Forever Young: Skin Care Essentials in Your 20s

As we grow up, there are certain milestones that we have to wait for. Getting our drivers license, drinking alcohol, and renting a car all require an age restriction that many of us can’t wait to reach. However, there is one thing that doesn’t require you to be a certain age: skin care.

A common misconception is that you don’t have to worry about wrinkles until you have them, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The best way to rid of wrinkles is to prevent them, and that should start at an early age. Even at the beginning of your twenties, learning how to develop a skincare regimen is one of the best things you could do for yourself.

Knowing what products to use, when to use them, and how to use them are key. Just like there are no two people alike, your skin’s needs differ not only from person to person, but also from year to year, season to season. For example, your skin will need more hydration due to the harsh cold elements in the winter, whereas in summer skin tends to get oily from the hot and humid weather.

Our skin guru, Julie Cvijic, prescribes products based on your needs; therefore, we can’t tell you exactly which products to use. However, we can tell you which skin care essentials should be in your cupboard:

  1. Exfoliant
  2. Cleanser
  3. Sunblock
  4. Day Moisturizer
  5. Night Moisturizer
  6. Eye Cream

Without proper exfoliation, your cleanser, sunblock, and moisturizer cannot penetrate the skin, which is why it ranks #1 on our list. Other skin care essentials include serums, masques, and special treatments if you suffer from skin ailments like pigmentation or acne. However, it all depends on the needs and condition of your skin.

If you’ve ever met Julie, you’ll know that she’s much more than a clinical facialist; she’s a skincare coach. She’ll tell you exactly what your skin needs and use her 35 years of experience to fix and transform your complexion.

Remember, no machine can fix the skin without proper maintenance. So take of your skin. Your 50-year-old self will thank you.
