It should come as no surprise that for most people, their 20’s are often the best years for their skin. This makes sense considering the 20’s is commonly the sweet spot after the acne and blemishes associated with our teenage years have faded, but before wrinkles and other visible signs of aging begin to emerge. Still, it’s never too early to start thinking about preserving the health and condition of your skin. By being proactive and caring for your skin during your 20’s, you can build a foundation for healthy skin that can last for years. To help you maintain radiant, young-looking skin through your 20’s and beyond, the skincare experts at AYA™ Medical Spa have some tips.
Find a Regimen That Works
Establishing the right skincare routine for you can take some time and experimenting, but in the long run you’ll be happy you did. Finding a regimen of skincare products and sticking to it can help ensure much healthier skin in the years ahead. So, choose a cleanser, moisturizer, and other products specifically for your skin type and needs and stay consistent.
Wear Sunscreen Daily
Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon at the beach or simply going through your daily routine, sunscreen is a necessity. The sun’s UV rays can affect your skin regardless of whether it’s a bright sunny day or cloudy and overcast. Skin damage is cumulative, so even if you don’t see any signs of it now, you may years down the road. This is why it’s important to protect yourself from sun damage by applying a broad spectrum sunscreen like Auspect™ Skincare Hydra Shield daily.
Make Time for Exfoliation
Exfoliation is crucial at this age. Especially for anyone with issues like acne and acne scarring that can sometimes persist into their 20’s. In addition to exfoliating skincare products, a chemical peel at AYA™ can help improve facial skin by removing damaged layers of dead skin cells.
Get Plenty of Nightly Sleep
Lastly, some simple lifestyle changes help make a big difference for anyone trying to maintain the quality of their skin. Sleep is critical to help your skin repair itself from the daily damage it incurs. We know sometimes school, work, or your social life can get in the way of getting the recommended eight hours of sleep. Just try not to make a habit of it.
