Twenty-something skin can sometimes be a challenge to treat.
As a young adult in your twenties, you are possibly already contemplating ways to prevent signs of aging. You are also likely faced with concerns surrounding oily areas, clogged pores, and periodic flares of acne and/or post-acne scarring. In today’s blog article I’ve put together 10 practical advice for treating your 20-something skin.
Here’s what you should know:
Perhaps the most common issue affecting young men and women in their 20’s is acne and/or acne scars. Oftentimes, having combination or oily skin doesn’t really help your case either. You’ve likely had to combat oiliness, enlarged or clogged pores in the T-zones area, plus a few random breakouts.
Women in their 20s are often affected by hormonal fluctuations, leading to premenstrual flares of breakouts and chin acne. Some women who never had blemish problems in their teenage years suddenly have acne conditions in their 20s. Birth control pills and pregnancy can also contribute to potential hormonal skin issues. I’m sure you’ve probably had your share of the stress-related breakout to deal with.
If you are acne-prone, make sure you have; reliable home-care treatment products that contain both Benzoyl Peroxide to battle acne bacteria, as well as, alpha and beta hydroxy acid gels to flush clogged follicles and serve as spot treatments for those random and unwanted blemishes.
