As college students, we hardly have enough time to sleep let alone take care of our skin like we should. It’s understandable that we all skip a step every once in awhile, but in order to get that smooth skin we all want, it’s important to follow these five steps while in college!
1. Take off your makeup before bed
We have all had those nights that we just simply don’t have the strength to lift our head off our pillow. However, this means that your carefully applied foundation and other makeup is now sitting on your pores along with all the dirt that that you have accumulated that day. Not good.
2. Clean your makeup brushes
It is easy to neglect this process, but think of your makeup brushes as paintbrushes; if you don’t clean them from time to time, then the product will build up and blend the colors together. Not to mention that if you are already prone to acne, then not cleaning your makeup brushes can add to your breakouts.
3. “Treat yo self” to face masks
4. Apply face sunscreen
Sunscreen is not just for a day at the beach; it’s important to shield your face from those harmful UV rays every single day – and don’t forget to reapply! My tip would be to find a moisturizer with built in SPF and slather it on before applying your foundation.
5. Drink lots of water
It seems simple, but this easy task is the most important to keeping your body and skin happy. Carry a water bottle with you all day and make it your goal to have to refill it as much as possible. There are so many cute water bottles to choose from too!
Remember to take care of yourselves, collegiettes!
