Skincare Tips for Your 20s
During your teenage years, hormones run amok, making bothersome skin conditions very unpredictable.
However, as you reach your mid-20s, blemishes and breakouts should begin to disappear, and any overproduction of sebum or oil on the skin will hopefully balance out.
Signs of ageing are not yet apparent, so your skin will be radiant and blooming, but be aware – your 20s are when the most damage is done to the skin, but it won’t show up until your mid-30s, which is why it is so important to start looking after your skin today.
Implement a good skincare routine: Keep your skin healthy; start by introducing a simple cleanse, tone, and moisturisation regime twice daily.
Keep your skin hydrated: Fine lines, dry skin, and dark circles under the eyes signal dehydration, so it is essential to keep your skin hydrated. Quench Hydrating Water Gel will keep your skin moisturised.
Don’t go to bed with panda eyes: Remember to always remove your makeup at the end of the day, as this will help prevent the skin blockages that lead to pimples.
Treat your skin to a monthly steam: This is the perfect skin treat, which will help to flush out blocked pores that could contribute to unsightly breakouts.
Treat acne skin wisely: The key is not to over-dry the skin or expose the skin to drastic changes in pH. Use a gentle, foaming cleanser with a pH as close to 5.5 as possible – nothing too stripping. If you do have breakouts, consider using a spot treatment like RESQ Anti-blemish Complex, rather than an all-over spot treatment.
Be nurtured by nature: Use only natural, gentle products like the ones from our range. Avoid using cheap, astringent products loaded with alcohols that will strip the skin and upset the pH levels.
Avoid anti-ageing products at this age: Cosmeceuticals usually contain peptides and Vitamin C; ingredients that are designed to signal skin cells to build collagen so that skin appears more plumped up. The problem with delivering these ingredients to your skin in your 20s is that your skin already does this, so you’re wasting your money.
This article will give you more insights on how to treat skin in your 20s.
Any damage done in your 20s does not start showing up in your skin until your mid to late 30s – frightening, really.
Skin that is damaged is misleading, as signs don’t appear until your late 20s. Any damage done now is going to be difficult to reverse.
So, the biggest piece of advice I can give to someone this age is to wear sunscreen. I know you’ll be thanking me for many years to come.
