The Simple Face Lift

Workouts for your complexion as well as body

You know that exercise is brilliant for the body, but did you know it can really improve your skin too? It’s true! Exercise helps increase the heart rate and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. So skin can look less sallow and more radiant as a result!
That’s why we’ve worked with Simple Fitness Expert, Anna Reich, to develop an innovative programme of exercises specifically designed to have a positive impact on your skin as well as your body - from ‘anti-ageing facial workouts’ to exercises which target each section of the body.
Simple skin benefits...
• Regular keep-fit sessions can help relieve fatigue and improve posture which can alleviate stress. When we feel less stressed it can show improvements in our skin too!
• Stretching exercises are great for de-stressing and encouraging better sleep. And the more sleep we get, the more time our body has to repair and regenerate, helping us look younger for longer and help reduce stress-induced wrinkles and dark circles.
