Exercise & Your Skin

We all know the benefit of facials – clear, glowing skin that appears full and healthy. Did you know that one of the main reasons your skin appears this way after facials is because of increased circulation? All of the massaging, active products and steam increase the blood circulation in your face and body. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin!

Exercise gives the same circulation results! While I would honestly prefer to get a facial 5 times a week rather than hit the gym, I do like the effects of cardio on the rest of my body as well. Exercise increases your heart rate and improves circulation.

Worried about breaking out after hitting the gym? Exercise is great for reducing stress – a major cause of breakouts. The only warning: deep clean excess oils off your skin and body post-workout by either hopping into the shower or keeping face|body wipes in your gym bag.

My favorite cleansing wipes:

– Sanitas Therapeutic Cleansing Pads (50 pads for $18)

– Yes to Tomatoes Facial Towelettes (25 towelettes for $7.99) – For Oily Skin Types

– Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes (30 towelettes for $5.99) – For All Skin Types (Sensitive)
