Classes are almost back in session! As you start making your list for back to school shopping, don’t forget to add a few must-have beauty buys to your Target haul. (Because being prepared means more than just picking up a set of fresh notebooks.) Ahead, find six skin-care products you’ll want to have on hand — in your dorm or in your backpack — to score an A in your back-to-school beauty routine.
Makeup wipes? Check! Moisturizer? Check! Acne Patches? Check!
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #1: Makeup Wipes
Makeup wipes are always handy to have on deck for makeup emergencies — or when you can’t muster up enough energy to climb out of bed to wash your face. These cleansing towelettes by La Roche-Posay are formulated to clarify oily skin by removing dirt, oil and pollution from its surface, while still being gentle and safe for sensitive skin types. Buy an extra pack to throw them in your school bag for easy cleansing on the go or at the gym.
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #2: Micellar Water
A good skin-care routine starts with cleansing. Garnier SkinActive Cleansing Micellar Water removes makeup and dirt from the skin’s surface so well, you’re going to want to stock up for the semester, so you never run out. Just apply the product to a cotton pad or reusable face cloth, swipe and you’re makeup — including waterproof eye products — will melt off.
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #3: Moisturizer
Keeping your skin moisturized it very important — especially as fall rolls in and the temperatures start to dip. Opt for a moisturizer that provides long-lasting hydration and broad-spectrum SPF protection while you’re walking to and from class. The CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion contains SPF 30 and is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores.
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #4: Hyaluronic Serum
Give your skin a dose of intense hydration with just a few drops of the L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum. It’s made with 1.5 percent pure hyaluronic acid and absorbs quickly — perfect for busy students looking to complete their skin-care routine in ten minutes or less.
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #5: Acne Patches
Don’t let breakouts get you down on the first week of school. Acne patches are a fast and easy way to stop breakouts in their tracks. Apply a pimple patch, like Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch, and wait for the hydrocolloid acne stickers to start working on the breakout overnight. Problem solved!
Back-to-School Beauty Must-Have #6: Concealer
When late-night study sessions — or movie marathons — get the best of you, under-eye concealer is a must. The Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles Concealer instantly helps cover discoloration and diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness with its formula infused with goji berry and haloxyl, an effective blood circulation booster.
