How to store oil paints properly?

Oil paints are sensitive to air, moisture, high temperatures, and direct sunlight. When they are exposed to air and moisture, they tend to harden up and become brittle. At the same time, if the paints are kept under direct sunlight, the colors will start to fade with time.
