[Back To School Skincare: College Edition]

by When Beauty on August 20, 2021

Whether you’re an incoming freshman year or already a veteran college student, getting yourself mentally and physically prepared for the new fall semester can be nerve-wracking. There will be nights when you’re craving to go to a spa with your girlfriends, but your bank account is screaming at you that you can’t afford it. Well, we got you. Here at When Beauty, we believe that taking some time to pamper yourself shouldn’t require you to spend all your monthly savings! 

Read below for a simple yet effective and inexpensive back-to-school skincare routine that’ll get you to look forward to taking some time to pamper yourself!

Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate

Start off with a gentle cleanser, then use an exfoliator that has really fine particles. By using an exfoliator at least once or twice a week, you’ll help stimulate collagen synthesis to improve your skin’s texture and skin tone. Also, it helps other skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin.

When Beauty Recommends: Our When Rose Coconut Gentle Exfoliating Scrub Mask, which contains Natural Coconut Powder gently exfoliates dull and flaky skin. It also has Natural French Rose Water & Extracts, and Calamine to help calm and soothe the skin.

Step 2: Toner

Toners help to restore your skin’s pH level, smooth and minimize the appearance of pores, soothe the skin, and aid in retaining moisture. It also preps the skin for your other skincare products. 

When Recommends: Our When Revivifying Toner Mist with Marine Complex is made with Ecklonia Cava (brown algae) Extract, Sea Water and Hydrolyzed Collagen to provide immediate hydration to the skin.    

Step 3: Serum

After applying a toner but before applying a moisturizer, adding a serum into your skincare is a great step to include for maximum skin benefits. Serums have a thinner consistency than moisturizers to help improve the absorption of the serum’s nutrients into the skin, but they have higher concentrations of active ingredients, which is why you’re able to see more visible results in a shorter amount of time.  

When Recommends: Our When Revivifying Pure Five Serum with SEANOL® contains only 5 clean essential ingredients and is fragrance-free, allergen-free. The key active ingredient SEANOL (Ecklonia cava extract, or brown algae extract, strengthened with patented biotechnology) is packed with marine polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants that help to prevent or reverse damage in your cells caused by aging, the environment, and your lifestyle. They also have strong anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties to help reduce redness. In addition to SEANOL, the When Revivifying Pure Five Serum is formulated with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, which are well-known to be great for reducing the signs of aging especially when used together. Use it once in the morning and once in the evening to energize and revivify dull skin.

Step 4: Facial Sheet Masks

Although you can go ahead and apply a moisturizer after a serum, we suggest putting on a sheet mask to lock in the products you’ve used so far and add some extra skin-boosting ingredients!  

When Recommends: Our When Premium Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask line, made with biodegradable natural sheet derived from fermented coconut water, which is gentle enough to be used by dermatologists to treat burn patients yet super hydrating as the sheet can hold fluids 100 times its own dry weight (10 times more than an average fabric or paper sheet mask) and has exception adhesion which help to deliver the serum’s nutrients effectively to skin. There are five different types of sheet masks to cater to your various skin’s needs.


Step 5: Body Sheet Masks (Optional but FUN!)

Next, extend the fun of sheet masks from the face to the body! Put them on along with your face masks or separately, whenever you want a mini spa at home treatment care from head to toe. When Youth Recharger for Neck Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask is formulated with pearl powder extract, colloidal platinum, and hydrolyzed collagen to provide radiance and elasticity to the skin around the neck for a smoother and younger-looking décolleté. We also have When Beauty and The Breast Bio-Cellulose Sheet Mask formulated with Volufiline, pomegranate extract, and hydrolyzed marine collagen to help nourish, firm up and brighten your chest area!

Even if you’ve never tried or do not like sheet masks, you will like these bio-cellulose sheet masks for the body!

Step 5: Anti-oxidant filled Moisturizer

Compared to generations in the past when fixing a skin problem after it appeared was the norm, (i.e.: getting fillers once wrinkles are already deep-set), millennials and Generation Zers are more focused on preventative skincare. Starting as early as your 20s, dermatologists recommend using skincare with antioxidants and other vital ingredients that aid in delaying the aging process.

When Recommends: When Revivifying Ultimate Cream with SEANOL®! This clinically proven anti-aging cream has a light and silky texture that contains SEANOL (the stronger patented form of Ecklonia Cava extract), mango and cocoa seed butter, and macadamia seed oil. These ingredients provide rich and vital moisturizing nutrients for the skin and help reduce wrinkles and brighten skin tone.

The Takeaway

Be prepared with essential skincare products that’ll get you through this school year! Your skin and mental well-being will thank you for it in the long run.
