Our Top Skin Care Tips For Millennials
“A year from now you will wish you had started today.”
If you’re between the ages of 18-33, chances are skin care is at the bottom of your to-do list when it comes to staying happy and healthy. It’s time to bump skin care toward the top of that list; preventative skin care is actually the easiest way to look and feel your best. Keep scrolling for our top skin care tips for Millennials.
We can’t STRESS this one enough…
With mile long to-do lists and nonexistent free time, stress is impacting more millennials than ever before. And we all know, stress = unwelcome skin problems (hello, acne). However, you can absolutely live life in the fast lane and still love the skin you’re in.
Step One: Breathe in
Step Two: Breathe out (x10)
Step Three: Apply HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
High levels of anxiety have been shown to deplete the skin’s natural moisture reserves, leaving your skin feeling dehydrated, dry and flaky. Apply HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator to immediately smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and support the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid, a compound which attracts and holds on to moisture in skin cells.
Cleanse Your Skin
Doing a quick pass with a cleansing wipe at night is better than hitting the pillow with a full face of makeup, but it’s not going to prevent your skin from aging more quickly than you’d like.
Instead, opt for a fun routine (and a mini face massage) with the Clarisonic brush. This brush practically does the cleaning for you—with a subtle buzz you know it’s time to switch from cheeks to forehead, from forehead to neck, etc. In just a couple of minutes, you’ve cleansed your skin 6x better than if you had used your hands alone. Having trouble with acne? Pair SkinMedica’s Facial Cleanser with SkinMedica’s Acne Treatment Lotion to reduce the number of acne blemishes.

Now, let’s talk about botox. Small amounts of botox can actually work wonders for keeping your youthful, glowing skin intact. Staying on top of quick, 15 minute botox treatments in your 20s can save you from looking in the mirror to discover wrinkles and sagging skin.
Protect Your Skin
Apply sunscreen in the summer.
Apply sunscreen in the fall.
Apply sunscreen in the winter.
Apply sunscreen in the spring.
Perhaps one of the biggest favors you can do for yourself is to stop considering sunscreen as optional. Sunscreen should be used year-round to keep the skin healthy. In fact, short, intense exposure to sunlight (like driving to work or walking to the store) can be the most harmful and lead to melanoma. We love Colorescience’s Sunforgettable® for easy, regular applications. The mineral sunscreen brush SPF 30/50 is a self-dispensing powder brush that makes it easy to apply and reapply throughout the day, right on top of your makeup.
