4. Exfoliate your face and lips regularly and keep a lip balm or lip conditioner on you all the time to prevent drying ou of your lips.
 
5. Acne breakouts are very common during summers. If you face frequent acne breakouts, use a good anti-acne face wash, recommended by your trusted dermatologist only for cleansing.
