While teenage is the time to fight back against acne, your 20s is when your acne finally clears up and you start feeling great about your skin. But, that doesn’t mean you should stop caring about your skin and start taking it for granted.
If you don’t care for your skin properly in your 20s, you might end up having a lot of skin troubles in your 30s, which could mean even more expenses.
It’s is never too early to start caring for your skin. If you don’t have a dedicated beauty regime yet, it is time you start one. Here are six skin care tips you should follow if you are a 20-something:
- Start your routine with a cleanser
A cleanser is one of the most important skin care products for women. It should be a part of your morning and night skincare routine. For your morning routine use a milk-based cleanser like Neutrogena Rapid Clear Oil-Control Foaming Cleanser to get in the moisture and for the night you could first remove your makeup with wet wipes like Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes before using your cleanser.
- Wear SPF every day
Even if you aren’t going out of the house for the whole day, wear an SPF sunscreen. You are constantly exposed to ultraviolet rays and protection is necessary. When you are at home, you can use one of an imported face moisturizer with SPF 15 like Olay Total 7-in-1 UV Moisturizer SPF 15. When you are out, use at least SPF 40. If you have an oily skin, it’s best to go for an oil-free sunscreen like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen
- Invest in a good eye cream
The skin around your eyes is very thin and needs extra protection. If you don’t care for it well in your 20s, you could get wrinkles and puffy eyes earlier than anticipated. Apply eye cream every night before going to bed and add it to your night skincare routine. If you haven’t used an eye cream ever, L’Oreal Advanced Revitalift Double Eye Lift Cream is a great eye cream to start with.
- Use both cold and hot water to wash your face
Hot water helps open your skin pores, while cold water helps to close them. So, when you are washing your face, use hot water to open up the pores first before applying your face wash so that your pores can be easily cleaned. Finally, rinse off the face wash with cold water. This way, you will have tightened skin and an everlasting glow.
- Eat healthy
What you eat, shows on your skin. A diet full of sugar, salt, and oil will show on your skin with acne. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods will make your skin look healthy and give it a healthy glow.
- Sleep adequately
A proper seven to eight hours of sleep every night is the secret to a healthy skin. When your body isn’t rested enough, it causes inflammation in your body, which then leads to unbalanced skin pH levels resulting in acne, pigmentation, and wrinkles.
With these simple tips, you will have a glowing skin in your 20s and it will also pay off as you get older.
