Your skin loses a lot of moisture when you're out in the sun all day, so make sure to help your body stay hydrated by drinking your daily eight cups of water. Also, choose your hydration source with care — note that most caffeinated drinks are actually diuretics that can leave you feeling even more parched after drinking them than you were to begin with.

Moisturize beyond your face
Moisturizing your face is a great place to start, but that's not the only area of your skin that needs hydrating. Your neck (and by extension, your upper chest area) is covered by sensitive skin. This area gets a lot of sun exposure and can be prone to dark spots and fine lines — so be sure to moisturize and use SPF!
A good diet and exercise does a whole lot of good for your skin. Since they're packed with skin-loving vitamins, eating your daily serving of fruits and vegetables will help your skin stay clear and healthy — in addition to keeping the rest of your body in order too (you know what they say about apples).

Sunscreen isn't just for the beach! Your skin goes through a lot under the sun, and studies show that it's this everyday exposure that contributes to premature aging on your skin. In other words, always be sure to apply year-round!
