Promoting Exercise as a Beauty Essential

GD Star Rating


The benefits of exercise in terms of the beneficial impact on beauty have long been established. It is suggested that exercise improves skin complexion by regulating blood flow and it decreases obesity. The proposed paper evaluates the link between beauty and exercise in a scientific manner and explores the relationship between the two variables. The paper discusses various elements of the two variables to form a relationship.

Literature Review

Significant work has been done pertaining to the effect of exercise in beauty. Clarke & Griffin (2007) mentions energy expenditure due to physical activity is the most variable of our total energy expenditure (15% in sedentary individuals and more than 50% for a person practicing intense physical activity). Often expressed the energy expenditure associated with a given activity “PAL” (physical activity level): report of the total energy expenditure in the resting energy expenditure (Sarwer, Grossbart, & Didie, 2003).

For men, the risk of overweight increased significantly when the PAL is less than 1.8. For women, it seems that the threshold is closer to a PAL of 1.6, which means that exercise produces a slimming effect on women more easily than men (Todd, 1998).

Bell (2007) discusses another effect that occurs with regular exercise: the body adapts and prepares to make this effort regularly. To do so, he learns to eat more fat quickly (in case of stress, muscles consume sugars, then if the effort continues fats, which normally takes several tens of minutes). This extra fat consumption continues after the effort, which also reduces the unwanted cravings (due to a lack of sugar) and helps to maintain a sensible diet (Bell, 2007).

Everything happens as if the exercise allowed our bodies to learn (or relearn, as in our youth) to burn fat. Although the effects of exercise on lipodystrophy are unclear, a mixture of aerobic and resistance exercise may help to reduce the accumulation of fat in the abdominal area. Resistance training (with or without aerobic exercise) can improve the weight and constitution, which gives a body mass index and lower arms and thighs bigger, good news for people with syndrome HIV wasting (Bell, 2007).


The proposed research method for this paper is secondary research analysis. The purpose of secondary research analysis is to learn from the contribution of the researches which have already been done on the topic. It is an important phase of the research for it saves wastage of resources by repeating what has already been done on the topic. Secondly, it helps to refine the research problem and to give direction to the research.
Researches in the area of internet governance are relatively easy to access for they are widely available through different research portals (Welman and Kruger, 1999). Also, the focus of the research will be much better identified through secondary research for gaps in existing knowledge will be found out.

It is also possible to employ expert interview for this research. Expert interview is a qualitative method of research which involves in-depth interviews with a research participant. The interview is not entirely structured and involves considerable skill of the researcher to probe into various aspect of the research (Holloway, 1997).

This method brings to light several aspects of the problem which were originally not part of the study. Analysis of secondary research will be done using thematic analysis in which transcripts of interviews will be selected for their relevance to the research problem. Convenience sampling method will be used for selecting the participants for expert interviews.

The research will be qualitative given the nature of the research questions and its findings. It is anticipated that research findings will find a relationship between two variables through this approach because of time and resource constraints.


The paper discussed various elements of the two variables to form a relationship. It is concluded that the research will be qualitative and considerable work has been done on this topic to identify relationship between health and beauty.
