In this busy world, we have never paid attention to the ones which we almost do regularly. There are thousands of things you never know!!

Below mentioned some are actions performed by our body.


yawnWe not only yawn when we are tired but also due to lack of breathing. Yawning helps to breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. It allows the brain to cool down when overburdened with work.



When you come across allergic things, dust, plucking eyebrows, etc. we sneeze. The dust present in the nasal cavity gets cleared out when sneezed.

This occurs due to high moisture content in our body. It effects on the skin of the aged persons. Oil present in the skin decreases once aging starts.

It should be prevented by applying different kinds of sunscreen lotions and moisturizers and stop smoking.
