Signs Your Workout May Be Affecting Your Skin

Signs Your Workout May Be Affecting Your Skin

25/08/2021 Beauty Tips

While it is no news that working out regularly is great for your physical and mental health, it is also the key to healthier skin. It keeps the skin vital by improving blood flow, nourishing skin cells and removing toxins through perspiration. Ironically, exercising could also be the cause of your skin troubles.

Intense exercise can lead to sweating, which causes the growth of germs and bacteria. These bacteria can cause serious skin irritation. In some cases, sweating can also cause rashes, chafing, and clogging of pores. If you have skin conditions such as eczema or acne, you may need to take extra care to keep your skin safe while exercising.

Here are some common signs that your workout may be affecting your skin.

01. Skin infection

Gym equipment are filled with germs and sweat. When you use these machines, there is a high chance of picking up some serious skin or fungal infections. Increased pain, swelling and persistent redness could be signs that your skin needs extra precautions while exercising.

02. Acne

Sweating and acne are often directly linked to each other. Wearing tight clothes or exercising outdoors can cause profuse sweating, resulting in excess oil formation on the skin, clogged pores, and growth of acne-causing bacteria. If you have frequent breakouts, you most likely have sweat sitting on your skin.

3. Hyperpigmentation

Exercising outdoors, especially under the harsh sunlight, can cause hyperpigmentation and skin rashes. If you are already suffering from skin conditions, excessive exposure can worsen them. The main signs of hyperpigmentation are darkened areas on the skin and inflammation.

4. Flakes or dry skin

Exercising can also make your skin flaky and dry. If you do not wipe the sweat off your skin and body properly, it can cause yeast build-up, leaving rough red patches on your skin that may feel itchy or prickly.

LPG Face Treatment with FCBS Dubai:

Often, women only consider serums and creams for their skincare. However, if applied to skin that is already irritated, these products can aggravate skin irritation. Having skin troubles should not stop you from getting your regular exercise — the health benefits far outweigh the skin problems. FCBS Dubai helps women to mitigate their skin issues without giving up on their workouts.

LPG face treatment is a service offered by FCBS Dubai that gives your skin a gentle mechanical massage. It boosts the natural synthesis of vital rejuvenating substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and erases visible signs of pigmentation and dark spots. LPG treatment uses micro-pulses on the face and neck to reactivate the synthesis process of fibroblasts.

This stimulation exfoliates the skin, oxygenizes the tissues and accelerates microcirculation to even out complexion. It leaves you with radiant-looking skin and refined texture. The treatment also helps to target excess fat around the neck and face, such as double chin.
