How regular exercise makes us look and feel our best

Regular physical activity plays a key role in keeping our body and mind healthy. The positive effects of exercise are countless – it can help us avoid chronic illnesses, boost self-confidence, build a body of our dreams and even improve our memory.

Researches also show that establishing a regular workout routine can help us slow down the aging process and look younger than we are.

Let’s look at some of the beneficial effects of exercise.

Younger-looking skin

Youthful appearance and healthy glow of the skin are the perks of regular cardio training. Exercising increases blood flow which brings vital nutrients, minerals and oxygen to the skin cells, while sweating helps flush toxins from the body. As a result, we get rejuvenated skin with even tone and plumper complexion. The beautifying effect is especially strong on the day after the training.

Working out also leads to more toned and strong muscles which contribute to firmer-looking skin and minimized appearance of cellulite. Besides, exercising assists in keeping healthy levels of the stress hormone cortisol which can be destructive for collagen and lead to the loss of elasticity of the skin.

Beauty sleep is one of the benefits of a good workout too – we get a restful high-quality sleep, during which our skin repairs and renews itself.

Younger-looking body

Good posture can help us look younger and more attractive. With age, we tend to lose our muscle mass, which can keep us from standing tall and straight as well as moving freely. Besides, our daily habits, such as slouching in front of the computer, can also contribute to developing a bad posture, leading to various health problems and leaving us with the less attractive overall look.

Regular exercise helps strengthen our core, achieve a more fit body, and build a great posture for a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

Healthy weight

As we age, our metabolism slows down, we tend to gain fat and lose muscle mass. Exercise can help us burn more calories and keep a healthy weight. Not only the workout session itself can contribute to a more toned look, but also the time after exercising involves burning calories while the body is repairing and rebuilding muscles.

Even though our weight can be affected by many factors including our lifestyle and genetics, the key to maintaining weight loss is getting regular physical activity.

It is important to remember that despite having anti-aging effects, not all of the physical activities can be equally beneficial for you. Always choose exercises with relevant intensity and frequency for your specific goals, and develop your personalized training plan with an experienced professional to achieve the best possible results.
