When it comes to keeping the skin healthy, the team and Dr. at Murad skincare know a thing or two. So, it’s only natural that they understand all the mechanics when it comes to keeping your complexion glowing when you exercise.
As you probably know, exercising is one of the best things you can do for your overall health and body, and the resulting nature is that it will also help your skin. However, there can be instances when increased sweating and redness can leave the skin looking less than lustrous, which is why we sat down with the team at Murad to understand what we can do to keep our skin in tip-top shape.
How does exercise help the skin?
Exercise and energising workouts promote healthy circulation around the body, which in turn promotes the removal of toxins from the system. As the increased blood flow becomes stronger when you workout, more oxygen is carried to your cells, and more wasteful materials are removed.
The result is a healthy body and glowing skin, as your cells are filled with goodness and banish the bad.
Can exercise break me out?
On occasion, the increased sweating can cause pores to become clogged if not properly cleansed away when you finish your workout. As sweating actually removes harmful toxins from your body, when it comes out on the surface of the skin, it is carrying these toxins, which need to be removed. You don’t want waste sat on your complexion so cleanse it away straight after.
The Murad Clarifying collection has been made for blemish-prone and acneic skin, but can be used post-workout to really refresh your skin and keep it completely clean. The Clarifying Wipes are a great option to use as they are incredibly handy after the gym and don’t require any water to cleanse. You can then follow with your regular cleanse once you get back home.
