Making a resolution to exercise more in 2022? Regular exercise increases your heart rate and helps blood circulation, boosting your overall health and wellness. Working out can help your skin, too, as long as you take steps to care for it before your workout.
In addition to a healthy glow thanks to increased blood flow, skin benefits from exercise in many other ways. Since exercise brings oxygen and nutrients to various cells in the skin, collagen production is increased and new skin cells are generated, which helps defy the effects of aging. Working up a sweat is good for your body and skin since it also helps to clear out your pores.
Keep in mind, one of the best things you can do for your skin pre-workout is to cleanse away any dirt, oil, and makeup. Your pores open as your body temperature rises, so to avoid clogging your pores, start with a clean slate, even if that means stowing some makeup remover wipes in your gym bag.
If you’re working out at home, give your face a quick cleanse before hopping on the Peloton or hitting the yoga mat. Doing so will remove any residual makeup and encourage the release of sweat from your skin, preventing breakouts and acne.
CLR Foam Cleanser from Dp Dermaceuticals is a gentle, non-stripping cleanser, perfect for pre and post workout facial clarifying. By exfoliating the skin’s surface gently, balancing out oil production, and increasing cellular turnover, you’ve got a powerful ally in this cleanser. It works wonders on skin that breaks out often using a blend of amino acids, honey, salts and both fruit and herbal extracts to neutralize p-acne bacteria and calm inflamed skin. Although it is a potent cleanser, it is gentle enough for any skin type to use everyday.
When hitting the gym, or perhaps sharing equipment with your family or roommates at home, make sure to wipe down equipment before and after you use it. Using a medical skin disinfectants spray can protect you from contracting skin infections including a type of HPV that causes plantar warts, fungal parasites that cause ringworm, staph infections that can enter through an open wound or by sharing razors or towels as well as impetigo, a contagious skin infection caused by staph and streptococcus.
