Is Your Face in Good Shape?

It’s the start of another new year and gym memberships are currently surging. This is when everyone wants to start fresh and finally become the best version of themselves. They also may want to work off the holiday sweets they’ve been enjoying since Thanksgiving! Going to the gym will get your body in better shape, but is your face in good shape?

Sweets, cold weather and plain old neglect can wreak havoc on the skin. Sugar can destroy the elasticity in your skin and cause you to break out. Going from the drying heat of the indoors to the frigid air outside can dehydrate your skin, which can break down collagen and cause wrinkles. The long winter months can make some people feel tired, or even a little depressed, which can make you a little more careless about your skincare. 

Getting Your Face in Good Shape

Some people worry that running and other high-impact exercises will cause aging. In fact, a character on the hit show Ally McBeal had a unique solution to keeping her face in good shape. The character Elaine Vassal, played brilliantly by Jane Krakowski, invented a “face bra” to mitigate the effects of jogging on her face. It turns out that running and other kinds of cardiovascular exercise are actually good for your skin, because they boost circulation and immunity. In real life, the best way to keep your face in good shape is by following some simple skincare rules.
