Your 20s are the best time to establish a beauty routine to adopt for the rest of your life. One of the main concerns during this period is acne. It occurs due to puberty causing your hormone levels to rise, leading to excess sebum production. The sebum mixed with grime and dead skin cells leading to bacteria feeding on the same. The inflammation causes the skin to rise, thus creating a pimple. The 20s are the best time to establish the CTM routine of cleansing, toning, and moisturising to keep acne at bay. We found the perfect products that are specially formulated to zap those zits.
Cleanse and Purify
If your skin continues to be oily post your teens, it’s probably producing more sebum than usual, leaving your skin looking greasy. Excess oil blocks pores, allows bacteria to grow and causes pimples. To help combat that, look for a gentle face wash that has acne-fighting ingredients. Dr Batra’s Tea Tree Oil Face Wash contains a natural ingredient that helps prevent zits with its anti-bacterial properties.
Choose an alcohol-free version, as alcohol tends to dry the skin out. You want to remove the oil without removing your skin’s natural moisture. Kaya’s toner contains botanical extracts of witch hazel, rose, and cucumber which helps control excess sebum and closes your pores.
If you regularly have to deal with pimples, chances are you are left with red spots and acne scars. Try an advance clearing treatment under your oil-free moisturiser to help fight this, Avene’s Triacneal contains glycolic acid an ingredient that helps exfoliate your skin gently.
Moisturise and Hydrate
Even if one has oily and acne-prone skin it doesn’t mean it should be dry or flaky. It usually happens that the t-zone is shiny while the forehead and chin are dry and dull looking. To avoid this, use a light hydrating fluid like Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Moisture with SPF 15 to protect your fragile skin from harmful UV rays. It contains no drying alcohol and has a sheer formula that keeps skin supple for up to 12 hours.
