Find something that’s formulated for your specific skin type. Know what type of skin you have, is it dry, oily, prone to acne? By using products that help those issues your skin will have a better change in staying healthy. No matter what you’ve heard and no matter how tired you are you always have to wash off your makeup EVERY DAY. Before going to sleep at night, you need to cleanse, exfoliate and apply a serum with anti-ageing properties under your moisturiser.
But you do need to go easy on the anti-ageing products. Young women are generally very conscious about taking preventive measures to prevent wrinkles. Although that’s a wonderful thing, you can easily overdo it.
Several anti-ageing products have harmful active ingredients in them that increase the metabolism of the cells. Since skin in the 20s is already active, the stimulation of anti-ageing products in some cases can increase breakouts. Instead of loading up on products that are far too mature for your young skin, concentrate on protecting, washing, moisturising your skin.
Cleansing facials are a must and you should have them at least once a month if you can afford them! They’re perfect for young women in their 20s as they destroy bacteria and prevent ageing. Esteem Medi Spa is Queensland’s top destination for rejuvenation; providing chemical cleansing face peels that work by delivering exfoliation to the surface of the skin to improve the skin’s appearance.
Use eye cream
By using eye cream at a young age, you can help stop the formation of wrinkles in the eye area. If you are already starting to see fine lines around your eyes, you should use an eye cream to keep the area well protected.
The Food and Drink Plan
Eat foods rich in antioxidants. By decreasing cell damage, foods full of antioxidants help fight ageing plus they’re super high in fibre, low in saturated fat, and an excellent source of vitamins. Look for fruits, leafy green veggies, anything with Omega-3, seeds, buts, berries and avocados.
Drink plenty of water
We’ve been told to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, but it really isn’t a one-size-fits-all number. Water needs should be individualised according to your activity level, body weight, outside temperature and health status. One rule of thumb you can follow is 1oz per 30 kcal of calories consumed.
TOP WATER TIPS:
- As soon as you wake up drink a glass of water
- Make sure that you keep water next to your bed
- Put notes all over your house to remind you to drink water throughout the day
- Carry a water bottle with you
- Drink water before, during, and after exercise
Sun protection is without question the best way to prevent ageing for young skin. You should apply sunscreen 365 days a year, even if it isn’t sunny outside. If you have an oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin type and need to wear a sunscreen that dries, you should be using a sunscreen that has zinc oxide. If you have normal to dry skin you should use an all-mineral, chemical-free sunscreen.
