SWEAT: WHY IT IS GOOD FOR YOU
When you are sweating profusely, the heart is pumping harder to help cool you down. With the heart working harder, circulation increases. The harder you work and the more you sweat, the more you are strengthening your heart muscles.
BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
When you start to sweat, the body reacts similarly to when you have a fever. The body actually tries to fight the high temperature as if it were fighting a disease, which in turn strengthens your white blood cells and boosts your immune system.
WEIGHT LOSS/RIDS YOUR BODY OF YUCKY TOXINS
Sweating has been discussed heavily as a tool for weight loss. The weight that you lose through sweating is water weight. This weight is quickly replaced when you replenish your fluids. However, activities that lead to sweating often burn up calories. Sitting in a sauna uses up energy as your body tries to restore your normal temperature. If you are sweating because you have been exercising, you have been burning calories. Sweating is a good goal to incorporate as part of a weight loss program because it means that your body is eliminating toxins and burning up calories. Just be sure to make sweating a part of a larger program of balanced nutrition and exercise for a maximum effect.
Sweating can be very relaxing for both your body and your mind. When you sweat, your body's muscles are warmed up by humidity and heat. This helps to release the stress and fatigue brought on by muscle tension.
Exercise gets the blood flowing, and that increased blood flow carries more oxygen to the skin. The boost in blood flow and oxygen to skin cells also carries nutrients that improve skin health, supporting all the effort you make with moisturizers and other skin care products on the skin surface. When you exercise, your skin begins to produce more of its natural oils that help skin look supple and healthy ─ just remember to cleanse your face gently as part of your skin care routine when you shower to prevent any breakouts.
