The Science

Numerous studies and specialised books have empirically proved that exercise training causes adaptations in the skin blood flow response as well as in the cutaneous microvascular activity. Working out increases blood circulation which brings new nutrients and oxygen to the cells which improves cellular turnover, collagen production and the delivery of active ingredients. Whilst you’re being active, your skin is also working hard as the tiny arteries on the face open up allowing more blood to reach the skin’s surface and deliver nutrients which help fibroblasts (the collagen producing cells) work more efficiently. Pores are also open and as long as they are clean and unclogged, they are in the most receptive state outside your induced pore opening facial. There is no other time when the skin finds itself in such a profound circumstance and we want to leverage it. We are the first and only ones to do it.
