As a Skin Therapist, I need to tell you: your 20's is the time to lay the foundation for having healthy skin in the future. It's all about prevention and creating the habit of looking after your skin - and trust me on this, your skin will thank you in the future!
Most 20-year-old skins are slightly dull or looking tired due to their lifestyle and exposure to the sun.
Moreover, from the age of 20, our fibroblast cells re-division ceases, meaning we stop producing three very important proteins in the dermis: Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid.
As you enter you mid-20's, (more or less from the age of 25 onwards), the amount of each of these proteins present in your skin will further decline by 2% each year.
In short, your 20's is exactly the time to start looking after your skin with professional skincare (if you haven't already started) and, needless to say, ALWAYS apply sun protection - especially for us, living under the harsh Australian sun!
