Benefits of Walking
Okay this might be a dumb question but is walking good for your skin? Cause since I've started to walk it looks different like it glows more! I know it's probaly good because you're increasing your metabolism and sweating releasing toxins.. Anyways if any of you know..

walking is very good for your skin
unlike other forms of exercise which can stress your skin, walking still increases circulation to your skin helping with problems such as dryness and dullness. it also helps with lyphatic drainage, so if you are retaining too much water it will help with that.
it can also help your skin to help itself deal with excess oil from sweating etc......

so yes its very good.
if you drink water while you're walking it will be even better

Ummm....kinda off the top of my head....you lose weight, you do get muscle but unlike running, you don't get huge football-player thighs (those are icky) and supposedly walking helps strengthen your bones and heart

I walk four to five miles every day....for me, it has helped keep me at a good weight (so that I can splurge on cookie-dough ice cream every once in a while, haha).

Plus, doing it outside, you get the vitamins/minerals you need from the sun (supposedly you need a certain amount of sunlight everyday to stay healthy).

Fresh air, exercise, burn calories, tone up, less impact on your joints than running and many other aerobic exercises, work the lungs, clear your mind, get some sun... I guess there are a lot!

Great exercise and I honestly believe it helped maintain my firm booty lol. Also one of the best things is that you don't even realise you're exercising.

agreed with Vainjane, cosmogrl5 and Belle Princesse, feeling much better body-and-soul-wise since walking 6km to the office every morning, even i have to wake up an hour earlier

Mmm I love walking. I despise any sports/gym activities, so walking is the only way for me to get some exercise. On weekends I try to walk for about 2 - 3hrs..it just really refreshens me.

I've begun taking the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator. I think it really can help tone your legs/butt, and like others said you don't even really feel like you're exercising. I feel good after I walk though..endorfins maybe?!

A very important one, it reduces the risk of getting varicose veins in your legs.
