5 WAYS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN IN YOUR 20S
Updated: Feb 6
Goodmorning babes and officially is 2020 ! I hope this year brings all that your heart wants.
I remember when I was a little girl watching my mom apply her makeup and I did not care that much about taking care of my skin. When I was pregnant of Ale I started to care a little more and my face was so beautiful with each twist of cream and rub of retinol. and I did not use any makeup at all.. Now, I look at my skin in my 20-something ! and I never missed a day going through my skincare routine and it shows. lol it looks so youthful and adds to my natural beauty, and that’s not just because I'm Colombian.
I’ve seen first hand the benefits of showing your skin some love every day in your 20’s and 30’s. So I thought I’d do a little more research on what the experts suggest you do now to keep your skin looking youthful as the years go by. We may not be able to stop aging, but we can make sure we do it gracefully.
5 Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips to Do in Your 20s
ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS REMOVE YOUR MAKE-UP AND CLEANSE BEFORE BED!
I know, I know — you’ve heard this a thousand times. But it’s worth repeating because it’s so important. Your skin goes through a natural exfoliation process at night and sheds old skin cells. Makeup interferes with this, and it clogs your pores. Sooo no good!
2. START USING A RETINOL CREAM
Retinol is the #1 dermatologist suggested ingredient for a reason — it makes skin smoother, brighter, and firmer. Retinol has been so under the radar because it’s usually super expensive! But time to rejoice, this is no longer the case. Olay has just released its Retinol24 collection that’s affordable. The collection consists of a moisturizer, eye cream, and serum, all made up of a combination of B3 plus Olay’s Retinoid Complex, including two types of retinol.
I’ve been using the Olay Retinol24 moisturizer for four weeks now and have been loving the results. I’ve heard that retinol irritates the skin, and so I was nervous to test it out. I haven’t experienced any irritation at all! In fact, my skin feels smoother than it has in a while 🙌🏻 Plus, the Retinol24 products start to show results in just 24 hours!! That’s just 1 day until you can start seeing improvements in your skin.
3. EXFOLIATE 1-2 TIMES A WEEK
Exfoliating also helps with giving your skin that youthful glow. I suggest exfoliating at night, as it strips your face of the ickiness from the day to give it a clean slate to absorb the rest of the products in your skincare routine and their nutrients.
1-2 times a week should be plenty! If you over-exfoliate, you could be at risk of stripping your skin of its natural oils.
4. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE SUN
Sunscreen use should not be limited to the beach. In rain or shine, sun exposure puts you at risk for wrinkles, sun spots, and leathery-looking skin.
When I first think of sunscreen, I imagine the sticky white stuff my mom used to glob all over me and my brother on family vacations. Nowadays, many moisturizers have SPF in them! Look for products with at least SPF 15 to 30. Moisturize your face before your makeup every morning, and you’re good to go.
5. TAKE CARE OF THE AREAS THAT ARE USUALLY FORGOTTEN
The face is the most looked at part of a person, it’s no wonder we spend so much time and effort taking care of it. But, don’t neglect the other parts of the body — your neck, legs, eyes. Wrinkles and saggy skin in these areas are tell-tale signs of aging, too. Body moisturizers and under-eye creams firm up and brighten these typically overlooked spots.
You know I love a no makeup-makeup look that still feels elevated that is why I’m loving Estée Lauder’s new and one of my favorites of the moments line Double wear that has a 24 hour duration and leaves your skin with a beautiful glowing matte finish.
flawless and Natural !
Besides the prettiest packaging — the products are the perfect combination of subtle glam and everyday practical. I meannn…
