Exercise makes your body sweat that helps to remove the toxins from your body, but being lazy and not doing anything can make your skin more prone to pimples, patches & acne. Do not avoid exercise, it is better to do it when the sun is at its ease, early morning time or the dusk time. Indulge your body in walking, jogging or playing outside games. 

Do not touch your face frequently- It is the habit of many men & women to touch their frequently, this habit is not healthy for your skin. Your hand may be clean, but it always contains bacterias on them that may not be good for your skin. In our whole day, we touch many things and these things contains various microbes and if we have the tendency to touch our face most often, then these microbes can get on to your face and can have unhealthy symptoms such as acne, pimples.

In summers your body usually sweats to remove body toxins, but if your face is covered with makeup it will not get the space to move out of your body. However, the harmful toxins stay inside your body and have many negative effects on your skin or your overall health. Let your skin feel fresh, remove your makeup once you are back from your work.
