It is never too early to start investing in your skincare. It may seem as though your life is just beginning however, nourishing products are a must to prevent premature ageing. As you move through your 20’s it’s important to re-evaluate the harsher products you may have warmed to during high school. Combining quality skincare products with a healthy lifestyle will help to maintain your natural, youthful glow. Despite, your ‘twenty something’ skincare regime being imperative, it doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. The following steps will suit even the busiest of lifestyles to promote refreshed, energised skin.
As simple as it sounds, do not sleep with makeup on. Sleeping gives your skin a chance to undo the free radical damage that takes place during the day. Cellular renewal is possible when your face is fresh and clear from dirt, makeup and excess sebum. Implementing a system like leaving face wipes on your dresser will ensure you never forget to remove the day. Having a good night's sleep also improves skin elasticity and tightness. The majority of cell regeneration takes place during the REM (rapid eye movement) cycle, which is why it so important to reduce the number of late nights. Young adults should aim to have at least 7-9 hours of shut eye a night. This will ensure your skin benefits in the long term.
Despite the importance of sleep, we all love quick skin fixes to make us look better than what we probably feel, whether we have spent the night working, studying or partying. Something we all dread in the morning is waking up to puffy eyes. Simple home remedies include holding chilled spoons on your under-eye area, soaking your eyelids with teabags for 10-15 minutes or placing cold slices of cucumber on eyes help to reduce inflammation. Implementing nourishing ingredients such as grape callus into your skincare regime will help reduce any inflammation and dark circles. Gently applying an eye serum such as RACINNE’s Ultimate Hydra Perfection Contour Brightening Eye Care will help firm under the eye area for a visibly brightened look. Gentle products with natural antioxidants and renewal properties help to reduce the signs of ageing. An eye cream or treatment should be a staple item in a skin care regime for anyone in their 20’s!
It is important to tailor your skincare routine depending on your skin type, which can be difficult in your 20’s as hormonal changes continue beyond high school. An efficient way to adapt to these changes is to incorporate a cleansing tool such as the RACINNE Lady I into your daily regime, which includes interchangeable heads for massaging, cleansing and exfoliating. In your 20’s, skincare is all about anti-ageing and enhancing your skin’s natural radiance. Using a sponge head for the application of moisturiser will help promote blood circulation for optimal absorption resulting in visibly softer, smoother and rejuvenated looking skin.
Your skin lasts a lifetime, meaning paying extra attention to it during your 20’s will pay off later on. As opposed to only starting to incorporate anti-ageing products as signs of ageing appear, you will thank your younger self for implementing preventative measures early on. It is also important to remember that lifestyle choices including tanning, smoking and poor eating habits, all tempting during your 20’s can increase the speed of the ageing cycle. Lifestyle choices and skincare consistency are integral to maintaining youthful radiance.
