Using sensible skincare products in your 20s will continue to keep your skin fresh and youthful for years to come. While young skin repairs itself relatively easily, it’s important to choose the right products for your skin type. Here are some of our skincare and treatment recommendations for anyone in their 20s.
A blessing in a bottle, sunscreen protects the skin from UV rays, the number one cause of premature ageing. It defends against fine lines, sagging skin and pigmentation and is an essential in your skincare routine.
Whether you’re spending your day indoors at your desk or out and about, it’s recommended you use at least SPF30+ every day, reapplying every two hours or more depending on your activities.
Cleanser and moisturiser
Along with sunscreen, using a cleanser and moisturiser daily will keep your skin clean and hydrated.
Moisturisers come in different consistencies, dependant on your skin type. We recommend applying a moisturiser to not only the face, but neck and décolletage area, too.
Using a suitable serum – a highly concentrated product with active ingredients – is also key. They can work to hydrate, brighten, exfoliate, repair or renew, depending on your needs and the type of serum you use. They are some of the most effective skincare products and can even help transform the complexion in a matter of days.
While maintaining an at-home skincare regimen is highly beneficial, preventative skin treatments are a great way to step up your beauty game.
Commonly labelled a ‘miracle worker’, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates blood flow, increasing the nutrition delivered to skin cells. It also improves cell production, skin elasticity and texture. It’s the perfect ‘entry level’ treatment.
Peels are another great treatment to begin in your 20s. They’re optimised to combat specific skin issues and offer minimal recovery time. In general, peels lift dead skin cells and encourage the body’s natural mechanisms to regenerate new skin.
LED light therapy
Painless, efficient and effective are three words often used to describe LED light therapy, a non-invasive treatment where a panel of LED lights is positioned over the face to target deep into the skin cells.
Originally used to fast-track the recovery of post-surgery scars and to heal wounds, it effectively rejuvenates skin, decreases fine lines and works to minimise bacteria on the outer dermis. It can also maximise the benefits from other treatments.
With three different LED colours available – red, blue and yellow – this gentle treatment suits various skin concerns
