Working out not only helps your figure, but also improves your complexion. When you get your heart pumping from aerobic exercise, like our Plank Tone It classes, you’re supplying your skin with a nice dose of oxygenated blood, giving you that great post-workout glow.
Exercising also helps maintain healthy levels of the stress-related hormone cortisol, and elevated cortisol levels are linked to increased sebum production, which means more acne breakouts. Too much cortisol can also cause the collagen in the skin to break down, increasing wrinkles and sagging. Physical activity actually supports the production of collagen, keeping your skin firm, supple, and elastic.
Regular exercise boosts circulation, nourishes your skin and bringing more blood flow and oxygen to it. Plus, sweating cleans out the pores of congested skin and corrects the hormonal imbalance that can cause adult acne.
