Are you exercising to improve your look? Did you know that exercise can improve your skin, too?
Of course, exercise improves your health. Your muscle tone. Your stamina. Your cardio fitness. Exercise really improves pretty much every part of your body - and that includes your skin. Even though we may not think about that when we hit the gym.
Your skin is your largest organ. And all that increased blood flow from exercise helps to get oxygen and nutrients moving to and through your skin.
Proteins help to build and repair cells. They also provide enzymes, hormones and antibodies that help keep it healthy.
Exercise keeps fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K flowing to your skin’s cells.
And when your blood is coursing through your body, it’s helping to remove waste products like free radicals from your skin. It’s pulling out toxins and cellular debris too. It’s like cleansing your skin from the inside out.
Exercise reduces stress. And stress exacerbates a bunch of nasty skin conditions. Like eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea. Stress also causes collagen breakdown, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles.
So what can we do to help out our skin while we exercise?
Well first, if you’re exercising outside - you know it - wear sunscreen! No sense in allowing for sun damage while we’re trying to improve!
Next, try a sweat-activating product like IGNITE INTENSE™ COCONUT SWEAT ACTIVATING GEL from Herbal Dynamics Beauty. It encourages additional heat and sweating during cardio, so you can get rid of even more toxins as you exercise.
It also helps to fight water retention and cellulite for a smoother appearance to your skin. It keeps your skin hydrated and soft. And it’s clean coconut scent keeps you smelling fresh through even your toughest workouts. So go for a run and come back smelling great!
There are no irritating or tingling ingredients, so it’s great for all skin types.
As soon as you’re done, apply a moisturizer to help keep as much moisture in your skin as you can. Massage it in generously and use a circular motion until it’s fully absorbed.
We like FLAWLESSLY FIRM™ TONING BODY BUTTER because it fights water retention and cellulite. It gives you a hydration boost and supports your skin barrier. It firms and promotes healthy skin. You’ll look great!
You can get the Sweat Activating Gel and Toning Body Butter together in the Flawlessly Fit Kit.

Amazing Set for Gym Lovers
"The Coconut Sweat Activating Gel makes me SWEAT. I apply it to my abdomen, thighs, and arms before a workout, add my waist trainer, and it’s game over. I use it alone to increase circulation. It’s fabulous! This product contains tons of vitamins, coconut oil, and Shea butter which my skin loves.
The Flawlessly Firm Toning Body Butter tones and tightens. I slather this on after my post workout shower. It smells like a tropical dream. Light hints of kola nut and mango butter with warm vanilla makes me feel like I’m pampering myself as opposed to using a firming cream. This product also contains coffee oil and green tea extract. again, my body loves this stuff!"

So get the most out of your workout by helping out your skin too!
