Back to School Skincare

Back to school shopping usually includes books, bags and new clothes but also about skincare.
Changes in routine and environment often throw our skin off a little.

These skincare essentials make excellent additions to your routine and will have you looking and feeling your best all the way through the semester.

No Clogged Pores

Late night studying or socializing can mean you’re exhausted by the time you make it to your bed and the last thing you feel like doing is washing your face.
Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Facial Wipes have an alcohol free formula and a soothing blend of cucumber and aloe extracts to cleanse, remove makeup and leave skin hydrated, soft and smooth in one quick and easy step.

Leaving these beside your bed can be a quick fix and a lifesaver once in a while but remember to cleanse your face properly in the morning.

Deep Clean

While you might be busy studying chemistry, medieval literature or microeconomics, take a few minutes to deep cleanse your complexion.

If you watch my Instagram stories, you’ll know I love this mask!
Not only because E.L.F. Cosmetics Pore Clearing Glitter Peel Off Mask is glittery but for it’s amazing ability to get deep into the pores and strip away dirt and oil for soft, clear looking skin.

It is enriched with charcoal, witch hazel and lavender to reveal a more refined complexion.

It is a daily exfoliating scrub and a detoxifying body mask that uses crushed Brazilian quartz crystals to help polish and smooth the skin, while Amazon River clay helps to purify the skin for super soft, irresistible skin.

This can be used on the whole body.

Smooth over skin and allow it to sit for a few minutes and then rinse away the dryness.

It's lightly scented with their signature fragrance of pistachio and salted caramel to instantly transport you to Rio.

Spot the Treatment

The school year can be stressful and with stress can come breakouts.

boscia Clear Complexion Willow Bark Spot Treatment can help problem areas as they pop up.
Use it anytime: in class, overnight or even under makeup.

It uses Vitamins C and E, Willow Bark Extract, Philodendron Bark Extract and a natural beta hydroxy acid that gently exfoliates and purifies the skin and refines the appearance of pores. It also helps to minimize and prevent dark spots from forming as blemishes heal.

Need a little Glow

Long days in class and at work can leave your skin feeling and looking lackluster.

Keep a bottle of Witch Hazel Toner in your bag and give yourself a light spritz to feel renewed throughout your day.

I like to purchase a large bottle of Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Facial Toner and put some into a small spray bottle to take with me throughout the day.

It is a gentle toner that uses organic, non-distilled Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera and Rose Water to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and balance the pH level of skin, giving the skin a natural glow and its alcohol-free so skin will not feel tight or dry.

Lip Service

Keep lips in fine form with an exfoliating scrub and a hydrating lip balm.

Lip scrubs use coarse sugar and oil to smooth and soften lips, and come in delicious flavors like Honey, Mint and Bubblegum. Sweep some across the lips and rub to exfoliate then wipe off dry skin with a cloth.

Follow up with a hydrating balm, a rich beeswax balm with coconut oil, shea butter and flavors like berry, citrus, cocoa or mint.
