This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

We aren’t always as kind to our skin as we should be. Between forgetting to cleanse after an extra sweaty gym session, not drinking enough water, and putting our bodies through all the work of college life, it doesn’t come as a surprise that pimples, dullness, dryness and more can pop up during the semester.

Thankfully, there are a few products on the market to help nourish your skin (and hair, body and soul too, if you want). The greatest recommendation as of late comes from our favorite Instagram influencers! Her Campus and Alba Botanica® joined forces to launch an impactful program with them about these earth-friendly beauty products. We’re showing how women every day can Do Good, Do Beautiful with their skincare routine. So, with feeds flooded with all the wonders of this regimen, here’s what you need to know about these skin-loving products.

The Alba Botanica® brand has been iconic since 1979 when they set up with a simple mission to Do Beautiful. That means their whole line is made of botanically-based, 100 percent vegetarian personal care products that do beautiful for you, your friends, people, animals and the earth as a whole.



Rise and shine ☀️ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best thing is waking up extra early on Sundays to relax, rejuvenate and catch up on self care. I’m currently reading scripture in a face mask ? . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My skin has been suffering seasonal breakouts from getting too much sun exposure and the weather changing in to fall. I’ve been using the @AlbaBotanica #Acnedote line and it’s been helping a lot! Especially the scrub—which fun fact, has ground walnut shells instead of the plastic microbeads that so many scrubs are usually have in them. Today on the blog I’m sharing my anti-acne skincare routine for anyone that also struggles with seasonal body breakouts too. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tomorrow I’m going to be posting a giveaway for a bunch of Alba Botanica goodies, come back and enter! For clean and “better for you” skincare, #albabotanica is one of my go-to’s. I love how they’re cruelty-free and environmentally conscious. ? . ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sponsored #albabotanicaglow #influencehercollective

What are the Alba Botanica® products that influencers are loving right now? Anything and everything from the acnedote™ collection, ranging from pimple patches to a face and body scrub. Geared towards calming irritating pimples and banishing breakouts, there’s nothing better for faster healing.

Depending on your need, there’s a product that offers a solution: The clear peeling gel dries up blemishes, the oil control lotion helps you achieve a visibly clearer complexion. And while acnedote™ may be trending at the moment, Alba Botanica® has a ton more available whether you’re trying to prevent sun damage or address your oily skin.

The best part is that these products are free from sulfates, parabens, artificial colors and all the other things you want to avoid putting on your skin. Better-for-you products means better results when you’re treating acne – and it feels good to know that what you’re using in your daily routine isn’t leaving a huge environmental footprint either.
