Runner's Face: Can Intense Exercise Cause Premature Aging

Solution» Runner's face

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.

GetFitBrooklyn testimonial


I have to say that I was blown away by the quality of the products! There simply is no other way to put it. And what surprised me most was that I wasn't the only one to notice that my skin looked better; people complimented me for having this "certain glow".


I have a very sensitive skin (that easily gets irritated from sweating during workout and from the changing weather conditions here) and the Fré samples calmed and soothed my skin directly after the first use.
