Even though it’s cold outside, don’t neglect your fitness regime or your skin will suffer. Just because we no longer feel the pressure of getting into our swim suits, doesn’t mean exercise can be forgotten.
Exercise increases blood flow and carries oxygen and vital nutrients to all cells in your body, including your skin cells. At the same time, exercise increases lymphatic system flow by as much as 25%, removing waste products and substances that cannot be re-absorbed into the blood.
Your skin is the largest organ of elimination in your body and toxic build-up and sluggish lymph system will prevent your body working optimally. (Doing a series of Sun Salutations increases the lymphatic system).
