Did you know skin is the largest organ in our body? And did you know that we shed thousands of skin cells every minutes?
So it’s crazy to say that our skin is not important, everything in our body is . Hopefully, we love to look good, we are obsessed with it because we feel good when we look good, it’s part of human nature, and so does our skin.
Long years ago, humans had a healthy skin due to many reasons such as the shortage of stress in their lives, also the surrounding of nature in their environment, unlike us. In fact, our world is getting worse and it’s damaging us in our own health.

“You need to exercise”, you probably heard this any times in your life without truly taking the time to understand why you should exercise, and why people recommend exercising from the start.
The reason for that is we know intellectually that exercising is beneficial for us, mentally and physically, including our skin.
According to scientists, exercising is a form of movement that increases blood circulation, therefore more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the skin, which keeps it healthy and promotes collagen production and new skin cells that keeps the skin looking glowing, it’s very beneficial for anti-aging too.
Exercising frequently is more beneficial if not necessary for anyone who’s looking up to have a clearer skin in the future, because working-out frequently helps the skin heal its problems and it regenerates itself more often. But you don’t need to start working 3 hours everyday for 20 years to see the difference or the change, doing that can cause the opposite effect of healing the skin.
In other words, working-out according to your body over a period of time is more than enough to notice the change, while putting into consideration time for your body to rest.

2- Avoid frequent sun exposure:
Sun is essential to humans, it provides us warmth and lightening and many other vitamins that the body needs to stay healthy, but what about too much sun?
Scientists say that sunlight is comprised of varying wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. This radiation ranges from very short cosmic rays to very long radio waves.Ultraviolet rays generate free radicals that wreak havoc on cellular material. They are capable of altering not only the DNA but they may effect membranes surrounding the skin cells, destroying or altering enzymes and proteins required for cellular metabolism and affecting amino acids.
In other words, sun is a double-edged sword, too much or too little sun is unhealthy, the sweet spot is staying in between, so our skin can have enough sunlight to properly develop.
