When it comes to developing positive skincare habits, your twenties are the perfect time to begin a regular regime that focuses on protecting and maintaining a healthy skin barrier. This will keep skin radiant, and help to prevent any visible changes, including uneven texture and tone, that may occur due to environmentally induced ageing.
What happens to skin in your twenties?
During your twenties, your skin is still regenerating efficiently. Collagen and elastin, proteins that provide your skin with support and resilience, and cell turnover is adequate, keeping the skin smooth, plump, and glowing. By your mid-late twenties, however, skin cell turnover starts to slow down and can sometimes leave skin looking dull, contribute to congestion, and the first signs of extrinsic ageing such as fine lines may begin to appear.
Protection is key
In your twenties, it’s time to focus on prevention. These are the years that will determine how your skin looks moving into your thirties and forties, and so preventing any damage in your twenties will serve you will in the long-term. Sun protection is a game changer and is clinically proven to prevent up to 80% of preventable ageing of the skin. Daily application of Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+ is your non-negotiable insurance against oxidative stress, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture and recommended for all skin types.

During your twenties, a gentle exfoliating essence such as Generation Glow is a great place to start for normal to dry skins, or if you’re finding your skin more on the oiler, side have a look at Clear Skin Tonic to keep it clear and happy.
