Exercise and Healthy Skin

Friday, October 14, 2011

With all the many health benefits that exist from exercise, I have been reading recently about another one I didnít know about. Did you know that exercise has been known to help acne, blackheads, rosacea, and other skin problems? Who knew? Apparently, exercise contributes to healthy skin because it increases blood flow, unclogs pores because it activates sweat glands, and more importantly, it reduces stress which is one of the biggest causes of skin problems. Exercise helps to increase circulation and aids in the delivery of nutrients to skin cells.

Exercise isnít just good for your heart, joints, lungs, and waist line. It can help your skin too. So, if you didnít already have enough good reasons to exercise, now you have another one. Here are some good articles on the topic.

    Well I guess that is why at my age of 70. People tell me my skin looks good. of course I am not shy. I say why thank you.

I agree with all that you wrote. Yes stress for sure ages one.
Smiling is a good medicine and it is contagious for others.

You look amazing and so happy .

    You always have such good information in your blogs, and this is another example of that. I generally knew some of the ways exercise is good for the skin, but didn't know some of these specifics. Thanks!
