Chances are you love it when your skin looks great, right? And while aging is an inevitable part of life, there are ways both men and women can help keep their skin fresh and glowing at any age.

This summer, try adding the following tips to your daily skin routine to get your glow on!

  • Drink lots of water! Water evaporates from your skin daily, so you need to constantly stay hydrated to avoid dry and saggy skin.1
  • Make your skin a little sweeter with honey. It’s rich in antioxidants, opens up pores and moisturizes the skin.2
  • Just say no to sunbathing and tanning salons!3
  • Make sure to wear a SPF 30 sunscreen daily, keep yourself covered when outside and avoid the sun if possible between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.3
  • Get enough sleep. Poor sleep quality can lead to bags under the eyes and stretch out your skin.4
  • Examine your body from the top of your scalp to the bottom of your feet for newly developed moles or older moles that have changed in size and/or color.5 Be sure to talk with your primary care doctor about any changes you’ve discovered.
