Five benefits of physical exercise for your skin

Have you ever really thought about why you exercise? There are plenty of possible answers: it's fun, it’s good for you, it helps you to stay slim and trim, it wakes you up, it's an opportunity to make friends... But what you don’t often say is: because it’s good for my skin.

But it is. Here are the five main ways that exercise is beneficial to the skin:

  1. Exercise stimulates blood flow, so the skin gets more oxygen and nutrients.
  2. Sweating raises body temperature, helping to expel dirt from the skin, clearing blackheads and acne. The result. Clean, glowing skin.
  3. It improves the appearance and tone of the skin. because our bodies get more oxygen when we exercise.
  4. What’s more, exercise helps to banish stress and allows you to sleep better at night.
  5. It’s a well-known fact that sleeping is an excellent beauty treatment, repairing the damage suffered during the day and preventing dark circles and under-eye puffiness.

As a matter of fact, one direct result of exercise is healthier, less tired-looking skin. Despite its many benefits, it’s still important to protect yourself when you exercise outdoors. Some sports are harder on the skin than others, and can cause dryness, cracked lips and premature ageing (as a result of cold conditions, wind and the sun). Always exercise with clean skin and wear specific photoprotectors. Try DSP-Cream SPF 50+. You’ll adore the texture. Most importantly, use it year round.

And how about after exercise? After exercising at the gym, in the water or outdoors, it is very important to rinse away the sweat with a warm shower,an ampoule of Proteoglycans DSP-BRIGHT and DSP-Brightening Serum, for example. Find your ideal beauty routine and treat yourself to a moment of optimal well-being. Remember, we all have our own personal routines!

And, of course, NEVER exercise wearing make-up. You’ll have time to make yourself look pretty afterwards!
