Clean Skin Is Happy Skin
One simple way to take care of your
skin is to keep it clean.
Keeping your hands clean is especially important
because your hands can spread germs to the skin on other
parts of your body.
When washing your hands, use water that’s comfortably
warm. Wet your
hands, and then lather up with a mild soap.
You should lather and rub everywhere, including the
palms, the wrists, between the fingers and under the nails.
Rinse well, dry thoroughly with a clean towel and
Sports are a wonderful way for kids
to get involved in extracurricular activities and stay fit.
There are lots of different types of sports for kids
to choose from.
No matter what sport you choose to play, it is important to
remember that a large part of enjoying and participating in
any sport is to be safe.
Having the right equipment, understanding the rules
of the game and keeping yourself protected from injury will
ensure that you can safely play sports and have fun.
