Can Working Out Double as a Face Lift?

What is happening now is that working out is giving those who want to stay fit, also, seems to be getting a face lift too.

Most people who look half their age, or at least 10 years younger, have had a fitness or sport regimen since they were young.  Ask anyone who’s between the ages of 30-60 who seem to look a lot younger than their real age, “if they were in sports or worked out” as a youth.  At least more than half will answer back, “yes.”

In fact, if they were active in working out, in sports, in any activity that required working out in general will probably say they feel younger too.

So, if you want a face lift, then workout 3-5 days a week; sound good? According to fitness trainer, Jackie Warner, in her new book, Why You’re Sick and Tired and How to Look and Feel Amazing (Harlequin), she tells readers that “recent research shows that working your muscles increases the production of collagen cells and [which] stimulates the production of ‘”growth hormone,”’ hence, repairing the connections between that of your skin and your muscles. This gives the tightness, firmness, and the tone which appears to look extremely younger-looking.

What’s more is your also getting your cardio, and your entire body fit at the same time.  The increasing of your heart rate and blood flow will stimulate all the benefits needed to receiving an exercise which will give you “more nutrients and vitamins.” Plus, the oxygen that’s produced towards your overall body’s skin cells will also be included all over your face as well.

This is why people have that glowing look after working out.

It’s All Due To Working Out

When people are sweating while running, for instance, naturally their heart rate increases. This is where the benefits kick in. Dermatologist suggests that by “increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital.” So, comparably, the running, biking, skating, playing basketball, soccer,…etc. will all give you a great “sweat sesh” while you are keeping your skin toned and even.  The added benefits are all there when it comes to staying active at least 3-5 days a week with some sort of workout regime.

Dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, and author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman’s Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine claims that people focus on the cardio benefits but while this is happening during those sweaty workouts, he says, the benefits come with cardio plus the added physical activity which strengthens and promotes healthy circulation while helping keep skin health, glowing, and vibrant.

So, next time you go workout. Think of the double takes you’ll be getting because of all this double workout for your face, body, and don’t forget you’ll be working out your mind as well. Promoting a healthy lifestyle all connects with your mind, body, and spirit giving your not only a free facelift, but a better toned and firmed skin feeling.
