This healthy skin habit cannot be stressed enough. Sun can cause normal tanning to chronic discolouration to your skin. Avoid going out between 10 am to 4 pm because sun’s heat is at its maximum intensity during this time. If you must step out in the sun, wear a high SPF sunblock 20 minutes before leaving the house. SPF 15 is not sufficient anymore; use at least SPF 30. Image Courtesy: Getty
While you are out in the sun, wear long sleeved shirt and full-length trousers in order to avoid exposing your skin to sunlight. You may want to wear dark coloured clothes which do not let sunlight reach your skin. To protect your face, wear a hat which shades most part of your face. Image Courtesy: Getty

Exfoliation takes off dead skin cells; Use it a few times a week.

If you do not have an exfoliator, make one by mixing sugar or sand into liquid soap. Image Courtesy: Getty
