Running & Skin Health

Healthy, glowing skin is a lifestyle - Running (and exercise in general) can supplement your skincare! 🏃🏽‍♀️

1. Endorphins are released in the skin as a result of exposure to ultraviolet light. This means being outdoors stimulates a happier mood, and reduces stress levels. However, too much UV radiation can also be damaging to the skin so it is important to use SPF-containing products to protect against UV-induced damage to skin cells. Try our Active SPF15 moisturiser to hydrate, nourish and protect your skin.

2. Running/exercise also increases blood flow to the skin, delivering oxygen and nutrients to your cells that help promote a healthy complexion and maintain skin elasticity.

3. Sweating is also your body’s natural way to flush out any toxins from the skin, reducing breakouts. However, it is important to wash and wipe away the sweat to prevent bacterial build-up on the skin. Try our Phoenix Cream or Foam cleanser to wash away the impurities.

Don’t forget to hydrate your skin and body on your runs by drinking plenty of water, misting your face with a Somic face mist, and rolling on a Somic lip balm.
