Runner's Face: Can Intense Exercise Cause Premature Aging

You probably already know that exercise is not only good for your body and soul but also for your skin and overall beauty. It helps promote healthy circulation and slows down aging. To maintain your youthful and radiant look, no amount of anti-aging creams and serums will help unless you start from within. And this can be achieved through a healthy lifestyle, which includes exercise.
Once the inside is taken care of, it's time to protect your hard-earned benefits from the outside with FRÉ Skincare, an innovative and comprehensive dermatological solution to common skin damage caused by sweat, strenuous exercise, sun and other environmental factors. FRÉ's Argania Active Complex contains natural potent antioxidants. Our core products are specially formulated to protect skin from sweat and exercise-induced damage like premature aging, dryness, bumps, blisters, pimples, spots and sores.

Exercise And Your Skin

Exercise improves your skin. Running, which is a simple cardiovascular exercise, not only burns fat but also makes your skin look good! Here are just a few of the benefits running has on skin

1.Radiant and beautiful complexion

2.Rids your body of toxins that clog pores

3.Boosts skin circulation for efficient nutrient delivery

4.Reduces stress which triggers certain skin conditions

5.Reduces breakouts

Despite the wonderful impact of exercise on the overall health of your skin, strenuous exercise can also cause damage to facial skin. Runner's face occurs when your cheeks sag or appear skeletal as a result of the intense movement, fat-burning and regular exposure to the sun experienced by runners.

Women and men who run marathons often suffer from runner's face in their late thirties. Runner's face isn't the only skin problem caused by strenuous exercise. Many workout enthusiasts experience sweat-induced acne, dryness, skin infections, sun damage, and chaffing because of exercise. Sweat creates a warm and moist environment conducive to bacteria growth. Wearing sunscreen or makeup, which clogs your pores causing bacteria to become trapped in your skin, can worsen the problem. In addition, equipment that you may come in contact with while at the gym increases exposure to bacteria.

Does this mean you should think twice before exercising? Of course not; exercise-related skin damage can be prevented and treated.

7 Common Skin Problems Caused By Exercise

Dry Skin +
Commonly experienced by women who do high endurance training, dry skin is a result of the high sodium content released through perspiration. Eczema sufferers frequently see dry patches on their skin due to perspiration. This can make skin wrinkle and make you look older than you really are.
Over-Redness +
Women who have rosacea are prone to severe flushing during a workout. This is due to the higher number of capillaries, which are aggravated by vasodilation, the normal dilatation of blood vessels, which decreases blood pressure when you exercise.
Sun Damage +
Skipping sunblock can lead to premature aging caused by sun exposure. The effects are exacerbated when you sweat or when you are exercising around snow, water, or sand. Sweat increases skin’s photo-sensitivity and sunlight is reflected from two directions, and not just from above, around snow, water or sand. Sun also aggravates acne, which makes sunblock an essential element of your skincare routine.
Itchiness And Hives +
If you suffer from allergies, you may be more prone to experiencing itchiness and hives after a workout. This is caused by a specific type of white blood cell associated with allergies, which releases histamine as the body’s temperature rises during exercise, causing allergy symptoms.
Acne Flare-Ups +
Acne flare-ups are often caused by hand or object-to-face contact, which transfers oil and bacteria to the face and clogs the pores. Other bacteria-ridden culprits that aren't as noticeable are headphones, sports bras, towels, and exercise equipment.
Chaffing +
Painful irritated skin, also known as chaffing, is caused when sweat and fabric rub against each other during a workout. This can even hit sensitive spots like the thighs and nipples.
Excessive Sebum Buildup +
Exercise triggers the body’s release of stress hormones, which include cortisol. Cortisol triggers glands in hair follicles that increase sebum production. Sebum is essential but too much of it can block the follicle, which in turn can cause a build up of dead skin cells and lead to inflammation and acne.
