Get Your Moisture Balance Right

Striking the perfect moisture balance is like finding the ideal rhythm for a dance – it requires harmony, understanding, and a bit of practice. Rather than impulsively grabbing that cleanser proclaiming blemish-fighting wonders, pause and evaluate your skin’s natural moisture levels. If your skin naturally leans toward the dry side, such cleansers can exacerbate the issue by upsetting the skin’s pH balance. Instead, opt for a cleanser enriched with minerals that nourish your skin without stripping it of its essential oils.

Post-cleansing, there’s a plethora of options to help you maintain that hydrated look, including face moisturizers, premium natural oils like shea or cocoa butter, hydrating serums, or toners.

But the life of a college student is always busy, and sometimes you need to make adjustments on the fly. Feeling a bit dry while rushing to that next lecture? A quick spritz of facial mist can offer a quick hydration boost. That midday shine have you self-conscious? Compact powders and oil-absorbing sheets are your trusty sidekicks to combat that excess sheen.

But remember, skincare doesn’t end at your jawline. Your entire body craves moisture, too. Embrace body moisturizers or oils. Not only will they ensure you’re glowing at every college event, but a little self-pampering can also be a great stress-buster amid assignments and exams.

Celebrate Your Youthful Glow

As you venture into another exhilarating college year, remember to embrace the vibrancy of your youth. These are the golden years when your natural beauty shines brightest, and your choices should amplify this innate radiance.

For daily makeup, consider switching to a BB cream—a lighter alternative to full coverage foundations. Not only does it even out your skin, but it also lets the natural glow of your skin shine through. Enriched with hydrating and soothing ingredients, a BB cream is a multipurpose marvel, safeguarding your skin from environmental aggressors the sun’s rays.

Of course, there’s no denying the power of a good foundation and concealer duo in a pinch, especially to look refreshed post those all-nighter mornings from studying or a fun night out. Overall though, in college, let your choices mirror your youthful glow, because natural beauty, especially now, is your best accessory.

Zap Your Way to Smooth, Hairless Skin

From campus gatherings and homecoming games, to house parties and clubs, college students want to look their smoothest when the social lights shine the brightest. But the traditional paths to that smooth, hairless look—like shaving, waxing or epilating—can be both time-consuming and a tad brutal on the skin. Which is why investing in a personal laser hair remover can be a game-changer.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices aren’t just about longer-lasting results compared to your razor. They’re often way more skin-friendly, especially when you stack them up against waxing or epilating. Take the Ulike Sapphire Air 3, for instance. The first IPL device to bring sapphire ice-cooling tech to North America, the Air 3 keeps your skin at a comfy 65 degrees Fahrenheit even after 10 minutes of use. Add to that, its targeted pulses halt hair growth in its tracks. With regular use it tackles those stubborn hair issues right at their roots so you can look your best, smoothest self in class or any back to school party.

To sweeten the pot, Ulike is now looking for college students and is now looking for new partnerships for reviews and product testing. If you’ve ever been curious about IPL, now’s a pretty sweet time to give it a go!

Breakouts be Gone

Whether we like it or not, pimples are a part of life. And whether it’s genetics, the stress of exams, late nights out with friends or some combination of any of the above, they can pop up to ruin your day, especially with those teenage hormones still not so far in the rearview mirror.

Which is why it’s always a good idea to keep some pimple patches at the ready. Pimple patches are true heroes when it comes to swift and effective zit management. Tailored for the college lifestyle, these tiny transparent miracles not only discreetly cover up any unwelcome spots but also work hard to heal them faster, making them less noticeable. For those days you’re rushing from a lecture to a social gathering or cute date, they can be a real lifesaver.

Exfoliate and Rejuvenate

By removing old skin cells, regular exfoliation from a trusty scrub not only paves the way for smoother, radiant skin but also unclogs pores, reducing those unwelcome pimple surprises. 

But the pampering doesn’t stop there. After scrubbing, nourish your newly “freed” skin with a mask tailored to your needs. Battling oiliness or pesky pimples? A clay mask has your back. Feeling a touch dry or dull? Hydrating masks are here to the rescue. And, for that finishing touch, swipe on some toner or rose water to restore balance.

Just a little heads up: limit your scrub sessions to once a week at most. Too much of a good thing can actually hurt your skin.
