People always tell you how important it is to take care of your skin, but it isn’t until we reach our twenties that we really start to listen. While everyone agrees it’s in its “glory years,” if we don’t start caring for it now, it’s going to be downhill. many 20-somethings treat their skin as if it was invincible when the truth is far from it. Here are some tips that you should start following my friends.
When It Comes to Skincare, It’s Important to Start Young: You are never too young to start caring for your skin! If you keep it healthy with a good routine from a young age you will be ageless.
Do Not Sleep with Your Makeup On: Apparently Sleeping with makeup on decreases the body’s ability to repair itself.
Good Genes Can Help, But Environmental Factors are More Important: The way the skin ages depends a lot on genetics (thanks mom for your amazing skin), but environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure and smoking will damage it. a 20-year-old that’s tanning, drinking & smoking ages faster than a 30-year old that eats well, exercise & wears sunscreen.
It’s Highly Important to Wear SPF Every Single Day, Seriously! The sun you get from daily activities in our 20’s will affect the skin for years to come. It is very important to wear SPF daily because sun damage is cumulative. Nowadays many makeup brands have incorporated sunscreen in their products, so go to your store and check that out!
Morning and Bedtime Routine is Key: maintaining a simple, but effective morning and bedtime routine to ensure you’re doing everything you can to take care of your skin.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate: Exfoliating your face twice a week. This will help remove any dead skin cells and keep your face smooth and shiny.
Avoid Too Much Sun On Your Face, Even If You Applied That SPF: A tan may look good now, but the sun will rob you of youthful skin in the future. Avoid tanning salons they do dreadful things to your skin, apart from cancer & wrinkles. if you go out to run or to the beach don’t forget a hat, any cute fashionable hat works if it covers your face.
What You Eat and Drink Affects Your Skin: Skin and diet are linked, so the better you eat, the better your skin will look.
