Yet another reason to get up and get moving sweat! New research suggests that certain skin infections may be avoided by working up a good sweat. Researchers from Eberhard Karls University in Germany have discovered dermcidin in human sweat. This natural antibiotic can limit disease-causing bacteria responsible for skin infections like impetigo. So, add healthier skin to the growing list of reasons for incorporating regular exercise into each day.
