I had the same wake-up call experience when I was 24 haha. This is the perfect time to start a skincare routine! It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or super expensive. Try to look for products without fragrance and that are comedogenic so they won’t clog your pores. I really like skincare products by The Ordinary because they are cheap af and work well. This is basically what I do:

  • gentle cleanser in the am and pm (I swear by this one)
  • AM routine: Hydrating hyaluronic acid serum + Vitamin C serum, then moisturizer with SPF (At least 30!)
  • PM: hyaluronic acid serum, retinol cream (I use this one about every other night) + night cream (lately I’ve been using this one)
  • about once a week I use some sort of glycolic acid peel which helps to slough off dry/dead skin and gradually soften fine lines. I like this one and this one.
  • making sure you stay hydrated, exercise regularly, and eating relatively healthy are also important! I always notice my skin looks rough and my fine lines are more pronounced after I go out drinking for example lol.

TLDR just make a skincare routine you stick to and WEAR SPF every day (even if you’re inside all day)!!

Thank you so much for this post. I quit minox to develop beard gains 3 years ago bc of skin issues. I’m hoping with this knowledge I can get back into it. Here’s what I’ve found:

No problem. A good place to start any learning is Dr. Dray on YouTube (she’s a dermatologist). You could just type in something like “under eye circles” and go from there. She also has videos on all the different ingredients I mentioned here.

As for recommendations, I can put some products down here that I have used, but unfortunately it’s going to be trial and error for you because what works for my skin might not work for yours. Eucerin, Cerave, and The Ordinary all have affordable options. Eucerin and Cerave are both drug store brands. The Ordinary can be found in some stores but I order their products online. They have a helpful thing on their website where you can put in what you’re looking for and they can recommend what products will work.

If you want to start trying something, here’s a few recommendations (something to note is that sometimes drug stores have drug store brands next to these brands that have very similar ingredients but are cheaper and could be worth a shot):

-Cerave Cream to foam cleanser. You can probably find it at a drugstore at a buy one get one half off price sale. (CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser | Makeup Remover and Face Wash With Hyaluronic Acid | Fragrance Free | 19 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CQDF382/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_E8QJC404N18XWCFYFKDF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1).
-Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser, a favorite of mine that I keep buying. It’s very gentle but also good to work on its own to take off sunscreen. (Vanicream Facial Cleanser, Gluten and Sulfate Free, For Sensitive Skin, 8 Fl Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QY1XZ4W/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_0M063ZPN6NTHNCMX3G94)
-Neutrogena Oil Free Acne wash, any flavor but avoid anything with harsh physical exfoliants like microbeads – these Cleansers have salycillic acid in them which is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) recommended for a lot of skin conditions. It mostly works by gently exfoliating the oil glands, helping to remove build up on the skin and brightening the skin. It’s good for hyperpigmentation too. (Neutrogena OilFree Acne and Redness Facial Cleanser Soothing Face Wash, 6 Fl Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002ECVMWM/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_0TBTKXQWYZHVGBRWBCNT)

-Cerave PM. This is the only non-sunscreen moisturizer I’m recommending because it’s just such a great product and most people are happy with it. It is a lightweight, has niacinimide which helps with hyperpigmentation and redness, hyaluronic acid, which pulls water into the top layer of the skin, and ceramides, which help protect your skin barrier. It’s wonderful and the only complaints I’ve ever read about it are from folks who are sensitive to niacinimide. Also it says PM but you can use this during the day under your sunscreen as well if you want. (CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion | Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide | Ultra-Lightweight, Oil-Free Moisturizer for Face | 3 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00365DABC/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_N41ECRCZFFBYMAMB4XQ4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1)

-Cerave has two moisturizing sunscreens which I’ll add below. I have not tried the second one but it’s newer and some people like it better. I personally like the first one but I’ve seen others complain about it not blending into the skin well:
1. Cerave facial moisturizing Lotion (CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 | Oil-Free Face Moisturizer with Sunscreen | Non-Comedogenic | 3 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00F97FHAW/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_JD452AAYVSPCT1YTXAP6)
2. Cerave ultra light moisturizing Lotion (CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30, with Hyaluronic Acid & Ceramides, 1.7 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077TQR6ZW/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_2QEP4EXGQPMZPXQ6R91E?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1)
-Eucerin Daily Protection – this is a decent moisturizer with Sunscreen but doesn’t have any other ingredients in it that would help with skin problems (such as niacinimide). But it’s cost effective and lightweight (Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30, Dry Skin, 4 fl. oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00008MNZH/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_FQ7AMS4TV58ZS8M7HGWN).

Sunscreen, more than Cleansers and moisturizers, are going to be more trial and error. Sometimes I like to just go to the clearance section and purchase ones that are going to expire in a few months to give myself a trial run with them to see how they go. A couple things to note. There are two main different types of sunscreens: chemical and physical/mineral (do a quick Google search to see which is which in terms of ingredients). Chemical is good because it often times doesn’t leave any white cast on the skin (this can be a problem with many physical/mineral sunscreens, especially for people who have darker skin tones). However, many people complain that chemical sunscreens burn and sting around the eyes. Mineral sunscreens tend to be gentler, but again, they can often leave a white cast. I would recommend either just giving one of the ones I’ve listed above a shot or just picking one that looks appealing to you and go with it. I also don’t know if you are a person with a darker skin tone, but it might be helpful to you if you look up recommended sunscreens for dark skin. I haven’t had to do this because I’m pretty light skinned and even a little cast doesn’t look terrible on me.

As for any serums or any additional treatments, they aren’t necessary for basic skin care, however, once you get into a routine, you may decide that you want to try and improve your skin a bit more. At this point, I’d recommend looking into The Ordinary. They are a good company in that their products are very very affordable and science based, for the most part. I have never had a problem with any of them. If you are looking to improve your skin texture and get rid of dark spots, vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) and alpha hydroxy acids are a good place to start. Both Cerave and the ordinary have vitamin C products that are good and affordable. The ordinary has a very affordable glycolic acid toner or a lactic acid serum, either of which could be used a few times a week to improve skin texture.

OK I think I’ve written you enough of a book. Sorry if this is overwhelming. It can get complicated but once you orient yourself to what you need and what works for you, it really doesn’t have to be complicated. I think starting out with the basics is best. Then when you get time/motivation/desire to add more, slowly try adding other things if you want to. 🙂
