In your 20s, you’re still quite young, but when it comes to skincare, it’s the time to seriously nurture that complexion. This is the time to rethink routine and give it a serious overhaul, but where do you even start?
There’s the anti-aging stuff, which many experts say is important to start sooner than later.
Here are tips to incorporate into your routine
EXFOLIATION: To continue daily collagen renewal, exfoliate daily. Products with salicylic, alpha, and/or beta hydroxy acids will help exfoliate dead skin cells and dirt off of the skin’s surface, as well as getting beneath the surface to unclog pores, prevent future breakouts, smooth texture, and boost cell renewal.
SPF: Sun is the number one cause of external skin aging, and people should care about this level of sun exposure since it’s not always thought about on a daily basis. It’s essential to protect ourselves at all times because incidental sun exposure is always present, regardless of the season, and contributes to premature skin aging. This is why the key to any healthy skin regimen is using a daily SPF product year round.
DIET AND EXERCISE: Drink a lot of fresh water with a squeeze of lemon every day—try for two or three liters. Eat fresh greens and a lot of fiber; supplement with vitamin D3. Exercise regularly
CLEANSE YOUR SKIN: Find a good cleanser
USE RETINOL: Not only is retinol a great anti-ager, but it also helps with keeping acne at bay, which makes the star ingredient a skincare favorite.
DON’T SLEEP WITH MAKEUP ON: No matter how tired you are, wipe off your makeup.
