Back-to-School Beauty On the Fly

Back-to-School Beauty On the Fly

Heading back to campus soon? Then you're probably busy stocking up on school supplies, beauty products, and dorm duds. But leaving home for a semester doesn't mean you can’t look and feel your best. Luckily, stocking up on versatile and time-saving beauty supplies doesn't have to break the bank! Here are our suggestions for semester-start must-haves!


Between pulling all-nighters to study and trying to maintain a social life, let's face it, keeping up with a skincare regimen probably isn’t going to make it into your everyday routine. Especially if you live in a dorm with a communal bathroom, where sink space is a rare commodity. Invest in makeup wipes for those nights when you're already lying cozy in bed by the time you realize you didn’t wash your face. These wipes will come in handy and help keep those skin breakouts at bay.

Face Time

Find some time for self-care or have a spa night with friends, and make your own DIY facial mask to pamper and cleanse your skin. Depending on your skin type and what you have on-hand, there are all kinds of natural mask recipes you can find and whip up in the comfort of your dorm room or apartment. For example, some plain yogurt, avocado, and honey can go a long way in hydrating your skin and reduce stress-related breakouts!

Dry Clean Only

On those mornings when you just can't bring yourself to wash, dry, and style your hair before trekking off to your first class, dry shampoo is your best friend. A few sprays of dry shampoo can help to absorb natural oils in your roots and completely refresh your hairstyle without spending an hour on it. Keep a can in your dorm room to extend time between washes. Not only is it a timesaver, but it's good for your hair to have a break from daily shampooing and blow-drying.

These beauty products will not only help your skin, hair, and nails look their best this coming school year, but they’ll save you some valuable time in your beauty routine!
