Beauty in your twenties is all about taking care of your assets and experimenting with your personal style. So enjoy your late nights and early mornings, just make sure you are taking the necessary steps to maintain your youthful glow while having a beauty blast at the same time.
Every night before you go to bed gently wash your face and wipe away the dirt of the day. Not only will you give your skin a glow with improved circulation from the circular cleansing motions, your clean skin will have fewer breakouts. Even if you don’t wear makeup you still need to wash daily to rid your skin of all the daily pollutants it collects.
Remove Makeup Every Night
Never go to bed without removing your cosmetics with a gentle makeup remover and soft cotton pad. Old makeup clogs pores, traps dirt and leads to unhealthy looking skin with more regular breakouts. Sound fun? Didn’t think so. So no matter how tired you are, always remove your makeup. Always.
Practice Safe Sunning
Never leave home without protection “ sun protection that is (and maybe the other kind too!). At least fifteen minutes before your skin sees the sun use a moisturizer with an SPF minimum 30. You may not see the immediate benefits of your loyalty to sun protection, but by the time you hit your 30’s you’ll be thrilled you were careful “ your skin will look years younger than if you fried in the sun sans sunscreen.
Sunglasses are every girls best friend “ they hide your sleepy eyes and they stop you from squinting and developing crows feet. You can dress up any outfit with sunglasses, and also ensure that you age gracefully. So think of your sunglasses like your house keys and don’t leave home without them. Even in the winter, sunglasses are a beauty must.
Play with Makeup
In your 20’s you have an open licence to experiment with makeup colours, styles and trends. Always wanted to try out the cat eye look with metallic purple shadow? Play away! Find your personal style and enjoy learning great application techniques along the way.
Try Before You Buy
Most department and upscale drug stores will gladly give you product samples. So if you’re a girl with a tight budget don’t be shy to try out new products for free. Sometimes you will only get samples if you buy an item from the beauty counter, but most of the time if you explain that you want to try a sample prior to purchasing you’ll score a free trial.
