Forbes Living-Beauty Series Part III-Exercise

Exercise is not only good for your heart and health but it also has a lot to do with the look of your skin. When you exercise you are increasing your blood flow, which helps nourish your skin cells. When you are toning your body you are toning your skin everywhere including your neck and face. Some people think that losing weight will make their face look nice and tone but it’s actually losing weight combined with exercise. Forbes Living did a bit of research on the effects of exercise on the skin and found out some interesting facts.

Forbes Living on How Exercise Improves the Health and Look of Skin

Stress-one way to relieve stress is through exercise and when you relieve stress it shows on your skin. There are certain skin conditions that are       by stress such as eczema, acne, rosacea and psoriasis. Studies have found that when you manage the stress in your life these conditions tend to go into remission.

Blood Flow-exercise boosts blood flow and oxygen to the skin, which carries nutrients to the skin cells and improves skins health.

Beautiful Glow-when you exercise the skin produces more natural oils that make the skin look supple with a natural glow. If you suffer from acne you will want to take a shower right after you exercise to wash off the dirt and extra oil that can make acne worse. For more tips on glowing skin go to
