Time really does fly by. One minute you're out partying until 5 a.m., the next you're in front of the mirror staring at your first wrinkle. But there's no need to panic! With the right skincare regimen and life tweaks, your complexion will be back to its glowing, youthful self.
Read on for the skincare habits you should adopt once you hit 25 (Even better if you start sooner!).
Use a serum
Whether it's brightening, hydrating, or anti-acne, a serum will take your daily beauty routine to the next level because it contains more potent ingredients than regular moisturizer and it can penetrate deeper into your skin.

Invest in eye cream
If you don't want evidence that you smoked, drank, and slept late during your teens and early 20s, then you need this. Plus, it'll help prevent future wrinkles from forming!

Apply SPF every day
The sun can make your skin age quicker, so do use at least an SPF 30 daily.

Don't skip exfoliation
Using a chemical exfoliator, which is gentler than gritty scrubs, will promote cell regeneration and stimulate the production of collagen.

Opt for gentle products
Even if you still get pimples, avoid using harsh soaps and moisturizers with drying ingredients. At this point in your life, you want to be *extra* careful with your skin to avoid future damage.

Drink more water
While drinking it won't actually hydrate your skin, it's still better than pumping your body with sugary sodas and juices! If you hate the bland taste of water, try adding in pieces of fruit. ;)
Stop sleeping in your makeup
Do we really need to explain why it's important to remove your makeup at night?

The excess blood flow will carry oxygen and nutrients to your skin and remove any toxins—WebMD states that you should think of it as "cleansing your skin from the inside." And at the end of your workout, you'll end up with a nice, healthy flush—sans blush!
