8 Habits of Women With Perfect Skin
You don't need excellent genes to have great skin. We asked women ages 24 to 83 to share their perfect-skin secrets -- here's what they said
A study at McMaster University in Ontario found that after age 40, men and women who exercised frequently (think: three hours of moderate exercise a week) had skin that was closer to that of 20- and 30-year olds -- even if they were older than 65.
As for post-workout skin care: Dawn uses and acid-based cleanser if she's worked up a sweat with sunscreen on to head off breakouts, while Kristen, a 41-year-old from the Bay Area, always gets her cleansing in within an hour of sweating. Moral of the story? Don't let your sweat sit too long on your face, or say hello to acne.
Why you should try it: Exercise isn't just good for your body and mind. In fact, Jaliman says it is very important to the health of your skin because it increases the blood supply and flow to your skin, bringing it nutrients and making it healthier and glowier. Time to start actually using your Equinox membership.
