There’s nothing like a good stretch – and a good sweat.
Whether you run, do yoga or hit the gym a diario, you know you’re all too familiar with that post-workout feeling. You know the one, the one that leaves you feeling sticky, yet lighter and amazing at the same time.
After a good work out, sweating is la verdad (actually) great for you. And I’m not just talking about the “feel good” factor here or the rosy cheeks you get after sweating it out.
When you sweat, your body actually flushes out toxins! Y eso nos gusta.
The human body is indeed amazing.
Sweating is one of the things the body does to keep itself healthy. It’s your built-in cooling and cleansing system!
Working up a sweat can soothe soreness, open up your pores (let the skin breathe!), allow the body to detoxify and improve your mood!
Experts say that human perspiration contains an antimicrobial peptide called dermcidin – algo técnico, which has been proven to fight some germs and dangerous pathogens.
Just like breathing, sweating is an important life function that has many benefits.
Still not convinced? Here are 3 more amazing ways sweating cleanses el cuerpo:
1. It clears your skin. Did you know that when you sweat, your pores open up – yuh huh, releasing all the grit and grime underneath your skin? It may seem gross, but hey, this is one of the ways your body cleanses the skin! And you know what happens when you have clean, glowing skin – you look and feel so much better! Belleza.
2. It pushes out the “junk”. It can rid your body of toxic materials that you inhale daily. Plus, it cleans out the dirt from the liver, blood and lymph system. Even better, it improves digestion! If you’re slightly constipated, believe me, a good sweat gets stuff done.
3. It cleanses you of negative energy. So you already know that exercising releases endorphins and other chemicals that naturally improve nuestro mood. But why? Well, when you move and sweat, muscles heat up, relaxing them and helping lower your stress levels!
So the next time you’re working out, remember that you are also purging out. Purging yourself of negative energy and feelings!
