Summer nights mean hotter nights, so keep up with your skincare routine to keep pesky blackheads and acne at bay. This means taking your makeup off each night, using a toner, etc.
Most of us struggle to get the right amount of exercise each day, in some cases you have to get up super early before work to get a workout in or you wait until the evening and try to work it around everything else. No matter who you are or whether you have a gym membership or not, one exercise that you can do that is great for you is walking.
The studies have spoken, and walking is one of the best forms of exercise there is. If you don’t believe me, check out this study about walking groups: https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/49/11/710 Walking has been proven to help with weight loss, cardiac health, lower blood pressure, and decrease depression, while also giving you a boost creatively.
With all the different benefits, even 30 minutes of a brisk walk each night can make a huge difference for your health, and it’s easy enough to do. If you have time to binge several episodes of The Office on Netflix, you have time to fit in a walk.
Take care of your body and your skin by exfoliating once a week. This is good for face, arms, legs, and feet, to remove that excess dead skin that builds up.
