Looking after your skin in your Twenties

Unlocking the Secrets of Radiant Skin: Skincare in Your Twenties

In your twenties, life is an exciting journey filled with countless opportunities, personal growth, and self-discovery. Amidst the hustle and bustle, it’s crucial to prioritize self-care, and one aspect that deserves special attention is skincare. Your skin in your twenties is still youthful and resilient, but it’s also a time when habits formed can greatly impact your skin’s future health and appearance.

Here are some tips and insights into developing a skincare routine that will keep your skin radiant and healthy throughout your twenties.

1. Understanding Your Skin: 

The first step in any successful skincare routine is understanding your unique skin type and its needs. While some individuals have oily skin, others might have dry, combination, or sensitive skin. Identifying your skin type will help you select the right products and tailor your routine accordingly.

We have loads of information on skin types and concerns on our website.

2. Cleansing is key:

Regardless of your skin type, cleansing is a fundamental step in any skincare regimen. Regularly washing your face helps remove dirt, excess oil, and impurities that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Opt for a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Remember to cleanse your face twice daily, in the morning and before bedtime, to keep it fresh and clean.

Our top 3 cleansers to use in your twenties:

Infused with brightening magnolia extract and
anti-oxidant rich peony extract, Velvet Cloud Cleanser
gently dissolves everyday impurities and traces of
makeup with the sulfate free, light as cloud foam. This nourishing foam keeps skin balanced and bright without stripping skin of essential moisture.

Ideal for problem skin, this cleanser deeply cleanses to unclog pores while reducing excess oil and the appearance of spots, redness and pores. 

It’s Dermatologically approved for use by sensitive, oily and spot prone skin. Free from SLSs, lanolin, silicones, mineral oils, parabens and other nasties.

We love multifunctional products and Pixi doesn’t disappoint with this double cleanser – 2 formulas in 1 jar. One side contains a solid cleansing oil and the other a cleansing cream. Use at night as part of your daily routine.

3. Sun Protection:
In your twenties, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is vital to prevent premature aging and reduce the risk of skin cancer. Make sunscreen a non-negotiable part of your daily routine, even on cloudy days. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially when spending time outdoors.

4. Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise:
Hydrated skin is happy skin. Regardless of your skin type, incorporating a good moisturiser is essential to maintain your skin’s moisture barrier. Opt for a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser if you have oily skin, while those with dry skin should choose a richer, hydrating formula. Moisturising your skin regularly will help it stay plump, soft, and supple.

For Oily skin, we love Erborian’s Bamboo Matte Lotion. It will leave normal to oily skin looking perfectly mattified with a velvety finish.

If you have dry skin, try Skin Proud’s Sorbet Burst. Bursting with a powerful 4-part hyaluronic acid complex for results on all levels, this sorbet-like gel delivers goodness on an XXL scale. Ultra-hydrating and lightweight, use this oil-free gel to lock-in moisture for dewy, healthy and glowing skin.

Try Apivita’s range of express scrubs and exfoliators. We love their Olive Express beauty Face scrub. It offers deep exfoliation and cleansing to oily & combination skin types.

We also love Uriage’s Gentle Jelly Face Scrub which will renew your skin and lend the complexion a brighter, fresher, and also smoother appearance. 

Apply to face one to two times a week and gently massage in, avoiding the eye contour. Rinse thoroughly with water.

If you’re looking for a gentle exfoliating toner for everyday use, try Skin Proud’s Fruit Smoothie. It uses a delicate mix of natural AHA and PHA acids from lemons, blueberries, and grapefruits to remove dead skin cells whilst keeping skin hydrated.

7. Say No to Harmful Habits:
Avoiding harmful habits can significantly impact your skin’s health. Say no to smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as they can lead to premature aging, dull skin, and inflammation. Additionally, remember to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

Embrace the joy of self-care and witness your skin glow with vitality as you navigate this exciting phase of life.
