All the tips and treatments not to end up with a "runner's face"
Do you like to run or ride a bike every day? Careful you could become a "Runner's Face"
In the United States, they call "runner faces" women who practice so much physical activity in the open air, with the skin aged by the sun, the face dug out of excess sport.
While moderate physical activity is healthy and helps us prevent cardiovascular disease, improve immune defenses and stay fit, excess sports is bad for skin health.
This happens for two important reasons: when you burn too much you lose fat and then your face also empties, losing tone. As if that were not enough, the production of free radicals, responsible for aging, increases.
A recent study by the Department of Dermatology at Charité University in Berlin and published in an authoritative medical journal (European Journal of Applied Physiology) found that the ideas on the subject were clarified. The research claims that it is enough to pass three 30-minute workouts a week, to increase the amount of free radicals of the epidermal tissue by 20% and, at the same time, decrease the presence in the epidermis of beta-carotene and lycopene, which are used by the body to fight the free radicals produced in the effort.
This decrease in natural antioxidants results in greater aging and shorter skin aging.
What to do then if you do not want to give up jogging every day?
First of all, "run" immediately to the shelters, because according to the German study, the skin needs antioxidants in the 100 minutes after the end of training.
So here are all the beauty tips of Dr. Elisabetta Casale of the Glass Onion science team:
"After showering apply immediately a powerful antioxidant such as V2 anti Age serum in vials. V2 is a shock treatment – to be done in the cabin or at home – with the highest concentration of pure vitamin C and vitamin E. Vitamin C in addition to being a powerful antioxidant also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The serum also contains plant stems that regenerate the epidermal tissue. A real cure-all after the run."
Always remember to use a sunscreen that is also anti-ageing in winter before you go for a run. You can choose between a 30 protection, best suited in winter and a suitable 50 during the summer period. Staminalis' 30 face/body sunscreen, in addition to the high UV protection, preserves the integrity of the skin by protecting it from sun damage thanks to its phytoceutic complex, composed of Stem Stem Plant Extracts of Buddleja and wheat germ oil, vitamin C, vitamin E with the powerful enzyme SOD (Superoxide Dismutase that captures and counteracts free radicals).

Finally, help yourself with the diet: for the epidermis of those who do sports it takes mainly carotenoids, which are found in higher concentrations in carrots, spinach and tomatoes, in which, if mature, lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, also abounds. The advice is not to peel them, because the lycopene, in fact, is mainly contained in the peel.
Now you just have to go back to training, good training at all! And I recommend, don't get a runner's face!"
