Hydrate from the inside out (drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables) and from the outside to the inside (applying a good moisturizer and serum for your blemished skin type when you wake up and before bed);
Use sunscreen daily and in sufficient quantity (half a teaspoon for each application on the face), even when spending all day indoors.
