Well, although not every woman experiences noticeable changes when it comes to her health and body in her 20s, majority of the women do notice certain significant changes.

Now, as we know, ageing is an inevitable process that every organism has to go through and, as humans, we too experience signs of ageing, regardless of the gender.

Wrinkles, fine lines, age-related diseases, body pain, fatigue, etc., are some of the main signs of ageing, which can be seen in both men and women.

However, there are certain physical and physiological changes that can be noticed specifically in women who are in their 20s.

Most of these signs indicate that the ageing process has started in a woman, and some of them can frustrate women to no end!

So, have a look at some of the major changes that occur in a woman's body in her 20s, which are as listed below.


1. Slower Metabolism

Body changes during 20s for women include getting curvier or putting on weight due to a decreased metabolic rate.


2. Adult Acne

Due to various hormonal changes that occur in a woman's body during her 20s, she may develop adult acne or cystic acne.
