Updated College Skin Care Routine

I don't know if I can speak on behalf of other college students but I know that after I made the transition into being a full-time college student, my skin care routine changed quite drastically. It's not to say that I got lazy about my routine because that's not true. If anything, I'm more serious about my skin care routine. 

When I say that my skin care routine changed, I mean in the products that I use. I've struggled with acne since middle school so sticking to a routine is something that has become part of my daily routines. Every morning when I wake up, I get out of bed and go straight to the bathroom to wash my face and apply moisturizer. Then, every night before I jump in the shower, I make sure to remove all of my makeup and wash my face again. 

I've never been one to use super expensive products on my skin and don't consider the products I use to be high end. Currently, all of the products I'm using are Neutrogena products (this post is not sponsored, just really love the brand) adn can be found at drugstores. Skin care is something that is important to me as a college student because I always feel more confident in myself when my skin is clear and if I'm being real, there's a lot of events that go on in my life and I don't like seeing acne all over my face in photos. 

It's no secret that college can be stressful and if you're anything like me, your skin likely flares up during stressful weeks of the semester. I've been able to minimize my breakouts and control them when they happen because I stick to a set routine every morning and night.

The face wash I'm currently using & loving is the  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser. I love this face wash because it does have a bit of texture to it so it gently exfoliates my skin and helps to get excess dirt and makeup up. It's gentle enough that I can use it both morning and evening without irritation and it's helped control the oil on my face as I have natually oily skin. 

I've been using the  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream for over a year now and I've loved it from day one. As I mentioned above, I have naturally very oily skin but this product does a nice job of mattifying my face while also helping to keep my skin look and feel moisturized throughout the day. It isn't a heavy lotion and I've never felt like it was clogging my pores, an issue I've had with previous products. This lotion is a little pricey for my college budget ($20) but it lasts me SO LONG. It's definitely worth the investment in my opinion.

I've been using  Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes since middle school and haven't had any issues with them so they've been my preferred brand of choice for almost 10 years now. Tip: if you're a Costco member you can usually find a bulk package for a good price or you can get a big box of them off of Amazon for a good deal, too. 

To all college students out there, what college budget friendly skin care products do you use?
