Watch Your Diet

It can also improve skin texture and appearance. Eat healthy fats such as eggs, nuts, fatty fish, and oil, they help to prevent aging.
Protection from Sun
The skin is sensitive to the sun and it is important to always take care of it. Severe exposure to sunlight can cause wrinkles, age spots, increase the risk of skin cancer, and other skin problems. Use sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 15. Depending on how long you’ll be exposed to the sun, you might need to reapply every two hours or more if you’re swimming or perspiring.
Ensure you get the right quality sunscreen that will give maximum protection. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., the sun is strongest during that time. If you must be out, seek shade or carry an umbrella. Cover your skin with protective clothing such as long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and wide-brimmed hats.
Washing your skin properly removes dirt and oils that accumulate, it also makes the pores appear larger. The skin excretes natural oils at night and having a proper bath is important when you wake up. You should shower before bed and after sweat or workout. Use warm water rather than hot water.
Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin, instead use mild cleansers. After washing gently pat dry your skin with a towel to have some moisture remain in your skin. This way the skin can absorb the excess moisture and re-hydrate itself. Use lukewarm water and a suitable cleanser to specifically wash the water. Apply moisturizer or lotion while your skin is still damp.
Drinking lots of water doesn’t hydrate the skin directly it helps the body systems to function better. Water helps the liver to eliminate toxins from the body, aids in the functioning of the kidneys, reduces puffiness, and prevents aging, eczema and psoriasis.
