You can prevent this from happening by always wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
One thing you may not be aware of is the fact that you should reapply your sunscreen every two hours. Especially, if it is a hot day and you are sweating or if you go swimming.

3. Exfoliate Your Skin
If your skin is looking dull it may be because there are dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. You can remove dead skin cells by gently rubbing a loofah sponge over your face once you have applied your cleanser.
There are also daily peel pads available from some brands. These pads contain glycolic acid. When you use them daily they will remove dead skin cells and even out your skin tone.
Exfoliation can also help with wrinkle removal. However, if you prefer a more aggressive approach you can also get wrinkle removal injections.
