It's officially time to start the back-to-school shopping, which is always a favorite at my house. I love the fresh-start of Fall, and the excitement that builds around new teachers, the latest clothes, and of course... school supplies!
But one thing I get asked about a lot is skincare for teens and 20-somethings, who are headed back to school as well. My theory is that skincare for you should be affordable, effective and fresh- meaning as natural as possible so that your young healthy skin takes the spotlight.
So while you are at Target stocking up for the semester- throw a few of these goodies in your cart too. Your skin (and your wallet) will thank me. Here are my recommendations:
- Simple Micellar Wipes- (Cartwheel 5% savings thru 8/22) These are the newest addition to the Micellar line, and I love them! They are perfect to keep in a gym bag or locker for post workouts. The wipes remove makeup and buildup without drying the skin, leaving the skin refreshed. And they even take off eye makeup without irritating!
- Simple Micellar Water- (Cartwheel 5% savings thru 8/22) Along the same line as the wipes, the Micellar Water takes off the 'day' and leaves skin squeaky clean. It is wonderful for even sensitive skin, and doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, dyes, or perfumes. I've talked about my love for this product before, so if you want more info check that out here.
- St Ives Fresh Skin Scrub- I firmly believe that good skin starts with regular exfoliation. This is my favorite scrub that St Ives makes because it has light fresh scent, and the natural ingredients like Walnut, Apricot, and Cornmeal go to work scrubbing away dull, dead skin. It's effective but gentle enough to use multiple times a week. And for those dealing with breakouts, the Blemish scrub is ideal for you.
Let me know if you have any fresh-faced favorites I should know about in the comments below.
