Keep­ing skin’s hy­dra­tion level op­ti­mum with a ba­sic mois­turiser in your 20s has far-reach­ing ef­fects. It doesn’t have to be from an ex­pen­sive brand – all you need is to be sure it has a min­i­mum SPF20, and gives you both UVA and UVB pro­tec­tion. “Oily, prob­lem­atic skin needs wa­ter, not oil, so wa­ter-based mois­turis­ers are ideal,” says Meara Dougherty, skin­care spe­cial­ist at Prod­uct House, a lead­ing spa prod­uct sup­plier in the Mid­dle East. If you have dry or nor­mal skin, use a slightly richer mois­turiser and ap­ply all over the face in an up­wards mo­tion from your chest right up to your hair­line to keep skin firm and lifted.

An ex­ten­sive nightly rou­tine isn’t nec­es­sary at this stage, but it is bet­ter to be proac­tive than re­ac­tive when it comes to skin­care. Af­ter cleans­ing, pre­ven­ta­tive tech­niques like mas­sag­ing your face with your daily mois­turiser be­fore you go to bed are good for lym­phatic drainage and aid the repar­a­tive process that oc­curs overnight. Fin­ish with a pea-sized amount of eye cream.
