Skin Care in Your 20s
Now is the time to create healthy skin habits. Building a good foundation now will help stave off problems down the road.
Changes You May See
Skin in your twenties looks plump and firm, thanks to a robust subcutaneous layer. Skin cells are being created quickly, and sebaceous glands are still working at their optimum, giving 20-year-old skin a dewy glow.
You may not be in your teens anymore but your skin may still be acting like it is. It’s normal for super oily skin, blackheads, and pimples to be active at this stage.
Key Ingredients This Decade: Anti-Oxidants and Amino Acids
Your skin will benefit from gentle exfoliation (the key word here is gentle!). If you’ve spent high school scrubbing away at your skin with super gritty scrubs, now is the time for a less harsh scrub or an enzyme peel that will help smooth, soften, and brighten your complexion. A facial mask that contains superfoods used a few times per week, is a nice treat for your skin.
Product to Add to Your Routine: Sunscreen
Want to know the number one skin care product you could ever use? Sunscreen. It isn’t chic or exotic but sunscreen is the one product you should never be without. Choose a broad-spectrum product with SPF 30 or more.
Don’t reserve your SPF for days at the beach. Slather it on every day, over all exposed areas of skin. Doing this now will save your skin down the road. You’ll reduce premature ageing, dark spots, and uneven skin tone, as well as your risk of developing skin cancer. It’s the most important thing you can do for healthy skin.
Tips for Your 20s
- Don’t tan. Ultraviolet light from the sun—and from tanning booths—can prematurely age your skin and put you at higher risk of skin cancer. There is no such thing as a safe tan. Really like that sun-kissed bronzed look? Sunless tanners are the best way to go.
- Always cleanse your face before going to bed. Makeup, sweat, and oil can clog your pores or just leave your skin looking not so bright. Never go to bed without cleansing.
