Your 20s can be pretty hectic – You have to pretend like you know what you want to do in life and try to be as “adult” as possible. And added to a long list of newly acquired responsibilities, your skin begins to change, and you’re faced with a range of different skincare issues and priorities: the products you used in your teens just won’t cut it. But because we know from personal experience just how much effort your 20s can be, we thought we’d at least simplify your skincare regime for you. So here are some tips related to skin, Hair, and Makeup that every Girl in her 20s must know.
Skin- Get a good basic moisturizer with ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Apply it to your face when your skin is still slightly damp. Start wearing an eye cream with SPF every single day. If you suffer from an uneven skin tone, try a product like Bio-Oil which has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone.
One-third of women in their 20s suffer from acne,” says Eric Schweiger, a New York dermatologist. To clear up the occasional breakout, doctors recommend salicylic acid products. Wear sunscreen, It’s “the most important thing” to delay aging.
Hair- Women in their 20s want long hair, but they often make the mistake of washing and drying it and then styling with an iron every day,” says Dan Sharp, T3’s lead stylist. This causes a ton of breakage. Try to avoid using hot blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons. They damage your hair. Also – for a more budget-friendly alternative to dry shampoos – use baby powder in your hair to help with oiliness.
Get your hair trimmed every alternate month and limit the use of heat on the hair. Your twenties are also a great time to try something completely drastic with your hair. Cutting your hair into a sleek bob is a great way to show your maturity especially if you’re finishing up your school years and entering the workforce full time.
Makeup- Keep your beauty routine simple. Even up your skin tone with a tinted moisturizer and then apply pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. Do not use heavily lining your eyes as it just makes you look old. Try making your eyes prominent with gold eye shadow and a couple of coats of black mascara. Apply nude lip gloss or light pink lipstick to your lips.
