The Benefits Of Exercise For Skin

The Benefits Of Exercise For Skin

The benefits of exercise for our systems is becoming more apparent, with masses of science to back it up. We all know that exercise helps with our physical and mental health. However, one of the lesser known benefits of exercise is that it helps to give us healthy glowing toned skin. This is because it tones us up, stimulates our systems, reduces stress hormones and makes us feel amazing.

At Nakin we are huge advocates of anything that helps to keep our skin looking great naturally, which is why we produce amazing natural skincare. So we love the benefits of exercise for skin. The other great thing about exercise is that it can be completely free, and we have so many choices to do something that we enjoy and fits in with our lifestyle. Read on to find out more.

Regular exercise significantly contributes to improved skin health, by enhancing blood circulation which, in turn, helps to nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Increased blood flow also aids in the removal of waste products from cellular activity, including free radicals, from working cells. This process not only rejuvenates the skin but can also help in reducing the signs of ageing, leading to a healthier, more youthful complexion. Engaging in physical activity can also help regulate the body's stress-related hormones, lowering the levels of cortisol, which in excess can break down collagen and elastin, the fibres that give skin its elasticity and strength.

We love the way The Insider sum up how exercise helps skin by getting our heart rate up and improving blood circulation. This allows the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Subsequently it promotes collagen production and new skin cells. Collagen is the holy grail of good skin, and it gives us that plump bouncy look. However, collagen decreases naturally as we get older, so helping to boost it through exercise is really beneficial to skin.

Exercising the face increases blood flow and tones up skin in the same way that body exercises do. You can also exercise your actual face to tone up and strengthen the muscles and structure. You could help to tone up the whole face and even saggy areas of skin. Yoga is great for all over facial exercise, or try more specific targeted movements for problem areas.

We know about how exercise helps us destress, which is great for our mental health. This destressing is also hugely beneficial for our skin. Thriva state that exercise helps to regulate hormones and reduce stress. Exercising keeps those ageing stress hormones like cortisol at bay. Getting active can even help with the root cause of stressed out skin, which is often related to hormones and stress. It need not be an intense work out to reap these benefits. Why not get a yoga or Pilates app if you have experience of these, take long walks or a lovely bike ride. Remember to always seek medical advice before embarking on a new exercise programme.

Web MD advise that when we exercise, our body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce our perception of pain, they also help our cells including those in our skin. We love exercise for the way it can make us feel amazing, and even increase our confidence. When we feel good, we also look good. Nakin’s range also assists with having beautiful skin, and our products include the below.
