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.
