Sweat it Out! – Detoxify with Exercise


Summer is approaching and we all want that clear natural skin glow to show off at the beach, pool or while we’re on vacation. Did you know SWEATING (and of course regular EXERCISE) is actually a great way to detoxify your pores & achieve clear skin?

We get it, sweating can be embarrassing if you’re at school, work, or spending a night out on the town. Many people avoid going to the gym or exercising in public due to fear of sweat marks or possibly becoming stinky, BUT exercise is not only mandatory and beneficial to your health, but to your SKIN as well! As human beings, our bodies produce almost 1 liter of sweat per day… this can strengthen our immune system and give us healthy-looking skin!

Don’t be afraid to SWEAT IT OUT!

Here are some health benefits of exercising that actually don’t “stink”:


Prolonged sweating is expected to occur at the gym during an intense workout or even brisk walking in the sun. Exercising increases the level of the “feel-good” endorphin hormones that are naturally released during physical activity. It has also been found that group workouts actually increase endorphin levels and cause less pain for those who work out together than those who train alone. Sweating it out during a group exercises like Zumba or hot yoga can help put a smile on your face.


One of the most efficient ways to detox your body — without the juicing — is to sweat. Sweating can flush the body of substances of alcohol, cholesterol, and salt. The body releases toxins by using sweat as the conduit. Sweat purges the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes. Many toxic elements appear to be excreted through sweat. Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for the elimination of many toxic elements from the human body.


Your pores open up when you sweat and that releases the buildup inside them. Sweat purges the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes.


One of the most common mental benefits of exercise is stress relief. Working up a sweat can help manage physical and mental stress. Exercise also increases concentrations of norepinephrine, a chemical that can moderate the brain’s response to stress.


Feeling uninspired in the office or just in everyday life? The solution could be just a short walk or jog away. Research shows that workers who take time for exercise on a regular basis are more productive and have more energy than their more sedentary peers  . While busy schedules can make it tough to squeeze in a gym session in the middle of the day, some experts believe that midday is the ideal time for a workout due to the body’s circadian rhythms.


We hope these tips give you the little boost you need to continue on the right track (or help motivate those who are just getting started)! There are SO many benefits to exercise, even if it’s just a few minutes a day!

See ya’ soon!
