Here are some important benefits of exercise to the skin:

Nourishes skin cells:

Exercise by increasing blood flow, helps nourish skin cells and keep them working optimally. In an interview with WebMD, Dermatologist Ellen Marmur revealed that blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the human body, including the skin.

She explains that in addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps to carry away waste products including free radicals, from working cells. This essentially means that a bout of exercise helps flush cellular debris out of the system thereby helping to cleanse your skin from the inside.

Eliminates stress-induced skin issues:

Exercise is vital in easing stress. And various skin-related issues arise when a person is stressed maximally.

When you exercise regularly, you reduce stress to the barest minimum and the effect of this on the skin is that some troubling skin conditions induced by stress will show some improvement too.

Skin conditions that can improve when stress is reduced include eczema and acne.
