Well, it’s summertime and that means you probably have a lot of free time. That free time can be spent exploring the outdoors, hanging out with friends, or maybe just lounging by the pool. Regardless of when you have your free time, one thing is for certain: You’re going to be spending a lot of it outside.

Water is essential for keeping skin young and fresh. Drinking water throughout the day also helps reduce puffiness and dark circles around your eyes. In fact, most anti-aging creams are supposed to hydrate your skin when applied topically. While it’s important to stay hydrated, it’s even more important to stay out of the sun. If you absolutely must go out and about, wear a hat that covers your skin. Wear a layer of clothing, such as a jacket or sweatshirt. If possible, wear reflective strips or wear a reflective backpack. When it comes to drinking water, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day. Water alone will not give your skin the hydration it needs. You should drink water with a pinch of salt, which helps your body retain more water.
Protect your skin with a sunscreen
Sunscreens are made to protect your skin from UV rays. It goes without saying that you need sunscreen every day. You can even make your own sunscreen using a spray bottle and coconut oil. This DIY sunscreen is absolutely free and you can find more information below. There are a few things to keep in mind when using sunscreen. Remember, your skin gets less hydrated when it’s exposed to the sun. That means that if you apply sunscreen before going out, your skin will be less hydrated. That being said, make sure you apply sunscreen before heading outside. Exposing your skin to the sun without sunscreen it first is a false sense of security. It’s also important to remember that sunscreen needs time to absorb into your skin. Therefore, you should apply it 15-20 minutes before heading outside.
Be mindful of the food you eat
