2. Incorporate a daily moisturizer into your skincare/make-up regiment.
3. Spray it on - Tanning salons usually have spray tan deals that are rather inexpensive. One tan lasts seven to 10 days and gives skin a natural glow.
4. Incorporate foods with healthy fatty acids like omega-3s and monounsaturated fats into your diet. Examples of these are avocados, nuts, eggs and salmon.
5. Always apply sunscreen, even if it is cold and foggy out, especially to hands, face and neck.
