The beauty-benefits of exercising

Dermatologist Dr. Mikki Singh explains, "Breaking a sweat can have a positive impact on your skin. Exercising increases your heart rate improves blood circulation to the skin and delivers more nutrients and oxygen to your skin. These factors lead to an increase in collagen and new cell formation that gives you glowing skin or which we popularly call the post work out the glow. The building of collagen helps to avoid ageing which gives a plump and younger look to the skin."

Mistakes you should avoid

One of the common mistakes that need to be avoided is wearing makeup while workout. Makeup can block the pores and trigger acne.

To avoid post-workout acne, you should not touch your face when exercising. Due to the sweat and touching equipment at the gym, your hands may be loaded with germs. Touching your face can transfer these germs from your hands to face.
