10 facts about how to properly treat 20-something skin for men and women with darker skin tones


Hey-Esther The Esthetician here,

In today’s blog article I will be sharing with you my top 10 facts to properly treat 20-something skin for men and women with darker skin tones.

Twenty-something skin can sometimes be a challenge to treat.

As a young adult in your twenties, you are possibly already contemplating ways to prevent signs of aging.  You are also likely faced with concerns surrounding oily areas, clogged pores, and periodic flares of acne and/or acne post-acne scarring. In today’s blog article I’ve put together 10 simple practical advice for treating your 20-something skin. Here’s what you should know:

  1. Perhaps the most common issue
    • affecting young men and women in their 20’s is acne and/or acne scars. Oftentimes, having combination or oily skin doesn’t really help your case either. You’ve likely had to combat oiliness, enlarged or clogged pores in the T-zones area, plus a few random breakouts.
  2. Women in their 20s
    • are often affected by hormonal fluctuations, leading to premenstrual flares of breakouts and chin acne. some women who never had blemish problems in their teenage years suddenly have acne conditions in their 20s. Birth control pills and pregnancy can also contribute to potential hormonal skin issues. I’m sure you’ve probably had your share of the stress-related breakout to deal with.
  3. If you are acne-prone make sure
  4. A Deep-Cleansing Facial Treatments
    • Would be perfect! It’s a great way to detox your pores. If you need help finding the right products for your skin or just want some skin care advice – book a free 25min. virtual consultation today. –>   Book Now
  5. Salicylic Acid can be very helpful
    • If you’re struggling with oily and clogged skin. Salicylic acid may be the perfect exfoliant and antibacterial treatment for you. It’s a soothing agent used in both home-care and professional skin care. A Low-percentage (5%) salicylic peels can also help remove dead cell buildup as prep for deep-cleansing extraction treatment.
    • Professional Peels with heavier concentrations of salicylic acid (20%) are also helpful in drying up acne blemishes and treating mild hyperpigmentation, however, these higher concentration products may lead to a few days of flaking downtime.
    • Salicylic acid should be avoided if you are pregnant and/or allergic to salicylates.
    • Please remember to be transparent with your skin care professional.
  6. In your 20s you may begin to notice dry skin
    • can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Which are typically caused by dehydration (lack of water in the skin’s surface)
    • Oftentimes, we are quick to make the mistake of treating dry patches with rich, antiaging creams that are loaded with oily ingredients intended for older skin.
    • The fatty ingredients can potentially clog your pores leaving you with more issues than you were bargaining for… like the unwanted acne flares
    • Speak with a licensed esthetician to find lighter, less oily products and to avoid products that contain potentially comedogenic (pore-clogging) ingredients.
  7. Products in liquid form are better choices for
    • most 20-somethings. Look for a hydrating water-based, liquid moisturizer that contains humectants (water “magnets”) such as glycerin, sodium PCA, and sodium hyaluronate, instead of potentially clogging oils, waxes, and other fats.
    • Always check to ensure that products used for clog-prone and acne-prone skin have been dermatologist-tested for peace of mind that the products are noncomedogenic.
  8. Preventing skin from aging and sun damage
    • Let’s be real, if you don’t love it you will not use it daily. Apply sunscreen daily to help protect that beautiful melanin skin complexion from UV damage that can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.
  9. Using a topical antioxidants
    • in serum form is important for preventing inflammation that can lead to the beginning of skin breakdowns
    • Daily use of serum that contains multiple liposomal antioxidants can help silence reactions that can lead to a breakdown of skin structure over time.
  10. A Typical home-care program
    • for someone in their 20s should include a rinse-able, light-foaming cleanser for daily use
    • If you love using toners… stick with a non-alcoholic toner
    • Apply an alpha/beta hydroxy serum to help with both potential pore impactions and cell renewal
    • Noncomedogenic sunscreen for daily use
    • Noncomedogenic moisturizer for night hydration
    • Benzoyl peroxide gel if the skin is acne-prone
    • a preventative antioxidant serum and eye cream.
  11. Bonus:
    • If you’re anything like most of my clients… You want a simple and easy to follow home care regimen. You don’t have time to waste. in your case, I would suggest the following products:
