3 BEAUTY BENEFITS OF EXERCISE

I've been moving my body a lot more these days. Warmer weather = less clothing. Some days are a lot easier than others to get motivated.

Moving your body makes you a better person overall. You're more focused, your memory is better and you're a lot more productive.

It's also amazing for your skin and hair, which should be motivation enough.

Getting your sweat regularly has the following beauty benefits: 

LOOK YOUNGER

When you're stressed, your body produces cortisol (the stress hormone). Excess cortisol breaks down collagen in your skin, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.

Getting your sweat on at the gym not only reduces your level of stress, it helps your body produce more collagen improving the thickness of your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles will be less noticeable.

UNCLOG YOUR PORES

Getting your heart rate up increases your circulation and blood flow. It delivers a greater amount of oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, expelling trapped dirt and oil from your pores. It unclogs then and flushes the bad stuff out of your system. 

GET LUSCIOUS LOCKS 

Increase blood flow from working out also stimulates your hair follicles! It helps your hair grow stronger and healthier, resulting in shiny, luscious locks.

 

So, all in all, exercise improves the complexion of your skin, gives you shiny, luscious hair and raises your levels of endorphins (the happy hormone).
