The Benefits of Extra-Curricular Activities

**Advertisement Feature**

Joining a club or pursuing a hobby outside of school is a fun way for your child to try new things, meet new people and stay active. These extra-curricular activities might include dance groups, football teams, swim clubs, horse riding, scout groups or even charity work. They can also be a great way for your child to learn a new skill or sport too. 

By taking part in extra-curricular activities, your child will get the chance to develop a number of important personal skills that will benefit them both socially and academically. It will give them a chance to meet new people and make new friends outside of their school groups and often gaining a sense or freedom or independence they often do not get from school or home.

Your skin takes beating after beating with the passage of time. Sun damage is one main problem you may face. However, it is important to note that even staying out of the sun for your whole life wouldn't prevent all skin damage. All sorts of other internal and external things can also affect your skin health. Even time itself is no friend to your skin, since it causes hormone production levels to change drastically within your body.
