It is a well known fact
that exercising regularly has many health benefits. However, not many realize
its true potential.
Working out does not
merely help you in maintaining a good figure, but also has a direct effect on
improving your complexion.
Not only that, if you
have suffering from issues like wrinkles, acne, dull or dry skin, exercise is
one of the best remedies for your skin!
While regular exercise
is a way of life for some, for the others it is a distant “thing to do” –
something that they plan to do some day but can never get around to it.
Ask those who exercise
regularly and they will give you plenty of reasons they choose to exercise.
For most, it is because
they are focussed on maintaining a healthy lifestyle; while for others, it may
just be a companionship thing with their partner, or a family outing or
something they do on a vacation.
Whatever be the
motivation, the benefits of exercise as listed are very obvious. However, there
is a hidden pay-off that most people do not realize - a healthy, glowing skin.

beauty rewards of a regular workout.

body gets rejuvenated with oxygen rich blood. This leads to a balanced
secretion of cortisol; the hormone that controls stress.
Elevated level of
stress can lead to many undesirable skin conditions such as acne breakouts. It
also has an effect on collagen, which is responsible for tightness of the skin.
A breakdown in collagen enhances loss of skin firmness, leading to sagging skin
and an increase in wrinkles.

also results in the correction of hormonal imbalances which consequently has
many health benefits.

suffering from chronic adult acne, perhaps putting on your running bagpack and heading out in the open is better cure than any
medicine that you may be taking.
