If you are like most 20-somethings,hormones have settled and puberty-driven blemisheshave subsided. But now you have a new set of skincare concerns in your 20s everything from unexpected adult breakouts / blemishes to the early signs of ageing skin. With a few simple steps, however, you will have no problem keeping your skin beautiful and glowing.

Blemishes Still Rear Their Ugly Heads

The hormone surges and dreaded breakouts of your teen years may have levelled off, but you still have to deal with the hormone changes brought on by your monthly cycle. The most common time for breakouts is right before and during your period. Other common causes of breakouts for those in their 20s are stress, nutrition, and lack of sleep.

Signs of Ageing Already?

Ask any dermatologist what the one thing you can do today to prevent ageing skin tomorrow and you will get one sure-fire answer: wear sunscreen. Choose a moisturiser with a broad spectrum SPF 15 or higher. The SPF protects against UVA rays that cause signs of ageing and UVB rays that cause sunburns. Sunscreen should be applied every day, year round,even during the winter. 

4 Ways to Take Care of Your Skin Regimen for Those in Their 20s

  1. Cleanse. Cleanse your face twice daily to remove excess oil, dirt and make-up.

  2. Exfoliate. By sloughing away skin with an exfoliating cleanser or device, you are actually removing a layer of dead skin that would otherwise clog your pores. Exfoliating is an excellent way to prevent breakouts as it keeps skin looking radiant by increasing surface cell turnover.

  3. Moisturise. After cleansing, apply a moisturiser that contains a broad spectrum SPF of at least 15 . And do not forget the moisturiser at night. Take the time to hydrate by applying a moisturiser with key ingredients like aloe, vitamins E, B3 and pro-vitamin B5 that help keep your skin supple and radiant.

  4. Do Not Skip On Your Eyes. Your 20s is prime time to incorporate an eye cream into your daily routine. By hydrating the thin skin under your eyes, you will help relieve puffiness and dark circles and prevent future fine lines.

It is easy to maintain healthy-looking, fresh skin with a simple skin careregimen for those in their 20s. Taking care of your skin today will ensure your skin looks just as radiant and beautiful tomorrow.
