Useful skincare tips for Freshers' Week

28th August 2014

It's that time of year again, where former A-Level students set off to university to start a whole new chapter and finally get a chance to see what the Freshers' Week buzz is all about.

Most of you who've already been lucky enough to experience Freshers' Week will agree that it is a week filled with a lot of fun, excitement, socialising, food and drink. During your time at university, try not to neglect your skin if you want to look and feel your best for all the hard work...

1. Drink plenty of water

Although it's common for your alcohol consumption to increase during Freshers's Week, it's still important that you remember to drink at least a litre of water every day. This will prevent your skin from becoming too dry and dehydrated.

2. Remove your makeup every night

For female students of course, who will no doubt want to make a great first impression, but if you want to look as good at the end of the week, as you did at the beginning remember to remove your makeup after a night out. Makeup wipes or any other form of makeup removal, will help you avoid unsightly breakouts.

Stay on top of your skincare regimen

It's important that you are on top of your skincare regimen no matter what time of year. Make sure you're still using face wash, cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser on a daily basis to keep your skin refreshed and pimple-free.

Treat yourself to a skin peel before you head off to university

Why not visit a reputable skin clinic like sk:n clinics for a skin peel session right before you head off. Skin peels work by removing dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to grow, helping your skin achieve that glow that you've always been seeking for.

A trained dermatologist at our clinics can give you the advice you need on the right type of skin peel for you, if you're new to them and unsure about which kind to go for.

Make sure your diet consists of plenty of fruits and vegetables

For many students, this may be your first experience of life not living with parents, but still be careful not to eat lots of unhealthy food. Instead, get in the habit of making sure your diet consists of plenty of fruits and vegetables, so your health and skin stay in top condition at all times.
