It should be no surprise that holding on to that youthful, healthy glowing skin starts with embracing good habits and filling your bathroom with the right natural skin care products. You're probably thinking - I don't have time or the money for a 10-step skincare routine. Guess what? In your 20's you actually need a lot less than you think. Read on to learn how easy it is to create 10 healthy natural skin care habits in your 20s:
1. Ditch the makeup wipes for a natural face wash
We shed 50 million skin cells a day so it's vital that you use a good face wash. If you think makeup wipes are just as effective, they are not. Wiping is not the same as washing. Choose a gentle yet effective cleanser like Pure Fiji's Purifying Cleanser. Make sure when you're choosing a cleanser, you turn over the bottle to look at the ingredients. Some products have the same bubbly sulfates as dish soap, which can strip the skin. Fortunately, Pure Fiji's line of natural skin care products is absolutely free of sulphates.
2. Get in the habit of wearing sunscreen every day - seriously
Yes, we're beginning to sound like a broken record with the whole SPF thing. But for good reason; almost 90% of the signs of aging come from unprotected UV exposure. Spending time in the sun with zero protection also increases your risk for skin cancer. So, it's vital to find a product that fits into your skin care routine.
The challenge for some people is finding a sunscreen that doesn't clog the pores so you may want to try a mineral powder.
3. Apply an antioxidant serum every evening
Like all antioxidants, vitamin C can help fight free radicals from all environmental aggressors, like pollution and sun damage. Try applying a serum with vitamin C like Pure Fiji's Hydrating Multi Active Serum. It's not just high in vitamin C but also high in vitamins; A, B, E, and Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9.
4. Invest in Ngi grass
Ngi grass which is grows in Fiji boosts hydration by increasing cellular water flow as well as moisture holding power for 24 hours. Skin appearance is strictly related to water retention. As time goes by, skin becomes thinner, the face starts to crease and look aged, because it retains less water plus its collagen and elastin content decreases. With continuous water replenishment throughout the day, skin is smooth, healthy-looking, and ""moisture-even"".
5. Resist the temptation to pop every pimple
That whitehead is staring at you and you just can't resist the temptation of squeezing it! Don't give in! It's not worth the potential for permanent scarring. In your 20s, what used to fade down, like freckles or discoloration no longer does. Squeezing pimples could lead to long-lasting dark spots especially those with dark skin. Instead apply Pure Fiji's Dilo Oil designed to reduce inflammation plus repair and minimize; pain, redness and acne scars.
6. Get a minimum of seven hours of sleep a night
Beauty sleep is something we could all use more of. And that's because a good night's sleep will help you achieve; healthy, clear skin along with other amazing benefits. A lack of sleep can cause your cortisol levels can go up. When that happens it promotes inflammation in your skin. That's why you need those seven precious hours of sleep.
7. Eat for gorgeous skin
What you eat will directly affect the appearance of your skin. If you want gorgeous skin in your 20s and beyond start adding these foods in your meal planning; omega-3 fatty acids (wild-caught salmon), vitamin E (seeds and nuts), and zinc (oysters).
8. Hands and neck deserve TLC too
Don't just think of your face. Make sure to apply all your; serums, creams, masks, and sunscreen on your neck and decollate. It's also important to pay attention to the skin on your hands, the scalp, the tops of the ears, and the lips.
9. Exfoliate at least once a week
Exfoliation doesn't have to be a laborious skincare step. If you've never tried an exfoliant in the past start with Pure Fiji's Exfoliating Scrub. A gentle yet thorough manual exfoliant, it is boosted with Papaya enzyme which helps to gently loosen and dislodge dead skin cells and impurities without stripping the skin. It is fabulous for brightening your skin tone.
10. Use a product with hyaluronic acid to soothe tired eyes
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold water. It's a great hydrator for the skin, so it's definitely going to give superficial plumping to help with fine lines. So when your eyes are looking a little tired after a long night working (or partying), dab on Pure Fiji's Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream with this powerful ingredient.
With the right skin care routine and natural skin care products in place like Pure Fiji maintaining gorgeous skin will be a lot easier as your enter your thirties and beyond!
