So you are in your 20's and the world is your oyster...beware. This is the time in your life when irreprable damage is made to your skin. Right now its important to flaunt and protect your greatest asset...your face! There are some important beauty musts for those in their 20s to ensure a youthful glow well into your 40s!

1. DON'T SMOKE! Smoking is the second highest risky behaviour for your skin, and causes an excess of free radicals, which cause premature aging.

2. WEAR SUNGLASSES! Sunglasses will protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays. Wearing some large, stylish frames will not only prevent UV radiation, but will also reduce squinting, another cause of aging to the eye area.

3. WEAR SUNSCREEN! Every Minute. Every Day. Use at least SPF 15 on your face daily, and if you wear makeup, make sure there is some sun protection built in. One of my favorites is the JOUER Luminizing Moisture Tint, which offers a lightweight coverage, moisturizer, and sun protection all in one!

4. DRINK WATER! Water flushes toxins from the body and keeps the skin moisturized, and therefore fresh and youthful. If you don't like water, the antioxidant power in green tea is an excellent alternative.

5. WASH OFF MAKEUP! Every night, even if you are a little tipsy from the party....use a good quality makeup remover to clean your face. Makeup left of the skin can seep into pores and cause irritation and blemishes. JAPONESQUE makes a great wipe that is perfect for when you might not want to spend the time. They are alcohol free and contain vitamin e to sooth irritated skin!

6. WEAR LESS MAKEUP! You are young and your skin looks the best it ever will, so don't cover it up! If you have uneven skin, use a tinted moisturizer, but avoid heavy foundations that cover up skin, and avoid powder, as it can make you look older. Try some of these favorites to keep your look fresh and young, like you!

BLUSH: Try NARS cream blush in Enchanted. This vitamin e rich cream will give you a fresh, dewy look with its subtle shimmer.

$28 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com

GLOSS: Keep lip color neautral, as bold and/or dark lip colors can make you look older. YSL Golden Gloss in Golden Macadamia is a very good place to start, with gold flecks to enhance the natural color of the lip

$30 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com

MASCARA: YSL Everlong Mascara in #2 Brown is a great mascara that won't leave your lashes clumpy or too dark. MY TIP: After several coats on the upper and lower lashes, run a dry mascara brush through the lashes to separate flawlessly and nobody will even know you are wearing it!

$30 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com

That's really all you need in your beauty bag at this point. Wearing excessive makeup in your 20s can make you appear older...so if you don't want to be a walking punch line...less is more!
