The first thing that comes to mind when you think about sweating may not be your skincare routine. In fact, often people consider sweating a bad thing for your skin because it can lead to negative impacts like clogged pores.
We will stop short of making this a sweat appreciation post, but there are definitely some proven skin health benefits to sweating that could make you feel better about sweating through your clothes. Whether you're sweating from hot weather or working out you may find that some of the following positive benefits are welcome additions to your skincare routine.
1.) An effective exfoliant. Believe it or not sweating can act as your body's way of removing dead skin and reducing the build up of dirt and grime from your skin. Of course, using this exfoliant is not the only exfoliant you should be using, but it can be a part of the solution to keeping your skin looking youthful and fresh. Depending on how often you are experiencing sweating you may also want to use our #1 selling product, InstantPeel that provides an at home way to completely exfoliate your skin with a simple steam in the shower.
2.) Naturally hydrating. It may seem hard to believe, but the process of your body sweating actually brings moisture to the surface of your skin adding a level of hydration that you don't normally get when your body is idle. This is a way to keep your skin looking and feeling great. In addition to this way of naturally hydrating your skin, you may also want to use one of our moisturizers that would be perfect for your skin type.
3.) Improved circulation. The added heat that your body experiences while sweating leads to improved circulation by dilating your blood vessels and allowing your blood to flow more freely through your body. This is what leads to a post-workout glow that you might experience and in the long-run will leave your body looking fresh and youthful.
When you think of a skincare routine the first thing to come to mind may not be getting to the gym and working out so that you can sweat your way to nicer skin, but the body has a natural ability to improve it's situation, especially when it is being exercised to the point of sweating. This is a great opportunity to get healthy and to work on your skincare all in one effort.
