7 Benefits on How Exercise Impacts Your Skin!

by Jennifer Richard on September 06, 2019

There are hundreds of ways to get beautiful, healthy and glowing skin, from makeup to skincare to beauty treatments but did you know that exercising is one of the easiest ways to get that dream skin?

Clogged pores and acne-prone skin? Go and work up a sweat!

Sweat actually helps to clear your skin! Your sweat glands increase their activity that enables your skin to be able to flush out toxins such as oils and dirt, getting rid of clogged pores. But for that to work, always and I repeat, always! Never work out with your makeup on and also always shower after working out so that bacteria and germs from your workouts are washed away or you will just be stripping away the good benefits of a good sweat! Embrace that clean and glowing skin! (Hey! Check out our cleanser over here!)

Good hormones for you and for your skin!

Exercising releases those feel-good hormones called endorphins, along with many others. Not only does the hormones help reduces anxiety and ease depression, but it also helps reduce a stress-inducing hormone called cortisol that negatively impacts skin health such as acne outbreaks, and the increase of collagen breakdown.


Stay cool, feel cool and look cool.

The effects of thermal heat damage on the skin are often forgotten. Thermal heat can age skin very quickly by damaging the structural integrity of your skin, breaking down collagen, leaving you with skin that is brittle. So, always cool down your skin during your workouts or even on a daily basis! Stay hydrated or use SOLYPH’s Time out Refresh Forest Bathing Essence for that spritz to cool down and refresh!

Age with grace!

As mentioned, a stress-inducing hormone called cortisol actually breaks down collagen that leaves your skin weak and brittle and with a good workout, the body increases the production of collagen to keep your skin soft, supple and firm, reducing and slowing down the chances of getting wrinkles.

Damn! Look at that glow!

You may notice the glow that someone gets after a workout and that’s because the blood vessels that are close to the skin surface dilate and sends through a heavy dose of oxygenated blood, leading to that healthy and vibrant appearance. Your skin will also feel moisturized as it produces natural oils, leaving your skin with that dewy look!

Tone it up!

Toning of muscles doesn’t only mean toning it up on your body, your skin needs it too! Your skin is better supported with strong and firm muscles, making your skin appear healthier, firmer and also helps get rid of cellulite. 

Your skin is the largest organ of your body!

Like every organ in the body, you need vitamins, nutrients and other good stuff to support it and for your skin, it needs that dose of vitamin D from time to time!

Sunlight triggers the production of vitamin D in your body and helps immune cells to travel out to your skin to heal and protect damaged skin! But be warned, always know when too much sun is too much to handle.

PS! When working out outdoors, always make sure to use a sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful rays! Physical sunscreens such as SOLYPH’s Face the Wild, Sun Shield Cream are chemical-free, environmentally friendly and helps deflect those harmful rays off your skin, keeping your skin damage-free.

So what are you waiting for? Move for your skin!
