If you’re in your 20s, now’s the perfect time to adopt a regular skin care routine. Nope—it’s never too early to start paying attention to your skin. After all, how you care for your complexion now can have an impact on how it looks in the future. Want to help maintain your youthful-looking glow? Try incorporating the following five skin care products, including a face scrub and face mask, into your beauty regimen.
The American Academy of Dermatology recommends women in their 20s use a facial cleanser twice daily. After all, cleansing can help rid your skin of dirt, excess oils, and makeup residue. There are so many different types of facial cleansers out there, so look for one that’s formulated for your skin type and specific needs. The L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, and L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser are all formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of your skin without over-drying. Squeeze a small amount of your chosen facial cleanser into your hands, then add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Editor’s tip: Headed to the gym? Make sure to bring a transportable facial cleanser, like micellar water, with you so that you can cleanse post-workout.
One of the best steps you can take in your 20s is to incorporate exfoliation into your skin care routine. Exfoliation can help rid the surface of your skin of dulling buildup, leaving you with a more radiant-looking complexion. An easy way to exfoliate is by using a face scrub, like the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub, L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, or L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub. Twice a week, apply your face scrub of choice to dry skin, then wet your hands and massage the face scrub in and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
When you’re in your 20s, your skin can certainly benefit from the use of a face scrub two or three times a week. Whether you have dull skin, oily skin, stressed skin, or another concern, finding one that suits your skin’s needs can leave you with beautiful-looking skin. Choose from our collection of face masks, which includes the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, and L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. Two or three times a week, apply an even layer of face mask to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. You can also try multi-masking—applying different face masks to different areas of your face at the same time to address multiple skin care concerns.
Moisturizing should play an important role in your skin care routine in your 20s. When it comes to finding the best moisturizer to use in your 20s, opt for one that’s formulated for your skin type—and apply it to damp skin after cleansing to help lock in hydration. If you’ve got oily skin, a lightweight moisturizer may be all you need, while if you have dry skin, you may find yourself needing to use a heavier formula. The L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Think you only need to slather on the sunscreen when you’re spending the day at the beach? Uh-uh! Regardless of your age, you should wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen (meaning one that protects against UVA and UVB rays) every day—rain or shine. When you spend prolonged periods of time in the sun sans protection, this can lead to damage—which can lead to visible signs of aging down the road like fine lines and wrinkles and dark spots. According to the AAD, think of using broad-spectrum sunscreen in your 20s as a preventative measure you can take. Although you may be pressed for time, that’s no excuse to skip out on this crucial skin care step. Instead, reach for a moisturizer formulated with SPF 30 or higher, like the L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30. Apply it as directed—and make sure to take additional sun protection measures as well, including limiting your amount of time in the sun, seeking shade when you’re outside, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
