For most of us, weight loss is the main motivator for getting into shape. But there are a lot of other benefits to physical exercise. Believe it or not, regular physical activity can reduce the signs of skin-aging! Physical exercise increases blood flow throughout the body.

The skin appears to be thicker and has more collagen, the fibres that give the skin its strength and flexibility.
