Your body loses a lot of moisture everyday. During this season, the quantity of fluid loss increases even more. Hence, it is essential to consume the correct amount of water on a daily basis. It is recommended by professionals to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Never underestimate the power of the right moisturizer, and don't forget to exfoliate at least once every week to encourage your skin to absorb more moisture!

2. Sun Protection Factor (SPF)
Too much of anything is bad, the same holds true for sunlight. It is important to find the right sunscreen to prevent skin damage and sunburn. SPF ranges from 2 to 100+ and is a key indicator about the product's ability to block out or screen the sun's damaging rays. Simply put, it indicates the level of protection against sunburn. If you have light skin and cannot stay out in the sun for at least 5 minutes without getting sunburned, SPF 10 which provides 50 minutes of protection is ideal. SPF 15 lets you stay out for 1 hour and 15 minutes while SPF 30 will provide sun protection for at least 2.5 hours.
In other words, if you choose a sunscreen with an SPF 30, you can be out in the sun 30 times longer than you can without sunscreen before you get a sunburn.
Most dermatologists recommend the use of a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or greater. If you have fair skin, it's best to use a sunscreen with a higher SPF.3. Clothing
If you can't resist the bright outdoors, leave the house with proper sun protection. Wear a hat, preferably one with a brim that is at least 3 inches around because the sun's damaging rays can reach your face, scalp or ears and leave them unprotected. Opt to wear denser fabrics and paler shades as they can give more protection than bright or dark colors - these absorb more UV rays.
