As we say goodbye to the hot days of summer and hello to the chilly days of fall, we must also say hello to a new skincare routine. The change in the weather means a change for our skin and warrants swapping products out for more cold weather friendly options. Just like you wouldn’t wear a bikini in January, your beauty ritual needs to adapt to the harsher, drier weather.
These are some products that can be easily added into any girl’s current routine. Many of these products are drugstore finds that are well-suited to a college budget. Some are easily purchased on campus at stores like Clinique in the MU Bookstore (who doesn’t love student charge!?). These will definitely help you strut around campus with glowing skin and make it through even the coldest days of a Missouri winter.
Facial Wash: Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula
Face Moisturizer: CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM
Body Lotion: NIVEA Smooth Sensation Lotion
Foundation: Garnier Skin Renew Skin Perfector B.B. Cream
Lip Treatment: H2O Plus Lip Mender
Although these products can work wonders, there also are some changes you can make to your daily life to keep yourself looking magnificent well after summer departs.
Warmer weather encourages exercise and a high-level fluid intake, both critical in maintaining radiant skin. Hit up MizzouRec with your friends, and drink plenty of water to encourage circulation and overall good health.
While eating fruits and vegetables isn’t always easy in college, they’re key to great skin. Try and sneak them into your diet so you can get the vitamins you need.
And although it’s super tempting to sit in a scalding shower all winter, it’ll dry your skin out faster than warm water. Try and limit your time under the spout and reap the skin benefits.
From affordable beauty products to simple tips to implement in your daily life, you can make your skin look smooth, soft and blemish-free all the way through winter.
