Skin Tips For Your 20's

While women in their 20s face a myriad of skin issues, from acne to the first signs of aging, one of the most important things is to stick to a regimen. While your skin is at its most resilient, healthiest point, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. Once those practices are set in place you can ensure much younger-looking skin in the years ahead. Keep reading below for my advice on taking care of skin in your 20s.

  1. Start the day with a gentle cleanser. Cleansers should remove dirt and oil on the skin, but shouldn't be abrasive. A fragrance-free morning face wash with moisturizer is ideal.
  2. Invest in a good, overall eye cream, as eyes tend to show the first signs of aging. Start using an eye cream with caffeine to reduce morning puffiness. Also look for ingredients like antioxidants and retinol to slow down the aging process.   
  3. Use a moisturizer with sunscreen -- this is the most important health habit. Recent studies showed that wearing a daily sunscreen on the face reduced one's risk of developing melanoma by 50%. Look for one SPF30 or higher that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
  4. At night, remove all of your makeup, every night, no exception. Makeup can clog pores and lead to acne.
  5. Cleanse again at night with a gentle cleanser. Your skin does most of its repair work at night, so it's really important to make sure its thoroughly clean.
  6. If you're still experiencing breakouts, spot treat pimples with salicylic acid.                 
  7. Incorporate retinol into your routine. Vitamin-A (which is what retinol is derived from) fights wrinkles and helps to prevent breakouts.
  8. Exfoliate a few times a week.

  2. I thought I wouldn't have to worry about ageing until my late 20's but I've found that I now have eye bags parked right under my eyes regardless of what I do. I generally drink lots of water but this has not helped. What good eye creams can you recommend to reverse the ageing process?
