Your first post-college summer is now dying down, but just because the high from finally graduating might have worn off by now, that doesn’t mean your skin has to suffer the consequences. We know it’s hard watching all your friends move back into the dorms for another year of college fun while you’re heading off to work every morning, but resist the urge to wallow. In fact, a little beauty-centric self-care might just do the trick to bring you back to your glowing, youthful self (because, yes, the new freshmen look absolutely tiny, but we promise you’re still young).

That’s why EVER has just what you need: the new Pretty Young Trio is your all-in-one routine for creating healthy-looking, youthful and glowing skin—nobody will be able to tell you lived off ramen noodles for the last four years. These three superfood skincare products are the perfect way to start a new skincare routine meant for your adult self. Even if you have no idea what you’re doing (which, let’s be real, that’s most of what adulthood is), this three-step routine couldn’t be more straightforward or effective. You always knew you were a PYT (thanks, MJ), and now you can look and feel like one, too.

1. Cleanse

A face with traces of old makeup, dirt or any germs from your pillowcase is not going to glow as luminously as a clean one, so clean your canvas before you start painting. EVER’s Beauty Water Makeup Removing Cleanser is all about clean beauty and powerful results—it contains watermelon, turmeric and prebiotics, all of which act to remove impurities and tone your skin. Plus, using micellar water is about as easy as cleansing gets, perfect for the on-the-go woman who doesn’t have much time to spare for a 10-step morning routine. Simply use a clean cotton pad and swipe BEAUTY WATER all over your face. By the end, you’ll be feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.

2. Moisturize

In fact, not only do you want to hydrate your skin, but you also want to brighten it—these products are all about glowing from within, so you only want the best ingredients that will deliver long-term results. Enter the Glowtion Brightening Gel, which, like the rest of the Pretty Young Trio, is a product that packs a punch: apply a couple pumps of this to your face and you’ll immediately notice how it cools you down and goes from gel to liquid. It’ll make you appear and feel fresher. We think that’s the best way to feeling to start off the day with ­– who needs that morning coffee when your skincare routine can rejuvenate you?

3. Prime

And now for the big finish, for the truly perfect glow: you need to moisturize, apply some form of SPF for protection from the sun’s rays and prime your face before putting on any makeup. Lucky for you, EVER’s Canvas Priming Moisturizer does all three of those things in one step, so you can cut out extra time in your skincare routine (AKA allow yourself a couple extra minutes of shuteye before you really have to get up for work). It goes on as a gel, but dries to a powder finish, and has SPF 30 so you can say goodbye to that sticky sunscreen formula in your old products. Plus, it’s made of good-for-you ingredients, because EVER knows that you are what you put on your face.

And once you get home from work, kick off your shoes and sink into the couch, the thought of going through an arduous nighttime routine might sound like the last thing you want to do. EVER gets it, and that’s why the Order of Beauty for the PM is only two steps: cleanse your face with Beauty Water, and then apply some Glowtion to keep your pores hydrated—the watermelon rind extract, lentil extract and apple extract will be hard at work to keep your skin radiant while you drift off to sleep.

Adulting might be hard, but skincare doesn’t have to be. The Pretty Young Trio makes it easy for the skincare beginner, the busy bee and everyone in between to achieve a healthy, beautiful glow.
