Do you know what we love most about THR?
Well, everything! But the greatest part is feeling and LOOKING our best after a good sweat. I know you think you may not ‘look’ your best after a heart-pumping workout but it is true! Your beauty is in direct correlation with your fitness.
Health researchers now have a ‘healthy’ amount of evidence to support the fact that improved exercise is connected directly to your skin, hair, sleep, nails and overall beauty. Check out the perks that prove fitness makes a more radiant, gorgeous you from our girls at Aura Avenue.
Working up a good sweat is equivalent to getting a mini facial. Audrey Kunin, MD dermatologist and author of The DERMAdoctor Skinstruction Manual says “When the pores dilate, sweat expels trapped dirt and oil. Just be sure to wash your face afterward so the gunk doesn’t get sucked back into the pores.” Spend less money on gimmick products and more on your health and fitness and you’ll have you looking and feeling amazing. We just need to trust the process.
Exercising regulates hormones that are significant to your skin and prevent the damage of free radicals. Balancing hormones through consistent doses of exercise has helped women of all ages with estrogen, testosterone and thyroid hormone levels and skin cell renewal through blood circulation.
Less Stress = Less Wrinkles
It’s been suggested by sport psychologists and experts that as little as 15 minutes of exercise in a day can bestow a calm that can last for hours. For the biggest response HIIT exercises, running, cycling, swimming or a mixture of aerobic and weight training are recommended.
Having a fitness routine dramatically helps our sleep patterns. Exercise sharpens the body’s sensitivity to the stress hormone cortisol, which is really essential to enhancing sleep. It is essential for the release for cortisol (the thing that keeps me wound up at night when I don’t get a good workout in), helping to sleep sound and look more refreshed come morning. When asleep, the body can use this time to repair tissue, immunity and help us look and feel great.
It takes two to tango but what if your fitness regiment not only made you look sexy, but also feel sexy by balancing your sex hormone levels? Endorphins, sex hormones like testosterone and human growth hormone also get a boost with adults who exercise frequently. What is important here is you will love yourself more for you, not your partner or IG followers.
The point is, a pill, injection or salve can’t replicate the benefits of a good workout. Exercise doesn’t just effect our beauty but boosts virtually every system in our body. They all work together to ultimately make us look and feel our best when we treat ourselves with love. Don’t wait for tomorrow to start improving your health and ultimately your life.
