Get Back-to-School Worthy Skin in 1 Week
We all tend to slack off on our skincare routine during the lazy days of summer. Here’s a daily tip for the week leading up to school to get you back on track before the first period bell rings.
Day 1: Routine
Reintroduce a daily skincare regimen back into your routine. Wash your face every morning and night. At the very least, cleanse and moisturize and if your skin needs a little extra love, then add a toner to your routine as well.
Day 2: Exfoliate
Clean off the build-up of dirt, grime and dead skin. You’ve immersed yourself into new ventures and cultures this summer, as well as lots of sun screen. It’s time to exfoliate and get rid of any muck that’s been left behind.
Day 3: Make-up Free
Give your face a break by going an entire day without any make-up. Your face needs a rest, so let it breathe with ease and freedom.
Day 4: Mask
Clear out those pores with a deep-cleansing mask. Slap on your favorite mask before you settle into your nighttime routine. Watch your favorite show, journal or read the next chapter in your book while giving yourself a little facial.
Day 5: Bye Bye Blemish
Now that you’ve spent a few days caring for your skin, it may react. Tackle that pimple with spot treatment. By treating your acne a few days before school, your skin will have the proper amount of time it needs to react.
Day 6: Beauty Sleep
Your skin needs a good night’s sleep too. Give it extra treatment tonight. Opt for a night cream after washing your face before bedtime. Skin heats up overnight and night creams typically have ingredients that are triggered by that heat which create major hydration.
Day 7: Rise and Shine
It’s game day, so start your day with a fresh wash, moisturize and then add the pretty make-up look you’ve been practicing all week. Accentuate your best and most beautiful features, smile and head off to your first day back at school.
