Your fitness and beauty regimens have more in common than you think. Lifting weights causes microscopic tears in muscle fibers so that they repair themselves stronger. “Similarly, exfoliating breaks down dead skin cells, spurring new cell growth and collagen production,” explains Kathy Fields, M.D., a derm in San Francisco. And just like you need to stick to a regular strength training routine to sculpt sexy muscles, a consistent skin-care routine is crucial for gorgeous, glowy skin.
Just a friendly reminder: Your skin is the largest organ in your body, so take extra care of it and it will do the same in return.
