10 ways of taking care of your skin in your 20s | Esse Skincare

Taking care of your skin should be one of your priorities and the earlier you start the better. Here are a few ways to do it and protect your skin in the long-run:

Always wash your hands before you wash your face

Make sure that your hands are truly clean before washing your face, otherwise, any bacteria or other things on your hands get rubbed all over your face, which can cause your skin to breakout.

Don’t wear too much make up

Women in their 20s likely don’t need to overdo it. Keeping it simple makes it quicker to get out the door in the morning and easier to remove it before going to bed. You can always use special occasions to wear more make up.

Take off your make up before bed

No matter how tired you might be, take all of your makeup off your face before climbing into bed.

Invest in good skincare products

Great skincare products are not something only older people use; starting early is a good way to prevent skin flaws rather than trying to simply address them after they’ve already appeared. The question is always – What products are ideal for my skin type? I’ve used Esse skincare website to find out what are the best ones for me and after ordering them and using them for a few weeks now, I can say the results are very satisfying. Using the right products on your skin make such a difference. Do you test here too – https://www.esseskincare.com/personalised-routine

Drink plenty of water

Drinking water can make a noticeable difference in the look, feel, and health of your skin.

Eat Well

Eating healthy, whole foods, or so-called “clean” eating, can make a big impact on the health and appearance of your skin.

Read the ingredients on your skincare products

Learn to read the ingredients on your skincare products because much of what you apply on your skin goes into your bloodstream. I know for example that the skincare products I got from Esse are organic, vegan and cruelty-free. They create an environment on the skin that favours the growth of beneficial microbes. It uses prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and includes LIVE probiotic microbes in two of the serums to make functional changes to the skin’s microbiome. Esse does not believe in damaging skin in pursuit of short-term results, it optimises skin health to slow ageing in the long-term.

Sleep well

Skin cell regeneration is most active between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. so it’s important to get your eight hours (or so) to wake up feeling energized, happy, and healthy.

Wear sunscreen

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen whenever you’re going to spend any time outside. 

Wear sunglasses

The first signs of ageing you can see is usually around your eyes, where the skin is thinner and more delicate, so it’s important to wear sunglasses with wider sides to protect the eye area from all angles of the sun.

Product Review| Man Polish

I’m sure I’m not the only one out there stealing her boyfriend’s products. Well, stealing is a very strong word, I prefer to say “borrowing his products” even though I end up using them more than he does.

But I’m here to tell you about a specific one from Man Polish, which is a gradual tanner but ensures that you don’t leave the house looking like you’ve been tango’d.

Here are a few reasons why I’m using it instead of buying my own tanner:

This one is fragrance-free, which basically means that it won’t take over my perfume. It’s also vegan-friendly and non-animal tested, which is surprisingly hard to find nowadays. It includes shea butter, jojoba oil & argon oil which really moisturises your skin and it’s made in the UK.

You have different ranges, the subtle which is the one I’m using (and by I, I mean my boyfriend and me), the strong and the neutral which doesn’t tan, simply moisturises.

If this is something you would like to try, head over to their website, I’m sure you won’t regret it! https://manpolishuk.com/

Naturally White | Billion Dollar Smile

I had the opportunity to test another teeth whitening product with natural ingredients.

We all know how this industry is full of products that say that they do what they don’t, so I believe it’s quite important that I share on the blog the successful experiences.

So, I’ve tried Billion Dollar Smile’s whitening polish toothbrush and it was an amazing finding, formulated by dentists and made in the UK, that I had to introduce to you.

The toothpaste consists of a blend of natural coconut oil, which we all know I love, Charcoal and Pineapple Enzyme, which naturally polishes and makes our teeth naturally become more white.

I’ve been using it every day in place of any regular toothpaste, so it doesn’t take any not extra time on my daily routine. Also, my boyfriend decided to use it too and he’s not even a fan of coconut oil!

I love the fact that it’s packed with natural ingredients and no nasty parabens.

If you want to give it a try, go check the entire range at Superdrug.com where you can save 1/3 of the price.
