Being young and beautiful is awesome, but we all know looks don’t last forever. It’s crucial to take good care of the great skin you have in your 20s so that it not only looks its best, but is healthy later on in life. Don’t take your youthful, radiant skin for granted — start taking proper care of it, so you can maintain that glow for years to come with these tips.

Sun Protection Is Key.

If you know the facts about some common skincare myths, then you know that daily sunscreen use is extremely important. It’s also the easiest thing to use in your regimen since so many day creams and moisturizers have broad spectrum protection. So the next time you’re purchasing a face cream, just grab the one with SPF 30 in it.

Keep Your Diet in Check.

There are some yummy foods that are not only good for your body, but great for your skin. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is obviously very important, so start getting into a good habit now. 

Look for Appropriate Skincare Products.

If you’re looking for anti-agers to use now, then you’re on the right track. It’s important, however, to look for age-appropriate products since those made for mature skin can have too many active ingredients for your own good. Look for salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids, which help with acne prevention and help keep skin glowy without being harsh.

Get Your Zs.

Everyone telling you that you’re “too young” to need a normal eight hours of sleep is wrong. While you definitely have more energy, it’s so easy to get caught up in a busy lifestyle, which leads to more than just dark circles under your eyes. We’re talking acne. Not getting enough sleep can cause adrenal glands to get over-productive during the day, causing more oil production, which leads to clogged pores — and alas, breakouts.
