Skincare for Your 20s to Keep The Healthy and Glowing Skin
1. Get a Minimum of 7 Hours of Sleep
The first idea that we will give to you is the idea that you will love which is sleeping! Yes, being mature will make you have a sleepless time that can give a bad effect on your skin. If you don’t have enough sleep, your skin will look dull, and gets acne, so we recommend you to get sleep at least 7 hours. No matter how busy you are, you should spend time for sleep!
Besides it is good for your skin, it is also good for your body’s health. Like increasing your focus, avoiding mood swings, improving memory, maintaining your heart health, and many more. So, having enough sleep is very important, right?
2. Do Double Cleansing is a Must
Next is doing double cleansing! Do you know how important it is to do this technique? Cleansing your face with a makeup remover first, then washing your face with a facial wash can help you to gain clear skin. With your clear skin, you can make your skincare product absorb and works well on your skin. Then, you will achieve healthy and glowing skin in your 20s.
Feeling confused about this statement? Okay, let us clear it for you. If you think doing double cleansing for people who often use makeup, you are wrong. Even if you don’t wear makeup, you still need to do this technique to make sure your pores are cleansed from dust and pollution. Choosing a product for your double cleansing also determines the result.
How to choose a makeup remover? Alright, for those who have oily skin, we recommend you try micellar water for the makeup remover. Meanwhile, if your skin is dry or sensitive, I think cleansing oil or cleansing balm will be the right choice for you because it won’t make your skin drier or even irritated. Then if you want to go to travel or a compact product, you can use a wet tissue remover that is suitable for all skin types.
3. Don’t Pop Every Pimple and Use Spot Treatment
Turning 20s doesn’t mean the acne won’t come into your skin. If you can’t take care of your skin well, it will be very easy to get acne. But you don’t have to feel stressed about it or even pop the pimple! This is totally wrong because it can make your skin get inflammation and the acne will be so much worst. You don’t want this to happen, right?
The first thing that you should do is relax your mind and don’t ever think to pop it. Furthermore, you can continue to find the right spot treatment. You can choose a product that has a Salicylic Acid or Tea Tree which can kill the bacteria. Use it twice a day, in the morning and at night before you sleep to get the maximal result.
4. Exfoliate Your Skin Once a Week
Just doing double cleansing is not enough to make your skin pores clean. You need extra effort if you want to achieve healthy and glowing skin. And one of the efforts that you can do is do exfoliating once a week. Why only once a week? It is because when you do exfoliate, your skin will be thinner, so if you do this many times, your skin will get irritation.
I know people who have sensitive skin will be afraid doing exfoliate because they think it would make their skin irritated. But you don’t have to worry because exfoliate products are divided into physical exfoliates and chemical exfoliates. So, do you feel confused about which kind of exfoliate that suitable for your skin? Here’s the explanation.
First, physical exfoliate in the form of scrub. This kind of exfoliate that suitable for people who have oily and normal skin. Furthermore, chemical exfoliates are usually in the form of liquid like toner or serum. When you use it, you don’t have to rub your skin, and the texture is very gentle. So, if you have dry, sensitive, or acne skin, you can prefer this one.

If you feel confused about this statement, we can make it clear so you will understand. The human body consists of 60-70% of water, so it means ¾ of your body is water. When you do an activity, the water in your body will be decreased and if you don’t bring it back, your body will get negative effects.
Water also has the function to detox the toxin in your body, therefore, it can be very helpful for you who have acne-prone skin or any skin problems. Furthermore, drinking water can make your skin moist so it can avoid premature aging.
