Stick to a skincare routine

Most of the skincare products work only when used on a consistent basis. A regular skincare routine can thus help keep your skin healthy

Cover your skin when you’re outdoors

It is essential to protect your skin from direct exposure to sunlight. A pair of huge sunglasses, a hat with a wide brim or even just a scarf can get the job done

Switch off the AC once in a while

Air conditioners tend to absorb the humidity and moisture from the air, leaving your skin dry. It is important to switch them off in intervals

Drink more water

Staying hydrated is the best way to keep your skin fresh. About eight to 10 glasses of water a day is a must

Take the right diet

Certain foods help to keep the skin hydrated naturally. Cucumbers, avocados and tangerines are a few of them

Use a sunscreen

It is essential to use sunscreen with a high SPF value especially when you step out

Try home remedies 

A mix of olive oil and sugar can help exfoliate the skin. Coconut oil and aloe vera gel are also good alternatives of moisturizers
