Stressed Sensitive Skin Solutions

Finals are upon college students. Long all-nighters, cramming chem and Cheetos. Sucking down watery coffee accompanied by white sugar and Krispy Kreme. It’s not a good look and our skin is the first to show signs of unbalance. For all my educated girlies out there, I feel your struggle. Here are a few suggestions to make this stressful time a bit more manageable:

Internal health is the foundation of your mental health and skin. You can’t do well in English 201 if your tummy is upset with excess sugar and salt. The solution, you may ask? Pique’s Sun Goddess Matcha Green Tea. This little packet will support you throughout the mental and stress breakouts. Loaded with catechins to help relieve sugar and hunger cravings, chlorophyll to promote skin luminosity, and L-theanine for those zen vibes. Made with 100% organic ceremonial grade matcha from Japan, the caffeine in this baby will keep you stabilized as you finish up those stats problems. Drink it hot or cold; I prefer hot with a bit of honey, and you’ll feel pampered even though you’re in sweats. The best part: your skin will receive benefits as you sip, so drink up!

Breaks are essential to avoid burnout and crashing during finals weeks. Here’s a little suggestion for skin care to reset your face and brain.

First step: wash with Epionce’s fan fav: Lytic Gel Cleanser. This cleanser will remove oils, dirt, and traces of that stubborn inner eyeliner from when you went out to the club. Hey — it happens. With the refreshing and calming scent of herbs, you’ll get a little aromatherapy as you cleanse. Crafted with methanol, orange fruit extract, date fruit extract, and lavender: what’s not to love?

Second step: is a face mask so you can take a breather. Faus Haus’ The Relief Worker, works while you relax. This fragrance-free mask is perfect for stressed and sensitive skin that needs relief and unclogging. It’s not too tightening so you can move your face as you FaceTime your bestie to catch up on some gossip. When you wash your face, it will feel soft and smooth. No drying or tight skin around here, babe.

Third step: get out of those sweats and hoodie you’ve been in for days. Head to the shower with your Harry Styles playlist and The Multi-Tasker Do-It-All Cleansing Lotion. This wash does it all, including being a shaving cream. Leave your body soft, and your pits and legs even softer. There’s no scent so perfect for those of us who struggle with heavy scents. Skin-loving ingredients like Squalane, Grapeseed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, and Vegetable Glycerin are in this wash. Perfect for skin that is dehydrated from the winter winds and space heaters.

Fourth Step: is to stay where you’re at! Before you step out of the shower slather on The Everybody: 20% AHA Exfoliating Body Lotion, onto damp skin This lotion helps to smooth rough and dry skin with AHA, aka Glycolic Acid. Plus Vitamin C and cholesterol penetrate your skin for that baby butt glow. No fragrance here. Let your skin air dry and proceed to the next step.

Fifth Step: is skincare to fight back against breakouts. Epionce’s Lytic Tx aids in clearing out your pores while improving the look of skin texture. Apply on clean skin and wait 5 minutes for any supplemental products. This is a boost for any products you apply on top.

I recommend Renewal Lite Facial Lotion. This is Epionce’s famous Renewal Facial Lotion for oily skin folks. This lotion makes my skin feel hydrated and taken care of, all after one use!

Sixth and final step: drink up again! This time with GnuSanté’s Ra.D8 Collagen Sparkling Tea. Black tea base and no caffeine so you can drink this before bed! Infused carotenoids, collagen, elastin, and Omega 3,6,7,9 to help hydration intake. My personal favorite is Blueberry Vanilla, which has a hint of a floral taste. This stellar drink is perfect to relax with the mind, body, and skin. Good luck with your finals, you smart cookies!
