Welcome to your 20s! It’s now time to establish a good skin care regimen for beautiful skin that will last a lifetime. Your skin is healthy and young, so let’s keep it that way.
Like most parts of your body, your skin is constantly changing over the course of your life. During the teenage years, your skin can be oily and acne-prone, (well, thanks to all the puberty-induced hormones!), in which this stage can extend into your twenties. Your hormone levels actually peak in your third decade that leads to lower jawline acne. Dehydration also plays a role due to increased progesterone levels. Pollution, visible light and even irritants often result from the usage of multiple products we are ‘experimenting’ are some of the unwanted skin aging changes we are experiencing. Irritation, collagen breakdown and sun damage are also factors that are aging us faster and at younger ages which can lead to hyperpigmentation and scarring that often aggravate in your 30s and after as well, because of loss of elasticity and the acne marks can become more excessive.
To help ward off some of these effects on the skin, we’re giving you 7 habits in maintaining that youthful glow for longer. This is really the best time to do it. Trust us, your future self with thank you!
1. Get Into Good Habits Now
In your 20s, your skin is at its utmost visually. Right now is the right time to establish foundation in your skincare routine for your later years.
Start by always doing your best to commit on good habits. You can quite possibly get away with a very, very minimal skincare routine
A good quality of cleanser, a serum, (BHA or AHA if you’re acne-prone), and a great moisturizer (if you have dry skin) is probably all you need.
By now, you should know the importance of having a good skincare routine. Incorporating face serums in your daily routine will help you deal with certain skin issues throughout your 20’s. Some of the reasons that can cause loss of radiance in your skin can be acne in your early 20s, or because of dead skin cells accumulating on your skin in your late 20s. Whatever it is, 24K Pure Gold DeLuxe Serum can actually make a difference! A super vitamin C, E, A serum packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrient and gold particles. All working together so you can achieve a brighter, radiant, and luminous complexion while reducing the signs of aging.
2. Use The Correct Products For Your Skin Type
When you reach your 20s but you still don’t know your skin type, probably, now would be a good time to find out. Without the knowledge of your true skin needs in choosing the correct skincare products, it can be hard and can affect your skin in the long run. For example, other individuals with oily skin types can actually be very dehydrated, lacking moisture. So what they need to do is to make it their mission to figure out their skin type and invest in the products that best suit them.

3. Cleanse Thoroughly
Residues left on your skin if you don’t cleanse thoroughly enough as it can turn into build-ups and bacteria on the surface of the skin, dull, uneven skin tone and texture that may lead to blemishes. Don’t do half a job: Cleanse well to avoid having a poor skin.
Stay fresh-faced with 24K Pure Gold DeLuxe Cleanser which will leave your skin feeling fresh, bright and energized. It hydrates, soothes and intensely purifies your skin any time of the day. A facial cleanser that best suits your skin type that you’ll always want to choose!
And always remember the skin care’s golden rule – never, ever sleep with your makeup on!
4. Have An Efficient Hygiene Routine
Sharing makeup brushes, sharing towels with others, and not washing your hands properly can all be the reason for cross infection on your skin. Ensure you’ve got these hygiene basics down before complaining about breakouts and other skin issues later on.
5. Don’t Forget About Your Neck And Decollete
Your neck has delicate skin, so forgetting to take care of it is a big mistake, and we’re all guilty of it. Making a point to develop this habit in your 20s is a huge help in the long run. Be sure to include your neck in your overall skincare routine. Because it is as susceptible to the sun exposure damaging effects and insufficient cleansing and moisturizing your face.
When applying facial moisturizer after cleansing, don’t stop at your jawline—your neck needs moisturizer too! A little extra hydration on your neck and chest area can go a long way in creating a more youthful-looking, healthy glow. Look for a moisturizer that’s formulated for the skin on your neck and chest, such as the 24K Pure Gold DeLuxe Moisturizer packed with omega fatty acids that delivers lasting moisture while plant-based nutrients support clear, healthy-looking skin now and for years to come.
6. Get Your Beauty Sleep
Another good practice to begin in your 20s is getting enough sleep. It is obvious that the most important aspect of having a “beauty sleep” is getting six to eight hours consistently. Sleeping on your back rather than on your sides and stomach is better for your skin, but if you absolutely can’t stand it and need to sleep on your sides for health reasons, you can invest in a silk pillowcase to reduce skin irritation and fabric creasing.
7. Focus On Prevention
Your 20s are the perfect time to begin in focusing on finding protective skincare products and techniques. Simply because prevention is much easier than healing, right? Ensuring your complexion remains glowing and healthy for decades is to focus on the key ingredients of the products you are using and by incorporating good skin saving practices starting now.
In your 20s, particular skin concerns can make your skin look unhealthy which actually is more common in your late-20s. By using an antioxidant-rich face oil, you can boost your look and even add some glow. 24K Pure Gold DeLuxe Facial Oil is beneficial for all skin types at all ages. Made with superfood seed oils, essential fatty acids and 7 plant botanicals rich in Vitamins A, B, C and E, to help with certain skin issues like acne, dullness, and wrinkles. This one is perfect for improving moisture and repairing the skin barrier which makes it a great face oil for glowing skin in your 20s.
Your 20s are a time of self-discovery and developing exactly what you want and what are the things you want out of your life. And having great skin is what we’ve all wanted – follow our 7 habits to establish a good skincare routine and you’ll be well on your way to getting a healthy and glowing skin that doesn’t have to be overly complicated.
