5 Basic Skin Care Tips for Women

For many people in their 20s, when it comes to health, beauty and just life in general, skin care is not their primary concern. With all the many changes that often occur during this period of our lives, from identifying life and career goals to surviving college and to truly entering the ‘real world’, the 20’s are a time of great upheaval for many people. What most people don’t realize, however, is that your 20s is also a critical time to create a skin care routine that will prevent wrinkles and set the tone for good skin throughout the rest of your life. Here are some simple tips on how to maintain a good skin.

1) Protect Your Skin From the Sun. The number one thing you can do to stay young and beautiful is to protect your skin from harmful sun rays. Not only does tanning (naturally or in sun beds) harm your skin and make you look older, it can also cause skin cancer. Wear an sunscreen with SPF 25 or higher on your face and body every day. 

2) Drink Plenty of Water. Dull looking skin can simply be the result of skimping on water intake. Many women don't realize that when you hydrate your body, you hydrate your skin too. Water helps plump up your cells to make them look younger and fresher, so be sure to drink up. 

3) Get Your Beauty Sleep.  It seems cliché, but nothing drags down your looks like a lack of sleep does. When you're tired, your skin shows it by looking dull, your eyes can get puffy and dark circles appear. Shoot for at least seven to eight hours of quality sleep every night if you want to look your best. 

4) Keep it Clean. Although washing your face at the end of the day may seem like a chore, your effort is well worth it in the long run. When you go to bed without washing, the dirt of the day mixes with your makeup and skin oils to clog pores and dull skin. 

5) Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize. Just like your body needs hydration from water, your skin needs moisture to keep it looking fresh and healthy. Apply a high quality moisturizer with an SPF of at least 25 every morning before you apply makeup. At night, wash your face and then apply a heavier night cream to maximize moisture absorption as you sleep.
