1. Cleanser is a must but so is your scrub
While cleansers help remove dirt and oil from the skin (a fragrance free morning facewash with moisturizer is simply the best), nothing but a good scrub will do when it comes to exfoliation, a must if you have to get rid of dead skin cells that clog up your pores. Invest your time in scrubbing your face three times a week to keep your skin looking eternally fresh and acne free.
2. Skin Serum secret
Many of us don’t even know what a “skin serum” is or how important it is. Skin serums are oil or water-based products that are loaded with nutrients, ceramides, glycerin, natural ingredients (cucumber, aloe vera etc.) and vitamins like C, K, E that protect and brighten spots and acne scars. They penetrate deep into your skin to keep it healthy and glowing. So what are you waiting for? Add a good serum to your daily skin care routine right away.
3. Acid toning is crucial
There’s no running away from alcohol-based acne toners anymore, it’s time to own them because they do exactly what you need at this age; give you a gentle, mild exfoliation. Toners might leave you a little pink or red at first because of the high levels of AHA (Alpha hydroxy acid) content, however, this actually helps in drying up hormonal breakouts and and also assists in exfoliation. However, the results only get better. Start with using one a few times a month and once you’re comfortable, use it on a nightly basis to get the best results.
4. Add an anti-aging cream to your beauty regime as soon as you hit 25
Getting your “beauty sleep” is vital for your skin and so is a good anti-aging cream if you want to keep that twenties’ glow. A healthy dose of moisture every day will make your mornings more beautiful than they already are. As a one-stop solution for all your anti-ageing needs nothing works better than Olay regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Cream. Along with rehydrating your skin it boasts remarkable anti-aging properties and also contains SPF 30 that helps block direct DNA damaging rays while maintaining your skin’s integrity.
5. Start using Retinol
Retinol is one of the animal forms of vitamin A, which is the king of all antioxidants. Using products with retinoic acid is essential because it helps in the process where the skin repairs and replaces itself. However, since there’s a possibility of it causing irritation among those with a hypersensitive skin, it should be used a few times a week before going to sleep strictly followed by SPF the morning after.
6. Time to regularly use Eye Cream
Eye wrinkles are one of the earliest signs of ageing and the onset can sometimes be as early as late twenties. An eye cream with caffeine reduces morning puffiness and those with antioxidants and retinol slow down the aging process. Use one with a combination of all three for best results. If gentle enough your under-eye cream can be used both during the day and night, depending upon the concentration of the ingredients.
