We all know that exercise is vital for physical health, but did you know it’s also crucial for skin health? According to dermatologists, regular exercise can help to keep our skin looking its best by improving circulation, delivering more oxygen to our cells, and helping to flush out toxins.
What’s National Women’s Health & Fitness Day?
National Women’s Health & Fitness Day is an annual event celebrating women’s health and fitness. The day falls on September 28th.

There are many ways to get involved in National Women’s Health & Fitness Day, including participating in local events, participating in online discussion forums, and taking steps to improve your own health and fitness.
So, what specific things can you do to keep your skin healthy this National Women’s Health & Fitness Day?
Here are 5 suggestions:
Get sweaty: A good workout will get your blood flowing and your skin cells working. Your muscles will also be more toned and can hold onto moisture better. Remember to wash your face ASAP after sweating, or you could end up causing more problems.
Drink more water: Staying hydrated is essential for healthy skin because it helps the skin cells repair themselves. When you sweat during a workout, you’re really losing water and need to replenish that amount. So, drink plenty of water throughout the day and especially after working out!
Protect your skin: Whether it’s sunny outside or in a heated indoor pool, always apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30. This will help prevent damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Eat healthily: A healthy diet is good for your whole body and skin. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will help give your skin the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
Get enough sleep: Your skin shows when you don’t get enough sleep. You might get dark circles under your eyes, or your skin might look dull and tired. Shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep each night will help you wake up looking refreshed, and feeling rested.
