The perfect skincare routine at your 20s
Over the years, our body undergoes global changes that affect our body as a whole and the skin is not exempt from it. In our twenties is when the skin begins to undergo changes and age and establishing a good and effective facial care routine during this decade is vital.
In our teenage years, skin can be oilier and tend to produce acne from hormones produced with puberty. Furthermore, cellular turnover decreases by more than 25%, and collagen production starts to decline as well, provoking the appearance of our first fine lines and a duller complexion. Sun damage also plays a role in premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots.
So, whether you want to ensure wrinkle-free skin is in the future or want to maintain its long-term health, implementing these tips into your skincare regimen now is crucial. As dermo-cosmetic experts, we will give you our tips and recommended products on the best skincare routine for your 20s! Because when treating your skin, the sooner the better.
- Wash and cleanse your face twice a day
It is important to thoroughly cleanse your face twice a day, not just use makeup remover wipes! Although many young women only wash their faces thoroughly at the end of the day, we highly recommend doing it in the morning as well. During the night, many dead cells accumulate on the face, which acts as a layer of dust, aging the skin. To do this, we recommend the use of md:ulstrasense cleanser, a moisturizing, antioxidant, and regenerating milky facial cleanser.
- Moisturize your skin
Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, even if you do not tend to have dry skin. You should be moisturizing twice daily, right after every cleanse! Hydrated skin improves the skin barrier to prevent inflammation, irritation, and dryness. For this step, we could recommend the daily use of X:treme Skin Renewal. Formulated with Vegetable Stem Cells and Epidermal Growth Factors, this cream activates the mechanism of cell self-repair, protecting cells´ life and repairing the skin from inside.
- Add some Vitamin C to the mix
A serum or treatment with vitamin C and other antioxidant ingredients is crucial for your morning skin routine. Vitamin C helps fight free radicals from all environmental aggressors, like pollution or sun damage. To avoid it, add a layer of md:cocktail SkinBooster Anti-Pollution Defence before applying your sunscreen. With other acids and active principles, it will give you a brighter, tighter, and healthier skin as well.
- Wear sunscreen every day
All year round -even cloudy days! – prolonged ultraviolet exposure may lead to premature skin ageing, which is the major culprit in the appearance of wrinkles, dryness, and age spots. If it is not already, sunscreen should be a critical component of your daily routine. Apply sunscreen SPF50 at least 20 minutes before you go outside and remember to reapply regularly. 3D Moisturizing Sunscreen Protection SPF50 gives a complete sunscreen effect, fighting against harmful radiation for all skin types. It helps prevent photo-ageing, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and sunburn.
- Exfoliate your skin weekly
Once or twice a week at most, gently exfoliate your skin with a solution which contains Glycolic acid. But be careful to not over-exfoliate: we do not want your skin to lead to redness or inflammation!
