The latest scientific advancements in anti-aging are nothing short of revolutionary. From lasers to injectables, there have never been more non-surgical treatments available for women to maintain a youthful look. Science is also proving the skincare benefits of taking care of your inside too. From exercise to massage, here’s our guide to an inner beauty that makes your skin glow too:
We all know that cardiovascular exercise increases blood flow, so it makes sense that your latest spin around the spincycle has benefit to skin cells too. The more oxygen and nutrients that are delivered to skin cells, the more nourished and vital they are. Plus, blood flow aids in the removal of waste material, including free radicals, which wreck havoc on the skin.
Yoga improves circulation and aids detoxification, which will leave the skin glowing and vibrant. Certain poses, such as Uttanasana, have even been touted for acne control.
A good hands-on massage encourages lymphatic drainage and increases blood flow to the skin. And a dose of relaxation is a great stress-buster, reducing the number of free-radicals disrupting your skin’s renewal.
