It is hardly new when you hear of exercise and its benefits to the heart, lungs and one’s mental outlook in life. But here’s another reason for you to keep moving: Regular exercise helps you get the healthy skin glow that you want.
Physical activities come with numerous cardiovascular benefits. However, it is also important that attention is given to the other benefits that come with exercise. Some people might not care whether their heart is in its most healthy state but would care enough if their skin glows despite the harsh effects of aging. Dermatologists say that anything that promotes the healthy circulation of blood in the body is good for the skin. It helps keep the skin moisturized, radiant and vibrant.

Acne, psoriasis, and rosacea are just a few of these conditions that prevent people from exercising. However, doctors suggest not to let any of these skin problems keep you being active. Why do you ask?
- Increase in blood circulation in the body is achieved through regular exercise. When there is an increase in the flow, the skin cells are nourished keeping the skin and the body looking and feeling great from inside and out.
- In addition to providing more oxygen, increased blood flow helps carry the waste products, including the free radicals in the body away from the healthy cells. Contrary to popular belief that exercising helps detoxify the skin, it is the job of the liver to detoxify the skin and keep it healthy.
- However with continued exercise, one could expect the effects of the detoxification to show on the skin. Since it hastens the cleansing from the insides, the radiant glow will show how exercise has indeed allowed the skin to grow healthier.
Exercise has also been found to help relieve stress, which is one of the leading causes of skin allergies and psoriasis outbreak. By decreasing stress, exercise helps reduce all the other medical conditions that could promote drying of the skin. Eczema and acne are two skin conditions that can be reduced by the positive effects of exercise on the body. When your body produces more happy hormones due to exercise, you will be able to feel better from the inside, and your skin glow will show it.
