Be sure to drink water before you feel thirsty. Thirst is a sign that your body is already feeling dehydrated. Professionals recommend that you drink at least eight 8 oz glasses of water daily, which is amazing for your skin.

#3 Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen is your best weapon for protecting your skin from the sun. When choosing a sunscreen look for a broad-spectrum cream that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Be sure to reapply every 2 to 3 hours and immediately after swimming. If you think you don’t need sunscreen on cloudy days, think again! Without sunscreen you can receive significant sun damage, even when it’s overcast.
