Nobody in their right mind will question the benefits that sports and exercise have on human health. But, when it comes to physical activity, like everything in life, there are two sides to the coin.
Sports and exercise can wreck your skin if you don’t take the necessary precautions to protect it.
How Does Physical Activity Affect Our Skin?
When you exercise your skin becomes exposed to harmful elements such as sweat, dirt, grime, and bacteria. Matters are only made worse if you exercise outdoors where the sun, harsh winds, extreme temperatures, and air pollution can further exacerbate the problem.
You must also take into account that when you exercise, your body’s oxygen consumption goes up, which has the direct effect of accelerating the oxidation of your skin cells.
Furthermore, even though sweat can be useful for your skin because it helps to eliminate toxins, if left on the skin, it can clump up with cellular debris, bacteria, and cosmetics, and this can severely clog your pores.
Moreover, the salts that make up human sweat, such as sodium, chloride, and potassium, can also dry your skin.
Consequently, if you practice exercise regularly but fail to take care of your skin, you will end up looking older and the worse for wear.
Thankfully, pre and post-exercise skincare does not have to be complicated.
Easy to use products such as ZIRI’s Argan Oil can do wonders for your skin.
What Is Argan Oil?
Argan Oil is a natural product that is obtained from the seeds of the Argan tree from southwest Morocco. It is a natural source of a plethora of vitamins and essential fatty acids that can help keep your skin healthy and possessing a youthful glow.
Although Argan Oil has been used for medicinal purposes, it has gained extreme popularity all over the world for its multiple cosmetic applications. Its absorption stimulates the regeneration of cells and creates a protective layer against many infectious agents that grow on the surface of human skin.
To top it all off, Argan Oil is rich in vitamin E and a host of other powerful antioxidants which serve to counteract the aging effects that free radicals have on our skin. Thus, few cosmetic supplements can claim to help prevent premature aging more effectively than Argan Oil.
Another exciting feature of Argan Oil is that, unlike other oils, it has the ability to absorb traces of fat. As a result, Argan Oil is a good option for those who practice sports or exercise regularly, since it can absorb the sweat and oils that accumulate on the face during intense physical activity.
Nevertheless, although its molecular composition is different from other essential oils, products made with Argan Oil are incredibly useful at hydrating the skin without having to use artificial chemicals. Its many essential fatty acids and antioxidant compounds help retain natural moisture, relieving dryness, and regulating skin pH.
