If like me you overindulged at Christmas, too much chocolate, cake and prosecco, then it will start affecting your skin fitness. Blemishes, dull complexion becomes evident, coupled with the cold drying winter weather, it’s time to take action.
This can often mean doing the thing you most want to avoid – exercising. I have written many times about the benefits of keeping fit, particularly as we get older and it is essential in restoring skin to its healthy glow.
Here is what we recommend at Omorovicza:
Skin fitness is essential to achieve healthy, glowing skin. But did you know that physical exercise can improve your complexion, and is one of the best remedy for wrinkles, dull skin, acne and dry skin…? We reveal why in the next post in our Skin Fitness series.
Regular exercise boosts your blood circulation and improves the oxygenation of skin. Enhanced blood flow helps the skin to regenerate and toxins are efficiently removed from the body. Think of it as cleansing from the inside.
Taking exercise can help improve the texture and elasticity of your skin. It boosts the production of collagen, which helps your skin repair itself subsequently delaying the process of ageing and subsequent dreaded wrinkles.
It has been proven that exercise can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol. This hormone can exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema and acne.
When you work out, your skin receives a dose of oxygenated blood which gives you an instant glow as your skin is hydrated and can “breathe” properly. You feel more relaxed when working out, so your complexion instantly appears less tense. When do you start your skin fitness regime?
