Walk your way to Younger Skin

Exercise flushes toxins and improves cell regeneration for a healthy, youthful glow.

If you already think of exercise as the fountain of youth, you’ve been paying attention. After all, it helps us to feel good, look good, and stay limber and independent. Climbing up a steep hillside to catch a glimpse of the sun setting, for instance, gives you an invigorating and powerful sense of self. Huffing and puffing up a flight of stairs? Not so much. But one benefit of exercise that you most likely rarely think about is how it affects your skin. Physical activity increases circulation throughout the body. Better blood flow to these regions means an influx of nutrients and a flushing of toxins. For the skin, this means quicker healing and cell regeneration, which promotes a more youthful glow. So get out for a daily walk, run or activity of your choice, and watch what happens — as long as you don’t mind whistles.

Get Your Beauty Rest…

Sleep your way to younger skin. Research shows a lack of quality sleep may increase the signs of aging.

No wonder it’s called beauty rest. The quality of your sleep can affect how quickly your skin ages. Researchers have found that women who sleep poorly show accelerated signs of premature aging, such as fine lines, age spots and reduced elasticity, compared to good sleepers. They also found that the skin of those with poor sleep habits doesn’t recover as well from environmental stresses, such as sunburns and moisture loss. That’s because skimping on shut-eye can weaken the skin’s ability to repair itself at night.
