Your face might be spotless now but what happens in the next 20-30 years? Yup, black don’t crack but you still have an obligation to your skin cuz it definitely won’t stay this way forever. With that being said, here are some important things you should be doing to your skin in your 20s for beautiful and glowing skin even when older.
At least once a week you need to exfoliate to remove dead cells from the skin. You can do physical exfoliation with products like sugar and honey scrubs, clay masks or even coffee and honey scrubs. There is also the option of Chemical exfoliation using products with ingredients like salicylic, alpha, and/or beta hydroxy acids glycolic and lactic acid helps brighten the complexion.
Use a product with hyaluronic acid to soothe tired eyes.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold water. It’s great hydration for the skin, so it’s definitely going to help with fine lines. So when your eyes are looking a little tired after a long night working (or partying), dab on eye cream with this powerful ingredient. You’ll be fine.
For some reason, in Ghana, when you wear sunglasses people tend to look at you weird… like you’ve overdressed or something but it’s actually a good practice especially when the sun shines so brightly like it’s in a competition with someone or something else. It protects your eye area from all angles of the sun.
Don’t pick on your acne
Treating acne is important, you don’t want to scar. Scarring is much more difficult to treat as opposed to acne. It’s easier to treat when it doesn’t scar, so you want to start clearing your acne earlier, don’t wait until it gets worse.
Attempt to get at least seven hours of sleep a night
Seven to eight hours a night will help you achieve clear skin—among other amazing benefits. If you don’t sleep, your cortisol levels can go up. And when your cortisol levels go up that promotes inflammation in your skin.
Don’t sleep in your makeup
We’re all guilty of sleeping in our makeup once in a while—hey, it happens—but it shouldn’t be a habit. Doing so can block pores, leaving oil trapped inside. This leads to bacteria buildup and, yes, breakouts. It can also stretch out pores which no one wants.
Eat for your skin too
Your diet greatly affects the appearance of your skin. So, packing your diet with foods high in omega-3 fatty acids (wild-caught salmon), vitamin E (seeds and nuts), and zinc (oysters) can help keep your face clear and glowing.
