Regular exercise is one of the keys to healthy skin. Stuck indoors? Here are some exercises you can do from home and a post work out skin routine


This helps in dilating your blood vessels, promoting circulation to your skin. This supplies the skin with oxygen and other essential nutrients that produce new healthy skin cells and help repair damaged skin. Building up a sweat whilst you are jogging on a spot is similar to getting a mini facial. As we begin to sweat and our core body temperature rises, our pores start to open. As sweat is expelled from the body, it flushes out trapped dirt and oil with it. After a hour long jog, take a look in the mirror and you will see a happy and glowing skin.


This also improves blood circulation throughout the body and removes toxins through sweat that promotes beautiful and glowing skin. It also helps in burning calories and is very good with weight loss programs It requires just a skipping rope and skipping at least 15 minutes is a healthy way to starting your day.


Using body weight to challenge your self can help to plump the skin and provide significant anti-ageing results. As we age, our skin starts to thin which increases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Resistance training helps to stimulate the production of collagen within the body, which makes the skin, appear thicker and suppler. This form of training also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.


Mat Pilates is a strengthening and lengthening form of exercise that focuses on your core (trunk) muscles while also training your arms and legs. If you’re thinking about taking up Mat Pilates, you’re in for an exercise that tones, strengthens, burns fat and boosts mental health. Through a series of floor exercises using resistance bands and rings, the workout helps build, sculpt and tone these muscles, giving your body a long, lean look. Pilates can aid in flexibility and improving posture, as stretching your body is a vital part of class. This also helps burn fat during and after class, as your muscles continue to shed calories long after class ends.
         5.  SWIMMING

Do you have a swimming pool at home? Chlorine is known for having a drying effect on the skin due to its high chemical levels. However, if you are dealing with some skin conditions, swimming regularly can help as the antibacterial properties in Chlorine can help to attack blemish-causing bacteria. The drying effect that is often negatively presented can actually benefit those with acne as it helps to soak up oil and sebum, two of the greatest culprits for causing breakouts and skin irritations.


Wash your face immediately after your workout. It’s one a few skin-care rules that you should never break. You don’t want a cocktail of dirt, oil, and bodily fluids clinging to your skin, affecting its pH, and clogging your pores. You can use a cleansing facial wipes..

How to wash your face after a workout:

The main thing is to get the dirt, grime, and sweat off your skin.

Use a gentle cleanser: Stay away from cleansers that contains ingredients that can overly dry skin. Try an anti bacterial cleanser, a cooling gel based face wash or a gentle milk cleanser.

Try tepid water: End with a few splashes of cool (not cold) water. The lower temp can cool your skin, of course, but it can help close your pores, which dilate to help release sweat.

Pat, don’t wipe, your skin dry with a towel: Toweling off sometimes can irritate skin, particularly if your face gets really red when you work out.

Don’t dry your skin completely: Allow your skin air-dry. Somehow this helps curb an otherwise tight and overly dry feeling.

Apply your sunscreen: Applying a good sunscreen helps protect your skin from harmful radicals.

Save serious treatment products for bedtime: Sometimes, even a normal skin can be more sensitive right after a workout, so you may want to wait until redness dissipates or bedtime to use your super active acne or anti-aging treatment products.
