Preventative Skin Care for 20-Somethings

You may be just starting out on your adventure into adulthood, but it’s not too early to give your skin some TLC that will keep it youthful and radiant into the next decade and beyond. Skin care for 20-somethings is all about preventing damage that can lead to signs of aging later on. The staff at New Visage as tips for 20-somethings to help them get – and keep – that healthy glow.

Common Skin Conditions

Adults in their 20s face a variety of skin conditions. Treating these conditions effectively early on may help prevent further problems as you get older. Some of the conditions that are common in this age group include:

  • Acne – usually thought of as a teen affliction, many 20-somethings continue to battle with breakouts
  • Rosacea – this condition can strike at any age, causing redness and inflammation that can be physically painful as well as a cosmetic nuisance
  • Brown spots – often incorrectly referred to as “age” spots, these pigmentation marks are often a result of sun damage and can develop at any time
  • Dry skin – the adult years often bring changes to the skin, including the transformation of an oily complexion to a dry one

In addition, some 20-somethings may start to see the very early signs of aging, particularly by the end of the decade. Treating any of these issues now instead of later can make a big difference in how well your skin ages. At New Visage, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatments to effectively manage conditions like acne and rosacea, eliminate brown spots and vascular lesions and restore hydration to dull, dry skin.

The Sun Protection Factor

You are never too young (or too old!) for proper sun protection. Wear a sunscreen with an SPF 30 on a daily basis to prevent damage to the skin from UV rays. Look for a full spectrum formula that offer protection against both UVA and UVB rays, since both can lead to early signs of aging and an increased risk for skin cancer. Reapply your sunscreen every two hours if you are outdoors for an extended period of time.

Creating Good Habits

Now is the time to create a healthy skin care routine with your specific skin type in mind. It is highly possible your skin has changed somewhat since your teen years and you will likely need to switch up your skin care formulations to ensure your complexion is getting all the support and nutrients necessary to look its best. A consultation with a professional esthetician at New Visage may be helpful in determining what your skin type currently is and which products will offer you the best possible results.

Warding Off Wrinkles

You may not see many signs of aging at this age, but it is likely a few will crop up by the time your 30th birthday starts to loom. Prevent those fine lines and dull skin tone with regular treatments now that are designed to keep your skin in top form. Exfoliating treatments like chemical peels or laser facials can be just the ticket for removing dead, dry skin cells and stimulating the body’s own rejuvenation process. Light therapy can also be a good option for getting rid of pigmentation spots and giving skin a healthy glow.
