CNN quoted Dr Ranella Hirsch, president-elect of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery, who said that at 20 it is not very likely that you need to include wrinkle creams, microdermabrasion or skin lightening as part of your routine care. Although you may not have many wrinkles or age spots in your 20s, you can take preventive measures to avoid these signs of premature aging. The way you care for your skin in your 20s can affect how it will look later. You should decide on a routine of care and stay with her daily to keep your skin looking fresh and clean.
Hydrates the skin. After washing it with a mild cleansing gel, apply an oil-free moisturizer to your face and neck daily.
Treat the outbreaks. After the morning and night cleaning, apply a topical treatment for acne if you have it. Commercial medicines typically contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Allows the topical solution to dry before applying any other cosmetic or skin care product. Treating active sprouts prevents future problems such as acne scars.
Uses sunscreen throughout the year. Protect your skin from harmful sun rays by applying a broad spectrum sunscreen to your face. It should contain SPF of 15 or higher. You can also wear hats and sunglasses to avoid exposure. Try to avoid being outdoors during the hours of noon, when the sun is stronger.
Apply a retinol-based product every night before bedtime. Dr. Ranella Hirsch recommended in an appearance on CNN to apply a pea-sized amount on all areas of the face including the eyes, to treat acne, prevent fine lines and improve collagen production. Retinol is included in several serums, lotions and creams.
Avoid smoking. It can thin the skin and also cause you to constantly repeat the same facial expressions. Eliminate the habit to prevent premature wrinkles.
