College, a place of parties, staying up all night, poor nutrition (cup of noodles), and hours of homework. Though college life can be fun, it can take a toll on your body and your fashion sense. Here are a few tips to make sure you do not look like a hot mess everyday of your college life:
Skincare: Little sleep and poor nutrition takes a major toll on your skin. To keep your skin clear and glowing use Neutrogena Acne Stress Control products to fight blemishes caused by stress and those night where you fall asleep with your makeup on.
To make sure you fight acne all day use Neutrogena skin clearing foundation makeup. To brighten up those tired eyes use Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller to reduce puffiness under the eyes caused by no sleep and exhaustion. To finish it off use the Lola Concealer Stick to hide any dark circles under your eyes and make you look like you had full eight hours of sleep.
Hair: Taking care of your hair when you are in rush can be a hassle and sometimes you don't have time to wash your hair every day, besides shampooing your hair every day is bad for you. To keep your hair feeling fresh and clean use Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo to fight the look of greasy hair in between washes.
To tame your mane without spending a whole lot of money, use Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine products to control frizz, moisturize, and create shine for your hair.
Fashion - when it comes to fashion at college you must dress according to wear you school is located. Therefore, you will not be wearing a t-shirt and shorts when you go to school in Vermont. College can be tiring, late nights, no sleep, with a ton of homework, dressing fashionably is the last thing on your mind. So instead of wearing sweatpants every day, make sure you pack plenty of oversized vests and t-shirts, your favorite pair of perfect-fitting jeans, loose dresses, flats, and lots jewelry, and scarves.
One of my favorite looks is a fitted graphic t-shirt, a blazer, skinny jeans, paired with flats or heels. I like to mix it up now and then. Layering is key when looking put-together. I also love layering a t-shirt and a plaid shirt paired with jeans and boots.
If you are in a rush in the morning, I would throw on an oversized off-the shoulder t-shirt, a pair of skinny jeans, flats, paired with accessories such as earrings and a scarf to complete any look. Of course I would dress in colors according to the season. However, never forget to pack at least one pair of dress pants and/or pencil skirt, business style shirt, and a pair of heels since college students give presentations monthly and you must dress appropriate.
