Exercise reduces cancer risk



A recent study was presented at the American Association for Cancer Research’s 7th Annual International Conference suggesting that regular physical activity can lower a woman’s overall risk of cancer. However, in order to gain the advantages, exercise must be coupled with getting adequate sleep. Otherwise, the lack of sleep diminishes exercise’s cancer prevention benefits.

Studies have consistently shown that physical activity reduces the incidence of malignancies occurring in various parts of the body, including the breasts and colon. Insufficient or short duration sleeping patterns seem to counteract the benefits of exercise and can even have adverse effects on key bodily functions, such as the regulation of hormonal and metabolic systems. Although researchers cannot yet pinpoint the exact mechanism of how exercise reduces cancer risk, it is believed that physical activity modifies hormonal levels and immune function, and body weight is also an important contributing factor.

The benefits of exercise and nighttime rest affect the condition of your skin too. So make sure you get enough rest each night - sleep is essential for your body to rejuvenate and revitalize. As well, it’s the ideal time to nourish and rehydrate your skin. This crucial restful phase provides the perfect opportunity to allow your skin to absorb the active ingredients.
