Dorm Room Essential Skincare
Just because you're hitting the books doesn't mean your skincare has to take a hit! All you need are a few dorm room essentials to keep your skin glowing and healthy during a busy school year.
Let's begin with cleansing, the first and very important step in any skincare routine. The La Roche-Posay® Effaclar Cleansing Towelettes ($10, 25 count) are pre-moistened with Lipo- Hydroxy Acid and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water. These oil-free wipes are the perfect way to cleanse your skin morning and night. They are also great to use after sports events, the gym, or for easy makeup removal.
Stayed up late studying? Colorescience® Total Eye™ 3 in 1 Renewal Therapy ($69, 0.23 fl oz) will give you the appearance of a full night's rest. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides, and SPF, those dark circles and puffiness will instantly disappear, giving your eyes a bright and refreshed look. Not only does Total Eye 3 in 1 Renewal Therapy conceal those bags, but it also gives your skin a treatment with long-lasting effects.
Another great product to keep you refreshed throughout the day is the skinfo® Antioxidant Mist ($30, 8 fl oz). Powered by witch hazel, this mist keeps your skin soft, soothed, and protected. Its amazing scent of chamomile will give a boost to brighten tired skin. Carry around with you and spritz throughout the day for a refreshing pick me up in between classes and activities.
With busy schedules and stress, it is easy to forget to give your skin the proper hydration that it needs. Hyaluronic acid provides so many benefits to your skin by plumping and reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. It is important to be proactive and address aging concerns such as these as early as your 20's!
skinfo® Hydrage ($74, 1 fl oz), a hyaluronic acid serum, is a company favorite. Just 2-3 drops of this serum on clean skin are enough to keep your skin bright, supple and glowing.
Finally, the most important step in skincare is an SPF high in zinc oxide. The Colorescience® Sunforgettable® Brush ($65, 0.21 oz) is a convenient way to stay protected throughout the day. The Sunforgettable® Brush protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays, infrared damage, and blue light from computers and phones. Application of this mineral sunscreen is easy as it is a powder formula and can be quickly dusted on. The Sunforgettable® Brush is packed with hyaluronic acid to shield the skin from sun damage and keep it from becoming dehydrated.
