If we’re being really honest, people often think about the cosmetic benefits of a healthy lifestyle before many others. After all, it can improve our weight, body image, and skin. It’s especially common when you’re younger, when you think you’re invincible and fitting into your ideal clothes size is the goal of that diet or exercise regime.
