The Beauty Benefits Of A Good Workout



Sometimes there are a million things we'd rather be doing than putting ourselves through a sweaty workout at the end of the day. But I have to admit, I always feel better when I'm consistently working out 3 or 4 times a week. Not only is it fabulous for the mind and body, but it definitely does wonders for the complexion. Check out the beauty benefits of hitting the gym on the regular.

When you work out, the body is able to detox, allowing the sweat glands to do their job and cleanse the skin. A good cardio workout helps the skin get rid of any nasty toxins, and I always keep a packet of Yes To Coconut Cleansing Wipes in my gym bag to cleanse the skin pre-and-post workout.

Exercise not only increases blood flow, but also delivers lots of oxygen into your skin cells. Increased oxygen enables the body to naturally create anti-aging properties and nutrients that keep your complexion glowing and radiant. And this helps your skin to become more receptive to anti-aging serums and stay hydrated, blemish-free.

Stress causes a myriad of skin issues from blemishes to hyper-pigmentation. And exercise is the best stress reducer, which in turn decreases breakouts and fine lines.

A good workout helps your complexion to naturally glow, and makes your eyes appear brighter and more alive. Your skin becomes more supple and hydrated, Your cheek bones appear higher. Your neck is taut and wrinkle-free. And your lips have that rosy plump appearance. I really love complementing that look with a tinted lip balm such as Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Lip Balm.

Consistent workouts help regulate your cortisol levels. FYI... If your cortisol levels become too high, collagen production will break down too easily, causing the skin to lose its elasticity and become wrinkly and saggy. By keeping your cortisol levels in check, you are also keeping those fine lines and wrinkles away.
