During exam season, I find that my skin always seems to take a turn for the worst, but this year, I've employed the help of skin products that I'm hoping will keep my fresh faced and glow-y throughout. A combination of late-nights and cramming seem to have a big effect on me, and having a bad skin day on top of that just adds to the general stress of the situation so I've been trialling a couple of products so your skin will feel beautiful, and you can focus on the work!
This isn't by any means my whole routine, but that changes on a weekly basis anyway, so I thought I would just show you the foundation of what I am using to help keep my skin in tip-top condition over this stressful time. Firstly, a good pamper will help to calm and destress you. I like to use the deep clean purifying mask when my skin is feeling a little more congested and needs a deep cleanse, and the magical moisture mask to get rid of any dryness (which I find tends to particularly become a problem when I am more stressed than usual). Both only need 10 mins, so they are easy to slip into your day, even when you are busy, and I find that just the short little break, taking your mind off everything and relaxing completely can leave me feeling completely refreshed.
On an everyday basis, I like to use a night time moisturiser and eye cream to make sure that my skin isn't missing out on anything that it should really get - 8 hours sleep, I'm thinking of you. As I mentioned earlier, I really seem to suffer with dryness when I am stressed, making the skin look dull and all round unappealing. The moisturiser seems to help inject a little radiance back into it, and smooths it out, whilst the eye cream provides a wonderful cooling effect and reduces puffiness.
My skin looks it's best for a long time after sticking to this mini-routine, and it feels like it is in a lot better condition too so I'm hoping that I will get through the exams without it changing! How do you help your skin during stressful periods?
