Daily Skin Care – Well, first things first. Before anything you do, check out what your skin type is. And then according to it, select a proper skin care regime. A regime consists of the items you apply or use on your skin on a daily basis. I recommend a good and reliable cleanser, toner and moisturizer. There are many options for you to choose from. Just remember that a high price doesn’t always guarantee a better product and vice versa.

Sun Safety- The sun does more harm to your skin than you can imagine. To keep away from the harmful effects of the sun and tanning, UV rays cause 90% of premature aging, so start healthy sun habits you will surely get the reward when you’re in your 30’s.

Quit Smoking- Smoking is the worst thing you can possibly do to make your skin go worse. It robs your skin of vital moisture and nutrients, adding years to the look and feel of your skin.

Moisturizer-Most of us start to lose moisture in our skin in our 20s, so it’s important to start trying to find a moisturizer that works for you. If possible, find one with a built-in SPF protection, to take care of that each morning. Keep trying moisturizers until you find one you love.

Water should be your best friend now- Since your skin may start losing moisture now that you’re in your 20s, it’s important to stay hydrated. Drink lots of water throughout the day; just keep in mind that the amount should be close to required. Drinking water in very large amounts is bad as it leads to bloating.

Sleep Well- Yes, I agree that you love partying. But your skin loves the essential 8 hours of beauty sleep too. A good sleep in your 20s will ensure flawless skin in your 30s.

Look out for any changes or strange behavior of your skin- Even small changes in your skin can prove to be fatal. So its better to be alert and aware. There have been many cases in which the changes in the skin were not treated and it lead to dangerous ailments like skin cancer. So be alert.

I know, that seems easy but is difficult to continue taking your current lifestyle into consideration. Here are some more tips, which are comparatively easy to follow-

1. Start your day with a gentle cleanser. Cleansers should remove dirt and oil on the skin, but shouldn’t be too harsh.

2. Invest in a good eye cream, as your eyes will tend to show the first signs of aging. Use a good eye cream with caffeine to reduce morning puffiness. Also look for ingredients like retinol and antioxidants in order to slow down the aging process.

3. Research has showed that wearing a daily sunscreen on the face reduced one’s risk of developing the deficiency of melanin by 50%. Look for those that offer a SPF 30 or a higher one that blocks both the types of harmful rays, i.e. UVA and UVB rays.

4. At night, remove all of your makeup, every night, without leaving any exception. Your Makeup can clog pores and lead to acne, unwanted breakouts and even high pigmentation.

5. Cleanse again at night with pure milk or a gentle cleanser. Do not forget to apply toner or moisturizer after removing your makeup in any case. Your skin does most of its reviving and self-cleaning work at night, so it’s really important to make sure its thoroughly dirt free.

6. If you’re still experiencing breakouts, spot treat pimples with creams or gel that contain salicylic acid.

7. Exfoliate a few times a week; not less not more. Less leads to accumulation of dust and more leads to over drying of your skin.

A dermatologist is always a good place to go to if you have serious skin concerns. He/she will take a good look at your skin and give you personal suggestions as well as recommend some good products to you.

So, follow these steps and enjoy a spot-free skin!
