When you are in 20s, you have the benefit of time being on your side. “Your skin has a lot of good elasticity, so that means it’s plumper and you want to maintain that in the terms of hydration,” says Radha Mikkilineni, MD, of New York’s Sadick Dermatology. However, some women may face leftover acne from the teenage years, says Mikkilineni. “Your hormones surge and that is causing extra sebum or oil production, potentially clogging the pores and causing acne,” she explains. Most of Mikkilineni’s younger clientele are in that category, so she recommends using products that have a grain in it to break up the clogged pores.
