Protect your skin from the sun. That means using an SPF 30 sunscreen on your face every day, even on days you don’t plan to leave the house or office and even on days the sun doesn’t shine.
That’s because you’re still exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays through windows and clouds. Thankfully, today it’s easy enough to ensure sunscreen coverage; many moisturizers and even liquid and powder makeup contain sunscreen.
When you are in the sun, slather on the sunscreen. Wear a broad-brimmed hat; those baseball caps might be cute, but they’re not doing much to keep the sun off your ears and the back of your neck.
Protect your skin from dryness. The epidermis is made up of about 30 percent water, much of which is bound in the lipids that help prevent the water from evaporating. You can increase your skin’s ability to bind water by using a good-quality moisturizer.
