Walk your way to Younger Skin

Exercise flushes toxins and improves cell regeneration for a healthy, youthful glow.

If you already think of exercise as the fountain of youth, you’ve been paying attention. After all, it helps us to feel good, look good, and stay limber and independent. Climbing up a steep hillside to catch a glimpse of the sun setting, for instance, gives you an invigorating and powerful sense of self. Huffing and puffing up a flight of stairs? Not so much. But one benefit of exercise that you most likely rarely think about is how it affects your skin. Physical activity increases circulation throughout the body. Better blood flow to these regions means an influx of nutrients and a flushing of toxins. For the skin, this means quicker healing and cell regeneration, which promotes a more youthful glow. So get out for a daily walk, run or activity of your choice, and watch what happens — as long as you don’t mind whistles.

For the Love of the Pooch!

Give your dog the love he gives you. Keep him out of murky freshwater ponds. Toxins in blue-green algae can be hazardous to his health.

A furry friend offers many health benefits, so return the favor by taking good care of your dog. There’s nothing better than getting out into the great outdoors with the family and your pet for a lovely autumn hike. And if you’re anything like us, you probably think nothing of letting your dog frolic in whatever body of water he happens upon. However, some freshwater ponds contain blue-green algae, which contain toxins that can cause dogs to suffer from gastrointestinal distress like vomiting or diarrhea, liver failure or possibly death. If you approach a lake or pond and the water is green, YOU and your pet should avoid it. Though not as dangerous to humans, blue-green algae can cause skin rashes, sneezing, coughing, a runny nose and eye irritation in people.
