Skincare Saviors for Midterm Season

Skincare Saviors for Midterm Season

It's easy to let midterm season overwhelm you.  One minute, you think you have your life together, and the next minute you're bombarded with an onslaught of paper deadlines and exam dates. Worst of all, lack of sleep and general stress can take a huge toll on your skin. Thankfully, a good skin-care routine can save the day. Whether you're struggling with stress-induced breakouts or dark circles from sleep deprivation, here are some ultra effective skincare products to get you're skin through these next few weeks.


Soap & Glory Puffy Eye Attack

Not only is this eye cream super moisturizing, but its cooling gel formula helps combat dark circles. Use this every morning and night if you want to look like you got a full eight hours of sleep (despite only getting, like, three). Image via here.

Pacifica Hot Vegan 

This face mask is perfect for clearing up stressed out, congested skin. After a few days of using this, I really notice a difference in the severity of my breakouts and the evenness of my skin tone. And the fact that it's cruelty free is an added bonus! Image via here.

100% Pure Argan Oil 

This is a skincare staple that should definitely not be ignored during midterms, especially as the fall weather harshens. Moisturizing is the key to combatting tired, dull skin. I like argan oil because it's light and doesn't clog pores, unlike other facial oils. Besides using it as a moisturizer, try mixing a few drops with your foundation to give your skin a dewey glow.

Ole Henriksen Moment of Truth 2-in-1 Polishing Sugar Mask

 

This mask saved my life. That may sound dramatic, but it's one of the only products I own that gives my skin immediate results whenever it needs a pick-me-up. After just one use, your skin will be noticeably brighter and softer. It even minimizes pores and lessens the appearance of breakouts. The best part? It only takes five minutes.  Image via here.
