1. It is best to start young when it comes to skincare.
It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin. If you keep it healthy with a solid care routine as early as possible, you will certainly be ageless.
2. Never sleep with your makeup on.
Aside from the gunk and oil that have built up on your skin during the day, sleeping with makeup on also reduces your skin’s ability to repair itself overnight. So, as early as now, you should make it a habit to take all your makeup off and keep your skin clean right before bed.
3. Good genes are not enough.
A lot of people are born with good and young-looking skin, but a lot of them have also not taken care of their skin which is why it was all useless eventually. Environmental factors such as diet, excessive sun exposure and smoking can greatly affect the condition of your skin. Reckless habits can make your skin age faster.
4. SPF is extremely important.
It is important to wear sunscreen on a daily basis because sun damage can accummulate. If you forget to wear sunscreen today, it doesn’t mean you can reapair it by wearing sunscreen tomorrow. When you get excessive sun exposure in your 20s, it can affect your skin for decades.
5. Go for a three-step morning and bedtime routine.
A simple but effective morning and bedtime routine ensures that you are taking of your skin properly. Step one is to use a mild but efficient cleanser. Step 2 is to treat the minor problems with antioxidants, retinols, or peelin ingredients. Step 3 is to protect the barrier by moisturizing the skin both in the morning and at night.
6. Stay away from the sun, even if you already applied SPF.
The number one rule when it comes to skincare is to avoid too much sun on your face. Caucasian women under 35 are more at risk of skin cancer when they go tanning under the sun. Sun exposure also causes your skin to age faster and for wrinkles to appear earlier.
7. Eat well.
What you eat and drink can affect the condition of the skin. So make sure to eat a lot of greens and foods that are packed with antioxidants and other essential nutrients. Also remember to keep yourself hydrated by drinking at leat eight glasses per day.
Make sure to exfoliate twic a week. This helps remove any dead skin cells and keep your face smooth and radiant.
