7 Simple Tricks to Prevent Ageing in Your 20s

Stop right now, thank you very much.

If you’ve hit that brutal point in your life where you’re actually noticing your age, I have two things to say to you: welcome to adulthood, and let’s get down to business.

Gone are the days where you could drink a whole bottle of wine (or two), watch the sun rise, then fall asleep with a full-face of makeup and wake-up with nothing but a bit of smudged mascara to worry about. Instead, you’ll most likely find sexy congested cheeks, dark hollows under your eyes and enlarged pores gasping for some H20.

It’s tough, I know. I’m living in it right now, too. But what I’ve quickly learned is that a little effort goes a LONG way.

Prevention is the cure (and it’s as easy as eye mask n’ chill) – so try these simple tricks to keep your skin sparkling through your 20s and beyond.
