Skin Care Tip:
During this time of

exposure, the risk multiplies. Of course, their increased
pigmentation does not offer any protection for the accelerated
aging effect the sun has on their skin.
To make the point,
check out the two pictures below:

Tibetian monk who spent practically all of his time indoors away

Sun block is an essential part of
an effective skin care regimen.

your eyes. Both areas should not be forgotten.

your body in alignment this way, until good posture is natural
to you. It's good to have a friend share this activity
with you so you can check each other out.
