How Does Exercise Affect Your Skin?

December 23, 2016

If you think exercise is only good for stimulating your heart and toning your tummy, think again. Regular exercise not only improves your mind’s cognitive powers and makes you feel like a million bucks, it also does wonders for your skin.

You may have found the best skin care products and the most effective paraben free skin care regimen, but your skin will never look glowing and healthy without makeup and good lighting until you get off the couch!

Cleansing Your Skin from the Inside

We know that exercise increases blood flow, which in turn nourishes the skin cells and carries away the bad stuff – toxins, waste products and free radicals. A vigorous workout also flushes out cellular debris to leave your skin feeling squeaky clean from the inside.

You don’t have to be a triathlon winner to see an improvement in your complexion due to regular exercise. Walking, cycling, and everyday housekeeping can release enough oxygen and nutrients into skin cells to bolster your skin’s elasticity and natural glow. Even the best skin care products can’t nourish your skin like sweating it out at the gym or around the house.

The Best Skin Care Products for Exercising

Before you start your exercise routine, make sure your skin is clean; do not exercise while wearing makeup because you want your pores to remain unclogged when you perspire. Afterward, you should shower and reward yourself with some luxurious pampering. The best face oil for moisturizing after a workout is an all-natural serum that contains a high concentration of argan oil and hyaluronic acid. However, any moisturizer in your paraben free skin care arsenal will prevent post-workout irritation.

Don’t let a dermatological condition like body acne, rosacea or psoriasis stop you from exercising, because physical exertion will only help your skin. Just be sure to wear loose-fitting clothes that soak up moisture.

August 12, 2020

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly? 

First - Debunking Common Myths about HA 

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
