During summer, your skin works hard to keep itself healthy.

With the rise in temperature these days, heat and humidity can make your skin look dull. You need to make sure that your skin is protected from the sun all season long!

A few simple changes in your everyday skincare routine can keep your skin rejuvenated.

Here are some tips to protect your skin from the sun:

1. Do not forget your sunscreen

This is a must-have item in your dressing table or bag.

You must apply at least one ounce of sunscreen on your face and any other exposed parts of your body around 15 to 30 minutes before heading out to avoid sunburn, wrinkles, and premature aging.

Reapply sunscreen if you stay in the sun for more than two hours.

2. Do not forget the lips

You should also use a lip balm or lipstick which contains sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.

3. Avoid midday sun

Whenever possible, avoid the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon. If you tend to go out during that time, try to find a shaded place to sit down or walk.

4. Clothing

Wear a long-sleeved shirt and long pants when possible.

Dark-colored clothing with tightly woven fabric tends to block more rays of the sun than light-colored or loosely woven fabrics.

5. Take care of your eyes

Always keep your sunglasses in your bag or car. As much as it enhances your whole summer look, it also protects your eyes from the UV rays and reduces the risk of cataracts.

Sunglasses also protect the tender skin around your eyes.

Try to use sunglasses with lenses that have 99% to 100% UV absorption to provide optimal protection for the eyes and the surrounding skin.

6. Wear a hat

For the best protection, wear a hat with a brim. This will protect your face, ears, and the back of your neck.
