Drink More Water:

According to a study conducted by Boston College, “at least two-thirds of Americans pull up a quart short according to survey data.” Making it a priority to drink water is important. By setting reminders for yourself or carrying your favorite water bottle with you might be the push you need in order to become more hydrated.
Walk At Least 30 Minutes A Day:
- Instead of spending a ton of money on a gym membership that will probably go to waste, doing a simple task like walking can improve your overall health substantially. “Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance,” according to the Better Health Channel, “It can [also] reduce your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers.” Also, walking is free, and it doesn't require any type of skill or training — so anyone can do it at his or her convenience.

Don’t Forget The Sunscreen:
- No matter what your skin shade is everyone should slather on some sunscreen daily. According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., with two million people being diagnosed annually. And the myth that darker-skinned people do not need to wear sunscreen is debunked as Dr. Maria Peredo owner of the Spatique Medical Spa in Smithtown, N.Y., and clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, said “everyone should wear sunscreen, no matter what your skin color is."
Remove your make-up before bed:
- This is one of the most basic rules of any beauty regime. Your skin deserves a time to breathe at the end of the day. Night time is the time when skin repairs itself. No matter how exhausted you are, cleansing your face of the chemicals, dust and grime that settles on your face and clogs your skin pores is an absolute must. Recent studies proved that women who sleep with make-up on show faster signs of ageing and damaged skin, not to mention, acne.
