Knowing how to care for your skin in your 20s looks very different for what you need in your teens or later in life. There’s a specific set of challenges, usually triggered by poor diet and lifestyle choices. You party too much, sleep too little and probably don’t drink enough water. Tut tut.
We asked Karen Varker, Skin Expert for NeoStrata for her top three tips if you are looking to kick-start your skin care regime with our how to care for your skin in your 20s guide. Now can be a great time to begin caring for your skin in a way that your 50-year-self will thank you for. Then there’s a give-away. Woohoo.
The fundamental rule of how to care for your skin in your 20s is to keep your skin clean. A simple, twice daily cleanser which gently exfoliates as well as hydrating is a must from a young age. The NeoStrata Facial Cleanser is a great choice as it uses patented polyhydroxy acids to unglue dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. These poly hydroxy acids also act as a humectant to bind moisture to the skin keeping it hydrated and avoiding that tight, stripped feeling that is common after cleansing.
Young skin is often more acne prone and produces more oil than mature skin due to hormonal changes. Products that are targeted at acne treatment often strip all oil from the skin’s surface, which in turn will cause an overproduction of oil doing more harm than good. Look for a product that’s main purpose is to normalise the skin, it will gently remove excess oils whilst leaving the necessary oils in the skin.
It sounds like a no-brainer, but it is important to remove all traces of makeup before bed to achieve a clear, glowing complexion. Makeup traps free radicals, dirt and oils onto the skin and prevents oxygen reaching the cells, over time this will cause deeper lines and wrinkles, acne, clogged pores and a dull complexion. A simple cleanse and moisturise regime before going to sleep is perfect for young skin to keep it in top condition.
Medical dermatology brand NeoStrata, who are the original inventors of Alpha and poly hydroxy acids, have given us a Restore pack to give away! Valued at $135.85! Whoa.
