HAVE GLOWING SKIN
Everybody wants glowing skin, and as it turns out, you do not need some magical cream or the help of make-up, by simply having regular physical activity you can get that a natural glow. According to dermatologist, Dr. Noëlle S. Sherber, the skin is supplied by enough amount of oxygenated blood whenever the heart gets to pumping during exercise. What actually happens is that the improved flow of blood brought upon by exercise moves vitamins and minerals, plus oxygen towards the blood vessels found under the skin. These nourishing substances are what the skin needs to be able to recover from any damages and repair itself, and the result of which is healthy and glowing skin.
SAY GOODBYE TO WRINKLES
Cortisol is a hormone that is related to stress, and too much presence of cortisol in the body can cause a high production of a substance called, sebum, that eventually leads to the appearance of acne. Another bad result of too much cortisol in the body is the breaking down of collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and skin sagging. To be able to keep a healthy amount of cortisol, regular exercise and working out is necessary. So, sweat it out to help keep acne, wrinkles, and skin sagging at bay!
