Hydration is the ticket to glowing skin:
You need to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day to withstand the dehydrating effects from all the running around. Especially after a night of partying, your body needs to recover.
The easiest way is to stick to the 8x8 rule, which is 8oz of 8 glasses of water throughout the day. Or you could switch things up with lemon water. This adds flavour to the drink, making it easy to gulp down. It flushes out toxins giving you soft and glowing skin. Most importantly, it helps to balance your skin’s pH levels.
Switch to washing your face over makeup wipes:

Abstain from vices:

Unlike non-smokers, smokers have prominent signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. And, it is time to eschew from the habit of smoking.
And, you might want cut down caffeine as it dehydrates your skin, and in certain cases can trigger acne.
Wear sunscreen—regardless of the season:
Whether you love makeup or not, you must have this product with you!
The most important rule is— lather yourself in sunscreen. Abide by this golden rule. Skipping on sunscreen can result in blemishes, sunburns and premature wrinkles.
