Your 20s are the most carefree, blissful time as far as skin care is concerned. The days of teen acne are finally behind you and ageing concerns like wrinkles, smile lines, crow’s feet or pigmentation are way off your radar. While signs of skin ageing may still not be visible, factors such as exposure to sunlight, pollution, and stresses of modern lifestyle can trigger premature ageing signs which can appear as early as your 30s. Your future self will be forever grateful for your decision to add these anti-ageing products to your skin care regimen in the 20s:
Sunscreen, Sunscreen & More Sunscreen!
Exposure to sun rays is the number one culprit for skin ageing. Naturally then, religiously using sunscreen is the top preventive measure you can take in your 20s to delay the onset of skin ageing. You must wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or more every single day, including days with overcast skies, rainfall or ones where you don’t intend to step out of the house at all. If you have oily skin, you can try a matte-finish sunscreen like Organic Harvest Sunscreen For Oily Skin SPF30. For those who have a sensitive skin type, you may opt for mineral-based options like Organic Harvest Triple Action Formula Sunscreen. If you prefer skin care products with natural ingredients, a sunscreen like the Biotique Bio Sandalwood Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF50+ would work well.
Irrespective of your skin type, you need to invest in a moisturising regime in your 20s. Keeping the skin duly hydrated through the day and at night can go a long way in keeping it plump, glowy and naturally young. It is, of course, important to choose the moisturising formula wisely. Those with dry skin type can use a hydrating formulation like Swiss Image Absolute Hydration Day Cream while a light formula like Biotique Morning Nectar Skin Moisturiser works well for oily skin. If you have normal skin, Seesee Dead Sea Mineral Day Moisturiser For All Skin Types is a good pick. For those with extremely sensitive skin, using a good eye cream as a face moisturiser can work wonders to sustain youthful skin.
Exfoliating the skin regularly plays an important role in encouraging cell turnover. However, chemical exfoliants with AHAs and BHAs have proven to be more effective in unclogging pores and enhancing cell rejuvenation than their physical counterparts like harsh scrubs. LOTUS YOUTHRx Active Anti Ageing Exfoliator, Kaya White Resilience Creamy Exfoliating Rinse and Beauty Formulas Tea Tree Exfoliating Face Wash are some of the products we recommend.
Use A Retinol
Skin care products with retin as a base works like a charm for ageing skin. Of these, creams with retinol are milder in their composition, effective in results and readily available. You just cannot go wrong with a trusted retinol-based formulation like L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Day Cream for delaying the onset of skin ageing.
In addition to these skin care products, it is also important to adopt the right lifestyle. Stay active, focus on nutrition and get adequate sleep and hydration to keep your skin supple and soft like a baby.
