I was cycling and noticed a person in front of me, about 1/4 of Km ahead. I could tell he was cycling a little slower than me and decided to try to catch him. I had about a km to go on the road before turning off.

Summer is upon us in all its glory.  There’s nothing quite like glowy, dewy, radiant summer skin.  Most of us,  while taking care of our complexion during the warmer months can feel like a full-time job.
