intensity and moderate intensity workouts like cycling can be beneficial for the body and skin. Even though working out works great for a gleaming skin, it is important to have a post workout cleansing routine to ensure that the sweat does not clog your pores. First of all, it is advised to not wear makeup while exercising. Makeup and sweat causes the skin to crack and also acne bursts. Wash your face thoroughly with a natural cleanser or face wash that removes dust and sweat from the skin. Then, on a damp face, apply moisturizer and let it do the job.
