Best Beauty Tips for Skin Care in Your 20s

Prevention is key to keep skin looking radiant and wrinkle-free. Check out this skin care routine for 20-somethings to help you keep that youthful glow.

In your 20s, you may think your skin is invincible and forever young. Even though you may not see fine lines and wrinkles right now, visible signs of aging are inevitably on the horizon. Now is the time to take action to keep your skin looking radiant and wrinkle-free for years to come. It’s important to start thinking about prevention during this stage of life – especially in areas where the first signs of aging usually begin to appear, such as around the eyes. Check out this skin care routine for 20-somethings to help you keep that youthful glow!

Cleanse and tone. Keeping your face clean is the first step to establishing a great base. While you’re past the crazy hormones that came with your teen years, you still might see the occasional blemish. Wash your face morning and night with a gentle facial cleanser.. Follow with a toner for an even deeper clean that will help clear and close your pores.

Treat. The best way to maintain youthful skin longer is to start using a beauty essence now. An essence, like the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence , can help skin stay hydrated, while packing it with powerful anti-aging ingredients, like vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids. This “miracle water” moderates the skin’s renewal cycle, keeping it firm and radiant. Plus, with its anti-aging benefits, you’ll help prevent wrinkles down the line. Pat it onto a cleansed face twice a day for maximum results.

Target. For the occasional breakout, including whiteheads and blackheads, use a spot treatment at night on the affected areas (usually the nose or T-zone) to resolve the clogged pores and reduce spots by morning. Look for active ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which can help zap zits quickly.

Moisturize. Find a hydrating moisturizer you can use morning and night. Never skimp on application! Remember: More hydrated skin equals younger-looking skin. And, don’t forget to apply an SPF during the day to help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays that can accelerate visible signs of aging.

Eye care. If you’re often out late partying or staring at digital devices all day (or both!), your eye area is especially susceptible to signs of aging – think dark circles, wrinkles under eyes and fine lines. Tackle them early by adding an eye cream into your regimen. The SK-II R.N.A. POWER Eye Cream locks in hydration and leaves the eye area soft and smooth. Dot a pea-size amount under both eyes, spreading from inner to outer corner using your ring finger. Then, gently tap or press in a circular motion to stimulate blood flow and maximize absorption. The eye cream should be applied around the entire eye socket, but avoid the lid and lash line. Maintain your youthful skin now and in the future. You’ll be thankful you did when people are begging you to share your skin care secrets.
