How Exercise Affects Skin and Hair

If you’ve been keeping up with Koils By Nature blog, you know how we feel about healthy diets and healthier living. One way to achieve smoother and softer skin and hair, is with, you guessed it, your diet and workout routine. 


Incorporating a healthy workout routine into your week is essential for living healthier and looking even better. Exercising regularly is a key ingredient for skin that glows and hair that shines. Let’s explore the effects exercise has over our kinky curls and coils and the smooth texture of our beautiful skin. 


The direct impact of exercise on Skin

Besides for toning the muscles of the body, exercising regularly can have an incredible impact on your skin. When you exercise and increase heart-rate, you improve blood circulation throughout the body. When the flood is able to flow easily, it will prevent the skin from drying out, and will transport oxygen and nutrients to the skin. When nutrients and oxygen are flowing easily and in abundance to the skin, new skin cells are created which helps the skin look clean and healthy. 


Working out can cause breakouts and flare ups to skin when the skin is not clean before and after the workout. For instance, wearing makeup during a workout clogs the pores and when the makeup is mixed with sweat, it can cause bacteria to grow and unnecessary breakouts. But, if we’re taking care of our skin, keeping it clean, and working out for healthier living, then we’ll not only have the post workout glow instantly after the workout, but healthier skin long term as well! 


The direct impact of Exercise on Hair

Not only does your skin benefit from increased heart rate, which leads to increased blood flow, but so does your hair and scalp! When the oxygen and nutrients make it all the way to the scalp, they stimulate the hair follicles which promotes hair growth. The hair will not only grow faster, but healthier and stronger too! Increased circulation to the scalp and hair will also nourish the hair, which prevents or lessens dryness, frizz and hair breakage. 


The direct impact of Exercise on our Mental Health

Many turn to exercise as a way to relieve stress. While for some of us it’s just stressful to even think about working out, once we actually get into the groove of working out, do we begin to understand what the hype is all about. And the best part about exercise is -  that it’s free. Well it can be. You don’t need to buy fancy equipment, or even trendy workout clothes (unless you want to and this is a part of what motivates you to get to it!) but you can actually work out from YouTube videos in your own home, whether it’s a pilates, yoga or tai-chi video - whichever you enjoy most! There is also the option to get outside and go for a run. Or even find a playground nearby and workout on those monkey bars! 


Research reveals that exercise can not only prevent mental health illnesses from developing, but also can improve the challenging symptoms of most mental health issues. Exercise can improve moods, energy levels (believe it or not! The more energy you use the more you have!) and improve sleep cycles. You will not only decrease stress hormones while you workout, but increase your ‘feel good’ hormones, also known as endorphins. 


Our final thoughts on Exercise

It’s not always easy to find the motivation to exercise. It takes a lot of strong will and will power to get into working out and integrating exercise into one’s daily routine. Even while we are well aware of the benefits, it can still be hard to get to it. They don’t say ‘mind over matter,’ for nothing. Many people find it easiest to exercise first thing in the morning, so nothing can get in their way of getting their exercise into their day. Though we know it’s a challenge, we just want to encourage you to try your best, and therefore feel your best. You may just need to remind yourself why you are doing this, remind yourself it's your own choice and all the benefits that will follow from a workout that could last as short as 30 minutes a day. 


Have you recently added exercise into your routine? What motivated you to get started and keep going? Or, have you been thinking about exercising, but just can’t seem to take the first step? Tell us what’s going on, we’d love to hear from you!
