How to Prevent Premature Aging in your 20s
Use SPF protection to prevent sun damage and photo aging! According to extensive research sun damage is responsible for 80-90 percent of skin aging.
Moisturizing is important as well. In your early twenties especially if you have oily/combination skin you might do without a moisturizer but towards your mid 20s it becomes simply essential! At this stage your skin will start to loose its ability to retain moisture as well as it did before. You can choose a light moisturizer with anti-oxidants to keep your skin hydrated and to fight free radicals.
Use a light moisturizer for under eye area. You need to pay special attention to this area at any age as the skin around the eye is thin and is usually the first to show signs of aging.
Prevent and fight break-outs
Do not continue on using your anti-acne products you discovered in your teen years into your twenties. They are too harsh for you now and will stress and overdry your skin. And of course keep your skin cleansed and pores unclogged with the right skin cleansing routine and products!
Tip: Make sure not to use skin care products developed for more mature age. Your skin tends to get used to certain ingredients, later on when you do need intensive care it might not be as responsive as you would wish.
