    This time around in First Aid Mart we’ve got a great selection of topics for you. We cover some tips for keeping your skin healthy in the spring sun, how to get rid of bothersome ingrown hairs, and much more!

    • Just because winter is finally gone, doesn’t mean you should rush out into the sunshine without a second thought. The sun can do serious harm to your skin, and there are certain precautions you need to take to protect it.
    • Most people know what good personal hygiene entails... but fewer people actually practice it. That usually doesn’t have major consequences in daily life, but in an emergency situation after a natural disaster that isn’t the case.
    • Ingrown hairs are irritating, unsightly, and can develop into a dangerous infection if left untreated. Be sure to remove them when they make themselves known, and to do it properly.
    • Staying healthy is more than just preventing illness and bandaging wounds; good health requires exercise as well. If you’re not a fan of the gym, that’s ok... according to experts, good health is something you can walk your way towards.
    • The last thing anyone wants is to be face-to-face with a medical emergency, but it’s something that no one can control. It’s important to be prepared.
    • To wrap things up we talk more about staying healthy through exercise. The level of activity it takes to stay fit may surprise you.
  • Not Another Workout...

    If you’re like many people, then you aren’t exactly chomping at the bit to get to the gym for your next workout. While more of us realize the importance of physical activity in staying healthy, it can be a lot harder to put those ideas into practice. For some reason, lifting weights, running laps, or doing time on various exercise machines is the last thing we want to do, regardless of the benefits.

    Luckily, frequent trips to the gym aren’t the only way to get in your daily-dose of physical activity, according to experts. Simply getting out of the house and walking for thirty minutes a day is usually sufficient for capturing all of the health benefits that exercising has to offer. While it may not give you that toned washboard stomach or larger biceps, walking daily can lower your risk of heart disease, control your weight, and help with midday fatigue.

    Thirty minutes a day might seem like a lot depending on your schedule, but there are always ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Most jobs offer a lunch break of 30 minutes to an hour, which is a perfect chance to eat, get some fresh air, and log your daily walk while you’re at it. Think outside of the box when it comes to getting your walk on, and there’s sure to be an opportunity.

    It’s a an unfortunate fact of life that medical emergencies happen. No matter how thoroughly you try to prevent them, there is always the real chance that someday you’ll be confronted with an emergency situation.

  • You Don’t Need a Gym to Stay Healthy

    It’s no secret that exercise is part of a healthy life, but that doesn’t make activities like going to the gym any more appealing for most people. If you’re one of the many who just can’t seem to “get into” a gym routine, don’t worry! According to health experts featured in a video on Web MD, it only takes 30 minutes of daily walking to garner most of the benefits that exercise has to offer your general well-being.
