skin looking fresh this summer:
1. 8 glasses of water daily, besides juices or other fluids.
2. Try to avoid running between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun's intensity is at its greatest.
3. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially those which are rich in vitamin C, which plays a major role in keeping the skin looking healthy.
4. Slather on your sunscreen at least 20 minutes before you head out for your run. Your skin needs time to absorb the lotion.
5. Eat vitamin E-rich foods, such as almonds, walnuts, and avocado. Vitamin E helps keep the skin moist and prevents its dehydration.
6. You can get a sunburn in as little as 15 minutes, so don't think doing a short run means you don't need sunscreen.
7. Avoid highly salted foods, and avoid adding extra salt to your food.
8. A good pair of UV blocking running sunglasses give your face more protection and also help protect your eyes from the sun's damaging rays.
