4 Wellness Activities To Try This Month

While incidental exercise should not replace the exercise that we should be doing regularly, increasing how much incidental exercise we do daily can help us in maintaining our overall health.

Skin is waterproof (else how can we bathe/swim!), and apart from blocking out water, our epidermis also prevents many other harmful elements from entering our skin.    But this begs the question - if our epidermis is so good at keeping stuff out of our body (especially water!) how effectively can the good stuff get in to...

The sun's rays can be particularly strong when the plane is high up, so remember to apply sunscreen generously or bring a hat along - especially if you're sitting beside the windows! Bring along a facial mist for some hydration in the air as well. (But remember to blot any excess mist droplets so you don't end up dehydrating your face instead — this is because facial mists usually evaporate if applied without a...
