The Incredible Beauty Secrets From Working Out

Well, this is the definitely not a favorite subject for many readers here, specially for those that love spending their weekend on their couch watching TV like no tomorrow.  BUT WAIT!! did you know that working out not only keep you body incredible healthy but it also enhances your collagen production?, making fresh collagen to make your skin look younger and beautiful.

In case if you didn’t know, collagen is a very important  protein that holds your body together, the lack of collagen in your skin as you age, in this case, collagen type 1 is one of the main reason that your skin develops wrinkle.  So basically, sweating a bit, not only helps you to lose weight but it also helps your skin to look radiant and younger.

This is good news for those who has issues with acne, since sweating force out all the dirt, oil, and  free radicals from the dilated pores during the workout, turning your workout routine into a mini facial (point+ for workout). While sweating helps to clear out some nasty dirt off of your skin, performing resistance training exercises and other workouts expand your blood arteries in which double your blood circulation greatly around your body, delivering more rich oxygenated blood and other nutrients to your skin which is equal to happy face :-).

Btw, did you know that exercising also helps to relieve stress? stress causes your body to produce more oil and you know what this means? Acne!, so double happy face 🙂 and point+ for workout.

Now, if you do your work out inside of your gym is fine since you avoid catching UV burns, but you if do it outdoors, there are few things you should consider:

  1. Wear sunblock: too much exposure to ultraviolet is one of the main cause of skin cancer so better suit up with your sunblock with good SPF protection at least 30 SPF to avoid clogging your pores.
  2. Wear hat and shades: sometimes, sunblock alone is not enough, since you wipe off a good amount of sunblock while you sweat. Which is why is good to wear a good hat and shade to add an extra layer of protection.
  3. Wear proper clothes: wearing proper clothes and not too tight clothes can help prevents some serious and painful skin problems like rashes or chafing.
  4. Shower: not only shower after workout is important to clean all the dirt from yours pores but it’s also important to shower before your workout to clean out your skin and avoid fungus or excess or dirt. Remember to use a face skin-lotion product to smooth your skin after shower such as SwissZell.

Just in case if you are wondering why your face get too flushed or red after your workout, don’t sweat on it, it’s perfectly normal and it only proofs just how hardcored your workout was.  This is a response of your body driving all the heated blood from your workout to your skin, causing your blood vessels near your skin to dilate in which causes the face to turn red.  It’s a very important process of your body, but if it bother you much, you can always lower down the intensity of your workout, but I guess this is not something that you would like to do.
