You Definitely Would’ve Kept These Skin-Care Picks in Your High School Locker
Remember high school? Throwback to when our only concerns consisted of passing our 4th period history exam, finding non-awkward ways to spark casual conversation with our crush and, of course, our teenage skin. For some of us, these were the times when our skin could have seriously benefitted from a personalized skin-care routine, while others of us were lucky enough to have blissfully clear complexions back then. Regardless, we’ve learned a thing or two about skin care since, which made us think it would be fun to imagine which back to school beauty products we would have stored in our lockers if we knew then what we know now. Read on and see if you agree.
Back when we were just beginning to dabble in makeup, the NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil would have been the perfect lightweight makeup for everyday use. With the ability to even out your skin tone, this Tinted Skin Veil hydrates and conceals the skin without looking too overdone for a regular day at school (or work nowadays).
On the nights where you didn’t get enough sleep, but wanted to fake the appearance of a full eight hours, the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind could’ve been your savior. It provides the best coverage for dark circles and would’ve made your skin appear radiant and refreshed with just one swipe.
Remember when you were in the middle of class drifting in and out of sleep because you were up too late on the phone with your best friend the night before? If only you had the Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water in your locker. Infused with antioxidants and 15 rare minerals that work against environmental aggressors, a spritz of this face mist would’ve been great to keep you awake and freshen you up in between periods.
Part makeup remover, part gentle cleanser, these CeraVe wipes would have been the ultimate lifesaver on the days we had gym or volleyball practice after school.
Waking up with a new breakout was in high school was frustrating enough on a regular day, let alone when it happened during an important one like prom or senior photos. If only you knew about the Kiehl’s Acne Spot Treatment back then, you undoubtedly would’ve kept one in your locker, your bookbag, your pencil bag and literally any other bag that you took with you throughout the day.
If we knew then what we know now, we would have ditched the body sprays and opted for an eau de parfum rollerball. Both convenient and easy, the Lancôme La Vie est Belle smells of sweet floral notes without being too overpowering.
