During your 20s choosing the right skincare ingredients to maintain healthy skin as you get older is key.
Vitamin C is a skincare staple no matter what your age. It helps brighten dull skin, reduce sunspots, freckles and evens skin tone. Vitamin C also helps counteract the negative effects of free radicals. Created by pollution, smoke, dust and the sun, free radicals are molecules found everywhere which attack healthy skin cells accelerating the aging process. Pretty much your skin’s worst nightmare. It’s vital to start protecting your skin against this onslaught early on.
Charcoal is an excellent skin purifier. It acts as a magnet drawing out dirt, impurities, bacteria and other microparticles from deep within your skin’s pores. It also helps detoxify the skin cleaning out any toxins. If you (like a lot of us) are still suffering from teenage breakouts into your 20s, charcoal can help balance the skin and prevent pimples and blackheads.
A gentle exfoliant, salicylic acid not only cleans and exfoliates the outer layers of the skin but also within the skin’s pores. This helps existing pimples and breakouts to heal faster and because of the antibacterial benefits prevent their return.
