Going to the gym, doing Crossfit, pilates, or some other form of exercise does magic to our bodies. Exercise basically gives us stamina, reboots us with energy, goodwill, and of course help us improve our physical and mental state of mind as we are at the same time dropping pounds. 

Having drop-dead gorgeous figure and bombastic abs are the reasons to hit the gym in the first place, but working out, believe it or not, is extremely beneficial for the skin.

Regular exercise is one of the keys to healthy and glowing skin

The heart is pumping fast and cardiovascular system is running fiercely all of which leads to having nurtured and healthy skin. Our largest organ should be taken care of meticulously, and one way is by working out.

The Skin is Smoother and More Radiant

It is a proven fact that as you exercise your heart rate goes up, thus blood vessels begin to expand and pump more blood into the body. 

This circuit instantly improves the circulation of oxygen and actually makes the skin more luminous and softer. Next, as you are sweating, the pores tend to expand, which for people who have acne issues can be rather uncomfortable and troublesome, but for the rest of the people, this means new cells being created. 

You get rid off dead skin by excessive sweating and immediately after you have washed, rinsed and cleansed the skin, you get that bright, smooth and glowing new skin.

Indulge in Healthy Circulation

This means that working out and sweating regularly keeps the skin healthy and vital by producing natural oils. 

Increased blood flow is yet another healthy element that contributes to perfect skin that is risen by effective workout. This tends to be beneficial for people who have troubles with rosacea or psoriasis because they will get enough oxygen and healthy nutrients needed for the acne to heal. 

Running, for that matter, is a magnificent exercise to get enough blood pumping for normal circulation and glowing skin. Only make sure that you have the right equipment like comfortable sneakers, light clothes, and a quality compression leg sleeve that will improve your performance and stop bad odors.

A vital thing to know is that the liver is responsible for detoxifying the skin and kicking out the negative toxins out of our bodies. 

Consequently, due to increased blood flow during exercise, free radicals and other waste products are carried away out of the system. In this way, you are revitalizing your body from the inside which can result in having quality and smoother skin. 

Therefore, in order to flush out all the toxins out of your body, make sure you drink enough of fluids. 

Also, as you are working out in the sweaty gym, put a clean towel on every piece of equipment or at least wipe it off clean. Then, use another clean towel for your face.

Even if we take meticulous care of our skin, there are people who are either prone to irritations, or they simply cannot avoid getting into contact some bad bacterias in the gym. 

  • Avoid rubbing your face during or after the workout. 
  • Don’t use the gym’s towel but always bring yours. No matter how clean it might be, nasty bacterias can easily harvest in places where are numerous people. 

What is more, people with sensitive skin must take even greater attention in order to avoid added irritations. Try not to overheat yourself during workout, jog, and workout outside as much as you can. Plus, if you have eczema, keep core body temperature low.

Dark circles under eyes are a result of poor sleep. By exercising you recharge with positive energy and thus elicit longer and more restful sleep. Having a good night’s sleep leads to having a more fresh and beautiful skin. 

The similar effect is with stress. Various studies have proven that exercise decreases stress, and less stress could quite literally mean fewer skin problems. 

Avoid Dehydration

Skin needs water. Make a conscious effort to drink plenty of water before, during and after the workout. 

Water nourishes skin cells, keeping them vital and vigorous. Combination of quality workout and drinking minimum of 1 liter of water per training helps you detoxify your body, and keeps your muscles toned beneath the skin which leads to having zestful and tight skin. 

Automatically, the healthier your skin looks the healthier you will feel. When you drink water during exercise, you push out more toxins that are excreted during sweating, all of which leads to having clean and nurtured skin.


Bear in mind that you should properly take care of your skin before and after the workout. Wash it with cold, clear water, use medicinal soap, exfoliate, use a Skin-friendly Micellar Water and lightweight moisturizer. Doing exercise only boosts the positive effects of more radiant and healthy-looking skin.
