Staying Active While Staying Home… Your Skin Will Thank You
Movement is good for the mind and body… AND FACE. Staying indoors all day can cause us [and our blood circulation] to become stagnant. Something we definitely don’t want during stressful times. And while we’ve been very impressed by the number of you we see on social media committed to at-home workouts, we just wanted to share a quick tip for those who want to go the extra mile.
We already know that exercise helps with heart, lung and mental health—and that sexy physique, but did you know that exercise is also key to HEALTHY SKIN? Exercise will help your skin by increasing blood flow. Blood caries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including your skin! This helps to nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Consistent blood flow will also help to get rid of waste products like free radicals from working cells. Hello, natural detox and glowing skin!
In addition to pumping blood to that beautiful face of yours, exercise will help with the ‘Shelter in Place’ stress. Stress does a major number on your skin. You can read all about this in our blog post, What Anxiety Does To Your Skin.. And What You Can Do About It Right Now. Keeping up with your workouts will help keep your skin issues at bay by balancing your cortisol levels.
BONUS: TREAT YOURSELF A POST-WORKOUT FACE MASSAGE
Face massage will increase blood flow and circulation and help to tone and sculpt. And remember, a massage on its own will only go so far so be sure to use a delicious, hydrating facial oil like our Ultimate Face Oil.
