*According to the American Heart Association, women who lift weights twice a week can prevent or at least slow the middle-aged spread. Their study showed that strength training with weights dramatically reduced the increase in abdominal fat in pre-menopausal women compared to similar women who merely received advice about exercise.

*Some sunscreen tips:
-apply sunscreen to clean, dry skin 30 minutes before sun exposure
-use even in the shade, because sand, concrete and water can reflect sun rays
-perspiration, exercise and swimming can remove sunscreen, so reapply often
-budget brands are just as effective as the more expensive brands
