How does movement make your skin glow?
According to dermatologist Jordan Wang, increased blood flow to the skin is one big benefit of exercise and movement, because nutrient-rich blood can “flush out unwanted byproducts of skin cells and contribute to having a healthy glow.”
Today, Courtney McManus is joining us to share tips on how to use habit stacking to create movement and mobility into your life.
Courtney is a 40-something mom of 3 who started her personal training career in 2006. Posture has become a passion of Courtney's and she's here to talk about the importance of movement and how easy it can be to implement into your everyday routine.
