Back to school season means a busier schedule and less free time for students everywhere. Despite the lack of time you may have on your hands, self-care is still vital and something you can fit into your hectic lifestyle. Today, we’re going to break down some less time-consuming, yet still effective, skincare routines.
Back to the Basics
Have an 8am class this semester? Can you just not seem to wake up in time to get an extensive skincare routine done without being late? The truth is, sometimes your skin needs a break from a sizable skincare routine, and just wants you to strip it back down to the basics. All you really need to keep your skin happy and healthy is a cleanser, a moisturizer, and an SPF. Cleanser is essential in any skincare routine, and helps your skin stay clean and fresh.
Our Daily Detox Gel Facial Cleanser is a lightweight cleanser that removes any excess oil without dehydrating the skin. It’s the perfect cleanser for a busy student with sensitive skin.
Moisturizing is so important, especially with summer coming to a close and the colder months looming over us. Neptune Face Cream is a fluffy, airy face cream with Shea Butter and Squalane to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. We formulated this moisturizer to feel light on the skin, but still give you the hydration your skin needs.
An SPF is essential at all times of the year. There are endless benefits to making SPF a regular part of your skincare routine; protection against sunburn, aging, and skin cancer just to name a few. Though it may not feel necessary on a cloudy or cold day, the sun is strong and your skin will thank you for that extra layer of protection.
Your Simple Nighttime Skincare Routine
Skincare is a great way to destress and decompress after a long, stressful day at school or work. You can keep it basic while also giving your skin what it needs and maintaining a self-care routine that’s right for you.
Adding in one or two extra steps into your usual cleansing and moisturizing routine can make all the difference in your skin’s health as well as your mental health. One of the best ways to incorporate a little something extra into your routine that’s not too time-consuming is a face mask. You only have to dedicate one or two days out of the week to this simple step, and can help you unwind before you get some shut-eye.
You don’t have to give up on your skincare routine just because your schedule has become more hectic. Taking an extra 5-10 minutes each morning and night to practice self-care will leave you and your skin feeling so much better. You deserve to make time for yourself, and feel confident in yourself.
