Care For Your Skin in Your 20s With These 5 Efficacious Steps

The 20′s are the most important time for exploring career paths, figuring out life, as well as laying all the fundamentals and groundworks for preventative skincare – even if you are pretty much happy with that effortless radiant you wake up to every morning. The sins of your youth can take time to manifest themselves (at which point they’re much harder to ‘undo’), which is why we recommend you take the following steps, to prolong your skin’s glow and help keep lines at bay.

Starting a basic legit skin regime that incorporates proper cleansing, hydration, sun protection, and antioxidant protection against external & internal stresses, as well as sticking to good lifestyle habits may not reap jaw-dropping instant gratification, but in the long run, they’ll do more than any miracle time-reversing cream can. Think of it as one big high-five from your past self to your future self.

#1. Cleanse Carefully

It’s vitally important to give skin a chance to ‘breathe’, which means removing the day’s make up without fail. And remember to respect your complexion – exfoliation is amazing, but don’t overdo it. Use a physical or chemical resurfacing treatment once or twice a week (depending on skin’s tolerance), then choose an ultra-gentle cream or oil-based formula to dissolve grime and leave your face feeling refreshed.

Try Tosowoong’s Enzyme Powder Wash Cleanser for its frills-free formula that helps to eradicate excess oil and pore-clogging dirt without compromising your skin’s natural defences. This is a deep cleansing facial wash in powder form that effectively eliminates deep-seated dirt and impurities to give your skin a clearer complexion.

#2. Add an Acid

This may sound absolutely terrifying but it’s one of the best things you can do to keep skin luminous. Glycolic acid – most-commonly derived from sugar cane – dissolves the ‘glue’ that sticks dead cells and debris to skin’s surface. Recommend by beauty editor, Janice Lee, Pixi’s Glow Tonic is the ideal acidic toner; suitable for even sensitive visages, it leaves dulled complexions much more light-reflective, while gradually fading acne scars and working hard to keep breakouts at bay.

#3. Bright-eyed

Remember to use eye cream – they’re specially tailored to combat the first signs of ageing and fortify delicate skin. You don’t need anything particularly potent – just something nourishing and preferably elasticising – to keep the skin firm and delay the onset of crow’s feet.

A great habit and investment to start at a young age, try Chái Emerald Oil which refreshes dull, shabby panes instantly by reducing the appearance of dark circles and dehydration instantly with its powerful moisture-stabilising complex and soothing roller ball. Over time, it improves circulation and creates an enchanting light-infused brightness and smoothness from within for an ageless luminosity that lasts. Perfect For: Quenching and illuminating delicate lids of all skin types.

#4. Add Super Serums

Drench skin with powerful antioxidants in this potent, silky, lightweight treatment featuring the highest concentration of Nrf2 Antioxidant Support Complex™ to help protect against the natural oxidative stress caused by premature aging. Scientifically formulated to fight the first visible signs of aging—fine lines, uneven skin texture, visible pores, dryness, and dullness—Dr. Perricone’s patent-pending Nrf2 Antioxidant Support Complex helps improve skin’s natural surface barrier and preserve smooth, refined, hydrated, and youthful-looking skin. And it primes the complexion for skin care and makeup application.

Skin Perfecting

#5. ALWAYS wear sunscreen

Even when it’s grey/cloudy/snowing/indoors… sunscreen is the best thing you can do to maintain and protect skin’s integrity and health. Take cover like a pro to keep dreaded spots in the shadows and unveil your brilliant best. Sunscreen is non-negotiable – SW1 Umbrella does the job exceptionally with non-comedogenic, broad-spectrum protection that does not budge with sweat or sea. You’ll stay matte and radiant, looking the best in the beach.
