It's summer.  Which means you're going to be outside. A LOT.  With the abundance of outdoor music festivals, beach trips, rooftop day parties and brunches that summer brings, skin care is usually the last thing on anyone's mind. 
Summer usually has that get-up-and-go feel but here's a few key things to remember in order to keep your skin healthy and radiant this summer.

3) WATER!!!!  Drinking water and consuming foods with a high water content are essential for keeping your skin glowing and healthy.  Try adding foods like watermelon, broccoli and tomatoes to your diet to ensure you meet your proper water intake.
