What skin care methods work for women in their 20s?
In your 20’s the goal is to preserve and protect your skin. Many skin issues at this age might be due to lifestyle – partying too much, pulling all nighters, forgetting to wash make up off. It’s important to start a consistent skin routine that can counteract the effects this type of living can have on skin. The ideal regimen would be:
- Cleanse: Choose a gentle cleanser that can remove make up and any dirt but that doesn’t dry out your skin, to use in the morning and at night to wash the face.
- Moisturize: Use a lightweight moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. Wearing sunscreen daily throughout the year is one of the most important things you can add to your skin care regimen to minimize skin ageing.
- Double down: Add in an antioxidant serum. This is applied underneath your moisturizer.
