Sunscreen first: If you can’t avoid the sun from 10 am until 2 pm, then use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from harmful UV and UVB rays. You can also wear a wide-brimmed hat and sun protective clothing with UPF 50 to shield you from harmful rays.

Try dry brushing : Dry brushing has been around a long time. This technique includes a good dry brush that’s designed to exfoliate your skin while unclogging pores and increasing circulation.
