The older we are, the more obsessed we become with skincare. It’s not just to stave off the signs of aging, it’s generally because skincare is kind of fun. There’s something so soothing about that daily nourishing ritual, something about knowing that you’ll wake up to a gorgeous glowing face after you’ve applied a brightening mask in the evening.

What a luxurious feel, to find a good product and then get home and try it out for the first time. And believe us, if you take care of your skin when you’re in your twenties, it will thank you later on when you’re in your fifties. Therefore, let’s have some fun and see which products are essential for a sexy millennial gal who wishes to retain her youthful radiance.

Moisturizer for your skin type

One thing to keep in mind is acne. In case you struggle with them, it’s best to ask your dermatologist for a prescription of benzoyl peroxide and retinol. And if it’s severe and nothing else worked, antibiotics or isotretinoin might be prescribed. The point is, if there’s a specific skin issue, you need to sort it out with a dermatologist before you move on to regular skin care.

Now, for dry skin Pond’s Age Miracle Deep Action Night Cream is a dream come true. But if you need a daytime option, go for Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream. For oily or combo skin, it’s good to pick something light, like the Lotus Herbals Alphamoist Alpha Hydroxy Skin Renewal Oil-Free moisturizer. You will also need to use sunscreen every day, regardless of your skin type.

The Perfect Primer

If you use makeup, even if it’s just BB cream or foundation to even out your skin tone, a primer is a must. The Youngblood Cosmetics Mineral Primer not only gives your foundation a flawless finish, but it hydrates it through the day and makes sure that your makeup stays in place. Mineral primers are generally a good idea for youthful skin, especially if it’s sensitive or prone to breakouts. They contain quality ingredients, and most of them are tested for common allergens and tend to have a formula that doesn’t contain anything that could potentially irritate your face.

Vitamin C serum

The first signs of aging start appearing in our early to mid-twenties. This is the time when you slowly want to start addressing the issue. You don’t need heavy moisturizers, but a vitamin C serum is perfect for young skin. Our favourites are the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, a cult classic by now, and the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic that contains ascorbic acid, vitamin E, and ferulic acid. However, they’re very pricey, and a lot of us don’t have money to splurge; your best bet in this case is The Body Shop Vitamin C Boost or the Kaya AntOx Vitamin C Formula.

Brightening eye cream

Our eye area is very sensitive and tends to show wrinkles more obviously than any other part of our face. Don’t you just hate the way it makes your concealer crease under the eyes? Well, don’t worry, we all get creasing there, but something that can help immensely is an eye cream, particularly if you have heavy dark circles. FabIndia Aloe Vera Under Eye Gel contains aloe vera, so it can really soothe those heavy bags and keep the area bright.

Gentle Cleanser

Cleansing is so important, especially if you have some bad leftover teenage habits and keep forgetting to take your makeup off in the evening. There are a number of face wash formulas which will help you take care of your skin. You absolutely have to cleanse your skin from makeup and dirt before bed. If you have the fuss in the morning, it’s fine to just splash your face with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer. But if you lie down with a filthy face you’re looking at clogged pores, acne and dull skin. Lakme Gentle and Soft Deep Pore Cleanser works well, and you can generally find pretty damn amazing cleansers in drugstores. Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash or the Greenberry Organic Detox Charcoal Face Wash are also a good pick!

You know the drill by now – consistent skincare routine brings the best results. There isn’t a product in the world, regardless of how expensive, that will solve the issue of bad habits. Find what works for you, stick to it, and you’ll look youthful for a very long time!
