"Hydration is always important for our skin, but even more so in the summer," says Ostad. Aim for eight glasses of water a day, which Ostad promises will have "great results" when it comes to your skin. Hydration can also help skin recover after a sunburn — but we know you're all too smart to get those in the first place. Never forget to apply sunscreen. It's an important step.

Before you begin applying foundation and concealer, put on a light layer of sunscreen specifically designed for facial use. It'll help keep your face protected from UV rays.
