7 Skincare Habits All College Girls Need to Have

College is that time in our lives when we have very little or no free time at all, we’re constantly under pressure, and we don’t put the focus on our health. With all the studying, and homework, and college academic writing, college girls tend to neglect taking care of themselves which can leave some serious consequences. The same goes for our skin which is one of the most important things we should be nurturing.

Skincare for college girls is extremely important since it needs to start as soon as possible in our lives. That is why below, you’ll find a skincare guide for you and your college friends to follow.

 Let’s break it down and see what you need to pay attention to.

1. Cleansing

The most important thing, when it comes to skincare, is to always keep it clean.

You can’t use any other products unless you’ve cleaned your skin first.

Make sure you choose a cleanser that has the following characteristics:

  • gentle on your skin
  • isn’t causing it to be dry
  • isn’t irritating it
  • is made of natural ingredients
  • is appropriate for your skin type

The cleanser you choose needs to be able to keep your skin clean and remove any dirt, but it shouldn’t burn your face or cause it to be dry.

Be careful when choosing the product for cleaning your skin and do it at least once in the morning and once before you go to bed.

2. Moisturizing

Your skin needs help to stay elastic and healthy. Regardless of your skin type, you need to use a proper moisturizer every day.

Therefore, make sure you analyze your skin type and find a moisturizer that fits it perfectly.

Of course, you need to have a separate moisturizer for:

  • your face
  • your body

Keep your skin soft, elastic, and gentle and don’t ever let it dry.

3. Sun Protection

When we’re young, we feel like sunbathing is a lovely activity that can’t harm our skin in any possible way. College girls tend to lay under the open sky and sunbathe for hours, without using any sun protection.

This is both dangerous and damaging for your skin.

Regardless of your skin pigment, and whether you get tan fast and easy not, you always need to use sunscreen.

The reasons are numerous:

  • the sun can burn your skin and cause dryness
  • it causes skin freckles when you get older
  • it can cause skin cancer

Your skin is your biggest organ and it needs your help to stay healthy. Use sunscreen every time you step outside on a hot day and protect your entire body and your face.

4. Peeling

Skin peeling is a great way to refresh our skin, revive it, and give it a breath of fresh air.

On the surface of your entire body, you’ve got dead skin cells that need to be removed to make room for new ones. Skin peeling does exactly that.

You’ve got two options when it comes to skin peeling:

  • make your own
  • buy a skin peeling product

If you want to keep things natural and make your skin peeling, you can do it according to your skin type, and  using a suitable combination of some of the natural ingredient such as:

  • cucumber pulp
  • lemon juice
  • sugar
  • egg whites
  • avocado
  • baking soda
  • yogurt

You can find a recipe for the DIY skin peeling online and create a peeling fit for your skin.

You should do a full body and face peeling once a week to keep your skin young and fresh.

5. Makeup Removal

Before we switch to talking about removing your makeup, a part of your daily skincare routine is also choosing which make up to use, and how much. 

If you wear too much make up every day, your skin can be irritated and clogged. This is especially the case with powder, concealer or foundation.

Therefore, you need to:

  • avoid covering your entire face with a lot of skin every day
  • use gentle daily makeup 
  • buy quality makeup products 

In addition to making sure you’re not making your facial skin suffer under all that makeup, you need to make sure you remove your make up properly.

You can do it with your face cleanser or buy a separate makeup removal product. Whatever you choose, make sure you never go to bed with makeup on.

6. Food & Hydration

Your skincare doesn’t just come from the outside.

What you eat and drink during the day will make a huge impact on your skin and a significant difference in its care.

To keep your skin elastic and healthy, you need to:

  • drink at least 2 liters of water every day
  • eat a balanced diet
  • eat foods such as fish, carrots, avocados, walnuts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds
  • avoid alcohol and cigarettes 

Give your skin the food it needs to stay nurtured, or you’ll end up with significant skincare problems.

7. Consistency

Finally, there’s one last thing you need to do to wrap this story up. You need to make sure you stay consistent in your skincare habits.

That means that all of the above skincare advice need to become part of your daily routine:

  • take care of your skin every  day
  • take your skin products with you if you travel
  • don’t skip your skincare routine
  • stay consistent 

You need to understand that skincare is a part of your overall health care plan which is why you should never skip it.

Skin Care Is Paramount for Your Skin Health

Even though you’re at college, and have a ton of obligations and tasks you need to do, you need to put your health first. Therefore, find the time to take care of yourself and your skin and make no excuses.

The advice above can help you create your skincare routine. All you have to do is follow it and keep your skin healthy for the long run.
