It’s hard to believe that we’re already in August! We love this time of year because it kicks off back-to-school season. It doesn’t matter if you’re in high school or college, there are a few products you need to have on-hand to stay cool, calm, and collected throughout the day. Here’s our list of back-to-school beauty essentials you should pack along with your pens, pencils, and notebooks!
For an easy cool-down during the day, nothing quite hits the spot like a facial mist. Pack it in your purse or your backpack for an afternoon pick-me-up. Facial mists come in a variety of uplifting and invigorating scents, like citrus, peppermint, cucumber, aloe, and coconut. Do you find yourself suffering from the post-lunchtime slump? A facial mist is a perfect way to rehydrate your skin and wake yourself up with something that is both cooling and smells great.
If you’re prone to dry lips, few things are more uncomfortable than being stuck at school without a lip balm. Luckily there are literally hundreds of lip balms to choose from so you’ll never be without one. Want something with shimmer? That’s out there. Looking for a medicated balm with SPF? That’s available too. Just want something that smells like strawberries? You can buy that. There’s truly a lip balm for everyone, so head down to the drugstore and buy a few!
It doesn’t matter if you’re in elementary school or college, other people are germy. Keeping hand sanitizer with you at all times is a great way to keep bacteria at bay. Use it after the bathroom, before a meal, and throughout the day to keep your hands clean. Hand sanitizers come in all sorts of scents and you can even buy keychains to attach them to your bag. Staying hygienic has never been easier!
Moisturizer With SPF
Even in the wintertime, sun protection is important if you want to keep your skin healthy. Buying a moisturizer or tinted moisturizer with added SPF is an easy way to make sure you get that coverage on your face. Dozens of brands make lightweight, non-sticky formulations that are comfortable to wear underneath makeup or on their own. If you choose a tinted moisturizer with SPF, you can use that for coverage and just skip foundation altogether.
Face and Body Wipes
Sometimes during the day things get sweaty. If you’re wearing makeup all day, sweat can lead to oil buildup, which can eventually lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Keep face wipes on hand so you can wipe foundation, powder, and other makeup off your face and let your skin breathe. Body wipes are a great way to keep the rest of body clean and refreshed when you don’t have the opportunity to jump in the shower.
When it comes to keeping your hair looking fresh and volumized, there’s no better fail-safe product than good old dry shampoo. It comes it all different sizes and scents, with options for dark hair, blonde hair, curly hair, colored hair, and just about any other type of hair you can think of. Dry shampoo is the perfect way to deal with oily hair while also giving it a quick boost of volume and texture. Stash a bottle in your purse, locker, backpack, car, or wherever is most handy so you can slay all day long.
