Back To School Beauty EssentialsBy Wander Beauty | Sep 30, 2020
Back to school may look a little different this year but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your entire beauty routine. These back to school multitasking beauty essentials will have you ready for anything in-person and virtual school throws your way.
Back to school season means that winter is around the corner. Get ahead of dry winter skin with a hydrating moisturizer. Moisturizer is critical for maintaining your skin’s barrier. Dive In Moisturizer’s lightweight gel formula provides 72 hours of deep hydration. For more intense hydration, try our Staycation Hydrating Mask, a 3-in-1 soothing mask, daily moisturizer, and overnight skin-quenching treatment. This powerful ceramide and peptide combination helps to improve skin texture and prevent moisture loss, drenching skin in long-lasting hydration.
For those doing in-person learning, it’s important to moisturize lips even under your mask. Formulated with lip-loving ingredients including niacinamide and avocado oil, Lip Retreat keeps lips soft all day without feeling sticky. Make sure to avoid any synthetic fragrance or flavors as these can cause irritation. The clear shade Oasis is perfect for keeping lips nourished while avoiding messy mask stains. For those attending classes virtually, add a moisturizing pop of color with the tinted shades: Skinny Dip (nude), Spa Day (strawberry pink), and Excursion (berry).
Stayed up late studying for an exam and need to fake awake? Dualist to the rescue! Use the lightweight illuminating liquid to brighten under eyes. Flip it around and use the full coverage matte stick to conceal dark spots and blemishes. These crease-proof formulas soothe skin with aloe vera, protect against free radicals with vitamin E, and improve skin elasticity with collagen.
These are perfect between classes for a quick pick-me-up! Baggage Claim has three innovative layers that allow for maximum penetration of skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf extract, and a blend of 17 amino acids. Apply for 10-15 minutes to hydrate, soothe, and de-puff the under-eye area.
Mascara adds a little *oomph* to any look! Unlashed Volume and Curl provides buildable volume, length, and curl, perfect for an everyday look. To pump up the drama for a presentation or a Zoom hang out with classmates, try Mile High Club Volume and Length. The formula’s wetter texture adds instant length and definition in just one swipe.
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable, even if you’re inside all day. From rays coming in through the windows to blue light from computers, sunscreen is a must to protect your skin. While both types (physical/mineral and chemical) protect against UVA and UVB rays, only physical/mineral sunscreens provide protection from visible light. Don’t forget to reapply every couple of hours!
