Committing to a regular skincare routine during your college years might feel impossible because your schedule is already packed. In reality, this is actually the best possible time to develop good habits. If you’re struggling to come up with a skincare routine that you’ll actually stick to, these five steps are a good place to start.
Keep Things Simple
There’s no need to set up a complicated ten-product skincare routine when you’re still a newbie. Stick to the basics, such as cleansing and moisturizing your face every day and washing the makeup off before going to sleep.
Everything in One Place
Pick a designated place in your dorm where you’ll keep all your skincare products—after all, your room is too small to have them scattered around.
If you’re struggling to set aside some time for your skincare routine, consider multitasking and doing it in the shower. It’s less likely you’ll skip it this way because you’ll associate showers with skincare.
Before & After
Taking before and after photos can be a great motivational tool because you’ll be inspired to keep going after seeing how much clearer and healthier your skin looks.
If you’re skipping your skincare routine simply because you’re forgetful, set the alarm on your phone that will remind you it’s time to get it done.
