This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Northwestern chapter.


Here at Northwestern, we are no strangers to the pressures of life on campus. The quarter system and its cycle of frequent exams and major assignments coupled with the other burdens that come with college can take a toll. And, with so much on our plates, it’s easy to prioritize schoolwork over self-care. However, late night study sessions and a lack of sleep can manifest physically on our skin, leading to another source of stress that we don’t need. 

Luckily, Estée Lauder’s new Nutritious skincare line is making it easy for Northwestern students to get glowing skin – and glowing grades – because of how simple but effective the products are. After hours of homework, the last thing I want to do is walk through a multi-step skincare routine. But with Estée Lauder’s Nutritious line, it allows me to do some self-care quickly, so I can get back to my schoolwork.

Check out the products that make skincare skimple while dealing with stress throughout the quarter system at NU!

The 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser

This product is directed towards “grumpy skin” – which you might have after a long semester – causing your skin to lose its glow. Working as a weekly face mask or a daily cleanser, this nutrient-rich product leaves my skin feeling so clean, as it removes any excess oil and impurities while minimizing the look of my pores.

When combatting stress breakouts, I only want to use products I can trust. And, because the cleanser is non-comedogenic and safe for sensitive skin, I know that my skin is in good hands with this product.

This product leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. As the seasons shift here in Evanston, my skin has been adjusting to the new climate. With this nutrient-rich, hydrating créme, I know that I’m moisturizing my skin without adding excess oil, while it calms, hydrates, and strengthens my skin barrier. After using this product, my skin feels smoother and appears much more hydrated. 

Estée Lauder’s Nutritious skincare line makes my nighttime routine so much simpler while still giving me the results I need. Whether I’ve spent the day studying or spending time with friends, at night, I can rest easy knowing I’m taking care of my skin with Estée Lauder.
