This Is One Back to School Skin Essential You Shouldn't Skip

Our beloved summer breaks are winding down, and school's about to be in session yet again. In the midst of all the exciting (and sometimes stressful) hustle and bustle of shopping for dorms or deciding what shoes to pack, our skin can become neglected, and acne can crop up. Luckily, we just so happen to live in the same century as the literal superhero of skin, Dr. Pimple Popper herself. When she's not posting disgustingly satisfying extraction videos on her YouTube or Instagram, Dr. Sandra Lee is crafting bomb formulas to help keep our skin happy and acne free. 

Her newly launched line, SLMD Skincare, focuses on treating all types of acne without irritating or dehydrating the skin, something a lot of skincare brands can't claim. If you're looking for an easy routine you can fit in a packed schedule, SLMD's Starter Kit has everything you really need. Available in a 30 or 60-day option, this twice-a-day kit includes a cleanser, acne lotion, clarifying treatment and moisturizer to keep your beautiful face as healthy as it can be.

Sometimes it's not all about what products you use though. If you're dealing with stubborn acne that won't budge no matter what, try avoiding hair products like mousse or gel, washing your pillowcases or even limiting your dairy intake! If you needed to clear up a zit like, two seconds ago, the Acne Spot Treatment is your answer. This little magic rollerball contains powerful salicylic acid that'll zap those spots super fast. And, it dries clear, so you can even apply it underneath makeup! Where has this been all my life?

You can shop the entire line (which is sure to be expanding soon!) on Dr. Pimple Popper's website. May your semesters be happy and pimple free, collegiettes.
