The Step-By-Step Back-to-School Skincare & Healthy Mind Routine – Let’s bring a healthy mind, happy skin & solid routines back to school; what do you say? I know back-to-school time can feel a little bit chaotic, and switching summer vibes for alarms and schedules can feel a little bit overwhelming. This month I want to share some helpful tips with you so you can keep your skin shining and your mind clear, relaxed & focused.
5 Back to School Healthy Living Tips You’ll LOVE!
1. Your skincare routine
‘Book ends’ Take 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening (your book ends) and fit in a quick skincare routine.
- Don’t go to bed with makeup on your face because it’ll transfer onto your pillow and then transfer back onto your skin, even if you have clean skin the following night.
- Don’t skip brushing your teeth AM and PM.
- Don’t skip washing your face AM and PM.

2. Create an at-home spa moment
Notice how I didn’t say spa day. Just a spa moment. Ten minutes to be exact. I love using the Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask from Beautycounter once a week for a little at-home spa moment. It is so rejuvenating and exfoliating for the skin and for your nervous system! My aunt says this is her favorite mask because it makes her face feel like a baby’s butt. LOL! This exfoliating gel facial mask instantly transforms dull, tired skin with AHA glycolic acid, bamboo particles, and hydrating ingredients.
3. Eye cream & concealer for the win!
Let’s be real; a great eye cream can totally save the day! I love the Countermatch Eye Rescue Cream from Beautycounter because it completely hydrates and wakes up my tired eyes. And my concealer glides on smoothly. I use the Skin Twin Creamy Concealer by Beautycounter in Tan-0 (there’s also a quiz you can take to match your skin tone!).
4. Highlight yourself & get a clean shine
I absolutely LOVE the Cheeky Clean Highlighting Balm from Beautycounter for my cheekbones and brow bone. I personally use Lunar (this doesn’t have a tint, just a highlight), AND you could choose one with a tint you prefer as well. I feel like this product totally brightens my face and gives me such a youthful glow.
5. 10 minutes of breathwork
The Breath is cool because It’s both voluntary and involuntary. When we become aware of and control our breath, as we do in breath work, we can use it to help regulate our nervous system and release trauma and repressed emotions. This breath work, or pranayama as it’s called In Sanskrit, is a powerful daily practice that can change your emotional wellbeing in a matter of minutes.
