Your 20s make up a crucial period in your life. You're transitioning from being a collegiette to an actual adult. These are the years in which you find yourself and figure out what you want do with the rest of your life. From renting your first apartment and graduating, to starting a new career and building new relationships, you learn what it means to grow up.

Even with all these stressors, you have to be able to still have fun and let loose because your 20s are also some of the most exciting years of your life. To get you started, here are ten things every girl in her 20s should know.

1. Learn how to manage your budget

Rent, groceries, utilities, and of course, the weekly bar tab—these finances add up quickly, and if you haven't learned how to manage your budget, you can say goodbye to the weekend girls trip to the beach that you have been helping to plan for the past two months. To have fun, you have to have money. Sad, but true.

2. Interview like a champ

If you are approaching graduation or have already graduated, job hunting is inevitable, unless your life plan is to live in your parents' basement for the rest of your life. If you are a good interviewer, your opportunity of landing your dream job increases dramatically. Even if you are interviewing for a position you may not want, leaving a lasting impression on a recruiter or HR team could potentially mean a future job opportunity.

3. Take care of your skin

Yes, I mean it. Even if your skin looks amazing and wrinkle-free right now, your 20s determines what your skin will look like when you're in your 30s, 40s, and so on. So in order to keep wrinkles and damaged skin at bay, wear sunscreen, moisturize and wash your face EVERY NIGHT before you go to bed. Going to bed with your makeup on clogs your pores, dulls your complexion, causes dryness, wrinkles and excels aging.

4. Cherish your relationships

Your 20s are a time for you to realize that boyfriends will come and go, but girlfriends are there to stay. When you are crying over a broken heart, your friends are the ones who are there to help you through it all, no matter what. Take time to talk to and visit your family. Don’t push them aside when you go to college and graduate, because they are the ones who will be there when no one else is.

5. Dress to impress

At this point in your life, you should be learning how to dress professionally and figuring out what looks good on you. It’s ok to experiment, too! Start to fill your closet with staple items that can be mixed and matched with different items.
