People of all ages, both male and female, benefit from regular physical activity. Significant health benefits can be obtained by including a moderate amount of physical activity (e.g., 30 minutes of brisk walking or raking leaves, 15 minutes of running, or 45 minutes of playing volleyball) on most, if not all, days of the week. Through a modest increase in daily activity, most people can improve their health and quality of life. Physical activity reduces the risk of premature mortality in general, and of coronary heart disease, hypertension, colon cancer, and diabetes mellitus in particular. Physical activity also improves mental health and is important for the health of muscles, bones, and joints. This category contains topics on cardio exercises and weightlifting, spiritual exercises like yoga and tai chi, outdoor activities like running, cycling, skiing, so take your pick!

Skin & Hair problems

The skin is the body's protective covering. However, it is not an insensitive wall. It is alive, and its cells are constantly multiplying to replace cells shed from the top of the horny external layer.
Many bacteria and fungi (germs) normally live on the skin - some of them helpful and most of them harmless. When the skin is healthy, there is a balance between the skin cells and bacteria and fungi. A number of causes, such as exposure to chemicals or germs not normally found on the skin, can upset this balance. If the body's defences are down, this can lead to diseases. Hair can also be defined as a form of skin and cause us a lot of problems.
The most common skin and hair problems: acne, herpes, impetigo, prickly heat, scabies, tinea, losing hair, having excessive hairs, brittle hairs, ingrown hairs ...
