The early 20s
Your skin in your early twenties changes a lot just like it does in your teen years. It is important that you change and upgrade your routine a little bit. The skin in your early twenties is more susceptible to pigmentation.
It can also develop serious melasma if not taken care of properly. This is also the time many people start developing dark circles.
- Exfoliation: You should exfoliate your skin at least two times a week. Make sure you use only mild physical exfoliants and not chemicals.
- CTM: This is the correct age to start following the Cleanse- Tone- Moisturize routine. Make sure you use mild cleansers and toners as they can strip off the essential oils from your skin.
- Makeup removers: This is the age where the skin can break out only because of excess oil and bacteria on your skin. To avoid bacterial or fungal acne make sure you clean your face with good quality makeup remover before going to bed.
- Sunscreen: Perhaps the most important thing is to apply sunscreen or sunblock throughout the day as it will avoid melanin formation and also avoid early signs of aging.
The late 20s to 30s
The skin in your late 20s to 30s can experience a lot of positive changes. The oil regulation is good. The overall hormonal health and physical health is stabilized a lot compared to your teens. So in this period, your skin looks a lot radiant.
It is important that you make sure you maintain your skin and avoid any early signs of aging or avoid adult acne. There are many people who opt for skin rejuvenation treatments for their skin from dermatologists.
This is the right age to introduce your skin to these treatments. But remember not to overdo these treatments:
- Serum: You should introduce serum in your CTM routine. Any serum that has active ingredients like niacinamide, Vitamin C, etc depending upon your skin concern.
- Chemical Exfoliation: You should not use very harsh chemicals, but this is the age you should introduce chemical exfoliants like Glycolic acid, Salicylic Acid, etc. with very low concentrates.
- Facial Oils: Facial oils have a good concentration of essential oils like Jojoba oil, Rosehip oil, Primrose oil, etc. The introduction of facial oils into your routine will visibly reduce the signs of aging. They also tackle other skin concerns.
