As they say in beauty and skin care, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (maybe even several injections of Botox in the future). This is why leading British skin care brand Elemis recently introduced a line that specifically caters to the young and tender skin of teens and early twenties: Elemis FreshSkin.
The Elemis FreshSkin line features 9 new products, each formulated with active botanical ingredients specifically chosen for their ability to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, protect and boost young skin's elasticity to keep it youthful and fresh for a longer period of time. Among these choice ingredients are elderflower, rosehip seed oil, apple, blackcurrant, goji berry and geranium.
If you’re within this age group, you should know that prevention—and protection—is the best thing you can do for your skin at this time. Trust us, you don’t want to wait for the first few lines to appear before you start paying attention to your skin! If you’re still not sure where to start, here are a few easy tips for you!
Choose a gentle cleanser. A good beauty regimen starts with clean skin. For this, all you need is a gentle cleanser that thoroughly removes dirt and excess oil without irritating your skin, like Peachy Perfect Gentle Face Wash.
Ditch dead skin cells. Get rid of dead skin cells that clog the pores and trigger acne breakouts with a gentle, pore-refining scrub like Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash. As a bonus, scrubs also refine your skin’s tone and texture while brightening your complexion and enabling your other skin care products to penetrate more deeply.
Never sleep with makeup on. Remember that your skin rejuvenates itself as you sleep. Get the most out of this process by cleansing and moisturizing your face thoroughly at night. Too tired to wash your face? Keep Make Up Away Cleansing Wipes at your bedside table to rid your skin of makeup, grime and dirt that can interrupt its healing process.
Mask On. Pulled an all-nighter for the finals—or a friend’s birthday? Don’t forget to detoxify and replenish lost nutrients with a mineral- and antioxidant-rich face mask like Deep Clean and Magical Moisture Face Mask Duo.
Follow these four simple rules and you’re on your way to a brighter and fresher future skin!
