The Skin Care Products You Need in Your 20s

Some people are already concerned about how to prevent wrinkles in their 20s. But, the priority should be taking care of yourself mentally and physically, finding the skin care that actually works with YOUR unique skin type, and wearing SPF every single day. (Yes, even in winter and when you are WFH.) That’s your real anti-aging skin care routine for your 20s. 

Curious about what routine works with your skin type?

For Oily or Acne-Prone Skin

Finding a skin care routine for your 20s can be tough if you’re still dealing with acne. Look for skin care that says “non-comedogenic,” which means it won’t clog your pores, and always have a spot stick on standby.

Wash your skin with a gel cleanser and reach for lotions with SPF, which are lighter on your skin, instead of creams. Keep a mattifying balm in your bag to knock out any breakthrough oil during the day. 

For Dry or Dehydrated Skin

Your skin is tight, sometimes uncomfortable and flakes can be an issue. Sounds like you? First, Learn the difference between dry and dehydrated skin.

Then, start with a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your natural oils, followed by a non-drying toner to balance, and lock it in with a moisturizer and your SPF.

At night, switch to a richer night cream with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and squalane for an extra dose of moisture.

For Skin Somewhere In-Between

Oily in places, dry in others, or just evenly balanced? You can follow either skin care routine depending on how your skin is feeling that day. Stick with the basics: a skin-friendly cleanser, a gel moisturizer, and SPF.

For Sensitive Skin

Less is more for you. If your skin is super sensitive, you may have an imbalanced skin microbiome. Read more about your microbiome.

You’ll want a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer-and-SPF combo to reduce the amount of products you’re putting on your skin. At night, you just need a simple moisturizer to keep your skin barrier healthy.
