Beauty Regime Every Girl in her 20’s Should Follow
When it comes to skincare, ‘better late than never’ is definitely not the way to go. Your 20s are the perfect time to start taking care of your skin to keep it young for a long time. Here are a few beauty regimes we absolutely swear by for 20-somethings.
Have a look:
Never sleep with makeup on:
Make sure to wash your face before going to bed. Sleeping with makeup on reduces the ability of the body to repair itself and expedites the ageing process. Makeup, along with dirt and skin oils doesn’t just lead to the formation of zits but also wrinkles and premature lines.
Begin the day with a gentle cleanser. The cleanser should not be abrasive and have moisturizing qualities in it for best results.
Develop the habit of not stepping out without applying sunscreen. It is important for your appearance and your health. A layer of sunscreen is indispensable for protecting the skin from harmful UV rays. Look for a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher.
Invest in a good face scrub. It is necessary to exfoliate the skin few times a week to remove the dead skin and leave you with healthy glowing skin.
Keep your eyes young:
Eyes and the area around them are the first to show signs of ageing. This skin is very thin and over exposure to sun can lead to premature wrinkles. It is therefore necessary to wear an eye cream with SPF every single day. An under eye cream with caffeine should be worn to keep morning puffiness in check.
Nothing works better than water! Drinking 4-5 litres of water a day helps the skin stay hydrated and increases the elasticity of your skin. It flushes out toxins, leaving you with soft, supple, healthy-looking skin.
Avoid binging on junk food to have the best skin in your twenties. Eating and drinking right are important for maintaining your skin health. Make sure your diet includes foods rich in skin-strengthening Omega-3 fatty acids, collagen-boosting vitamin C and antioxidant-rich vitamins A and E.
Let your skin breathe:
Try not to wear makeup all the time. Take a break from the busy pollution-free life whenever time permits. Use oxygen-based products as they are adept in dealing with bacteria and acne.
Smoking accelerates your skin’s aging process. It starves your skin of vital oxygen and other nutrients, like the immunity-boosting Vitamin A.
Happy faces are pretty faces. The one who is happy from within is always attractive to look at. Therefore, stay away from stress and try to be as happy as you can! Opt for pampering services that treat your skin and put you at ease.
