When you're in your 20s, you're often pressed for time and may be short on money with college loans and entry-level careers. Your biggest grooming goal may just be trying to look your good today, as the days of having to worry about thinning hair and lines and wrinkles seem a lifetime away.
Still, it's important that you keep some grooming tips in mind, and this grooming guide for men in their 20s will give you some tips to help you keep your hair and skin looking great today and in the future.
Tip #1: Make SPF non-negotiable.
If you decide to follow only one of these grooming tips for men in their 20s, make it this one. It could actually save your life one day!
Sun protection is no joke for men at any age. Using at least an SPF 15 sunscreen on a daily basis and SPF 30 when you'll be outside in the sun for long periods of time has been proven to dramatically decrease the risk of some forms of skin cancer - the number one most diagnosed form of cancer among men.
Plus, using sunscreen in your 20s can make you less likely to develop wrinkles prematurely in your 20s and 30s.
Tip #2: Go high end with your hair.
You may be strapped for cash some months, but your haircut is one place where you don't want to skimp.
Spending a little more on a haircut at a high-end barber shop or men's salon can help you get a cut that best suits you and is easier to maintain at home. That means you may be able to get away with less products, which will make your wallet happy.
Tip #3: Cut out harsh ingredients.
Steering clear of skincare products that contain alcohol and hair care products with sulfates in your 20s can help you have healthier skin and hair today and in the future.
You should also look for products that are free of phthalates and parabens, as some studies have shown these chemicals can cause health risks and irritate the scalp, face, and body skin.
Tip #4: Follow a basic skincare regimen.
You don't need a complicated skincare regimen in your 20s, but you should be cleansing, toning, and moisturizing on a daily basis with products that are geared for your skin type.
By doing so, it will give you a good foundation for having great-looking skin that you can build on when your skincare needs change in the future.
Tip #5: Stay ready to battle blemishes.
In your 20s, blemishes can still pose an unsightly problem, so make sure you stay stocked up on acne spot treatments with salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or sulfur to help them heal more quickly.
If you're faced with chronic acne, use a daily acne lotion.
You can also decrease your risk of blemishes by occasionally applying a clarifying clay face mask, which will draw impurities out of your pores.
