8 Things You Need To Know About Skincare As An Adult

Because you now have ageing concerns AND adult acne to contend with.

In high school, I was fortunate enough to be mostly spared from the wrath of the acne gods.

But oh, my sweet summer child, that all changed when I hit my twenties.

Lifestyle factors* aside, the biggest change I made was adopting a strict AF skincare routine — which was both anti-ageing and anti-acne.

For anyone suffering similar struggles, or if you're just in need of an ~adult worthy~ skincare routine, here's what you need to know:

1. Reconsider the humble cleanser.

2. And always, always double-cleanse in the evening.

3. Chemical exfoliation > physical exfoliation.

4. Serums are your most powerful weapons.

5. Embrace the power of retinol.

6. Moisturiser is not your enemy.

7. Slather on that SPF daily, unless you want to age like well-worn leather.

8. And finally, please stop touching your fucking face.
