A Quick Guide to Develop a College Girl Skincare Routine

Aug 10,2021

You may wonder how you will take care of your skin when you return to college. You won't have the huge bathroom you have at home, and if you're in a dorm room you may wonder how you'll maintain the college girl skincare routine you developed during your summer vacation. Fortunately, it's not as challenging as you might think.

Here is a good skincare routine for teenage girls just entering college, and it's a routine you can still use when you're in your early 20s in college.

4 Essential Things to Do

1. Use a cleanser.

It is quick and easy to use a cleanser since it doesn't require any steps. Choose an all-natural product that does not contain harsh chemicals, so you do not have to worry about irritating your skin.

2. Apply a moisturizer.

While you don't want to overdo it when the weather gets hot, you should keep your skin cool as possible so your SPF and moisturizer won't overpower it.

When you wear a moisturizer with SPF, make sure you choose one that's the right shade for you. Also, stay away from a heavy, foundation-like moisturizer. Choose a one-color, lightweight moisturizer.

When you apply your moisturizer, pat it into your skin for 20 minutes, then let it sink in for 10 minutes and wash it off. Throughout the school year, you need to keep your skin moisturized.

Weather will affect how much moisturizer you use:

When the environment becomes muggy and humid, your skin will probably become a little more sensitive, making it slightly more delicate.

If your skin is not dehydrated during a certain season, you may not require as much moisturizing.

Your skin is going to need some extra love when you will begin taking public transportation, as well as sweating profusely in the heat if you are involved in any sports or outdoor events. On especially sunny days, pair a face moisturizing product with an SPF 30 and a tinted moisturizer. Both help to keep your skin moisturized.

3. Remove makeup before bed.

Before you go to bed, wash your face. Do this whether or not you wore makeup during the day. However, it’s especially important if you wore makeup. Always wash off makeup before going to bed. This advice has probably been given to you a million times, but it’s worth remembering.

If you have delicate skin, just make sure you use a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate your skin.

Be careful to avoid using any cleansers that contain fragrance or glitter. Many young women who have a college girl skincare routine like to use a homemade face wash made with coconut oil or olive oil and a few drops of tea tree essential oil.

You can also use a cleanser to remove makeup without burning your face or irritating your skin. If you wear makeup, this method will be particularly helpful for pore-clogging and other skin issues.

Be sure to rinse your face thoroughly with water and use a cleanser if necessary. Don't overdo scrubbing your skin clean.

So remember: before going to bed, wash your face. Also, use a cleanser to remove any dirt or oils that accumulated during the day.

4. Exfoliating is simple and essential.

You should exfoliate twice a week for healthy skin, but make sure you use the right products. An exfoliant with a pH of 2.5 to 3.5. makes for the best exfoliation.
If you don't enjoy manually exfoliating daily, you can use exfoliating formulas to give your face a gentle scrub without getting too irritated.

2 Optional Things to Do

1. Try a facemask.

Occasionally wearing a facemask will work wonders for your skin. A plant-based mask containing antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and green tea provides the skin with great skincare benefits.

The substances in a high-quality facemask also help to combat signs of stress, such as furrows and fine lines, as well as adding tone and radiance to the skin.

2. Try a retinol cream or retinols.

While not essential, you may want to try retinol creams if your skin needs some extra help. If a small amount doesn’t help much, try higher concentrations (3% or higher).

The best time to use retinol creams and retinol is after cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen.

With retinol creams and retinol, new skin cells are encouraged to grow, and the skin is healthy and glowing. Even better, you can apply it to all types of skin. You will only need a small amount.

Smooth skin can be achieved by using a lower concentration and toning with retinol. The product is recommended at 2% or less to gently even out skin tone.

2 Important Things to Do

Besides your skincare routine, stay hydrated and eat healthily.

1. Drink plenty of water.

Water keeps your skin hydrated as well! You should always drink eight glasses of water a day. Drink bottled water, and add a splash to your tea or coffee every day. Stay hydrated!

2. Eat a healthy diet.

Diet directly also affects your skin. Water, vitamins E, C, calcium, and vitamin B5, fruits, and vegetables are key parts of a healthy diet.

Include foods you enjoy in your diet that also help your skin, such as dark chocolate (which is rich in antioxidants), avocados (which boosts skin health), and green vegetables (which are high in vitamins).

Finally, avoid sugary drinks, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables (preferably with skin-boosting properties).

Build as many of these beauty secrets into your skincare routine that you find work for you.
