Are you giving your skin a little love? If you’re a Millennial, we’re talking to you! So often when we think and hear about anti-aging skin care we think that those are tips and products that don’t need to be thought twice about until you’re older. But the truth is, there’s a lot of power in starting anti-aging skin care practices in your 20’s. Our skin stops developing collagen on its own around this time, making it the perfect time to step up your own skin care habits. Millennials need skin love too, and we’re sharing the anti-aging habits you should start getting into now.
Examine Your Skin Care Products
Most people start using a few key skin care products when they’re teens and pretty much stick with products similar or the same ones for quite a few years. If you haven’t adjusted or changed your skin care products in a few years, now’s the time to do so. Your skin has definitely changed since you were a teen and it has different needs. Make sure to really evaluate your skin’s type and do some research on products that are going to best suit your skin’s type. This will help make sure that you’re really keeping your skin healthy, and healthy skin is crucial to really focus on anti-aging products.
Don’t Skip SPF
We get it, when you’re young, you feel like your skin is untouchable–you won’t actually get wrinkles or sun spots, right? Well, unfortunately that’s just not the case. Now that you’re in your 20’s it’s time to get serious about your SPF routine. That means you need to stop leaving the house without applying SPF. Sun damage is the main factor that causes signs of aging to occur in the skin. Knowing that, give your skin some love and make sure it’s well protected from the sun.
Incorporate Eye Cream
Did you know that the area around your eyes is said to be the first spot to show signs of aging? Well, it is. Experts suggest that in your 20’s, now is the time to start using an eye cream in your daily skin care routine. Typically, you’ll want to make sure you’re looking for an eye cream that’s not too heavy-as those are really formulated for those that already have visible signs of aging. You only need something that’s lightweight, but adding an eye cream in now will help prevent signs of aging from popping up around the eye area and really keeping your skin well preserved.
Add a Serum
Another addition to make to your skin care routine? A serum. Serums are great to help with anti-aging benefits, especially when they’re loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. Similar to the eye creams, you don’t need a serum that’s really heavy. Instead focus on a lightweight serum that isn’t going to clog your pores, but will still allow you to reap the benefits from antioxidants and vitamins for your skin.
