Looking to de-stress and impress with your skincare routine? Look no further.

Being a college student can be hard enough, and the last thing we want is clogged pores and breakouts. Follow this simple five-step routine to liven up your face and prevent skin issues.

Step One: Remove makeup and dirt. Use a makeup remover wipe or another remover to get rid of the grit and grime sitting on your skin.

Step 2: Wash your face! As simple as that sounds, you can even do it in the shower to save time.

Step 3: Tone your face. Use a simple toner or micellular water to deep clean and remove the day off your face.

Step 4: Moisturize your skin. It’s getting colder out so don’t skip this step. Prevent breaking and drying of your skin by doing this daily.

Step 5: Treat and Pamper. Use acne gels and spot treats as needed. Don’t forget to treat yourself with a face mask every now and then!

It’s as easy as remove, wash, tone, moisturize and treat/pamper. Skincare is a simple way to take care of yourself and your skin all year round.
