So no one told you life was gonna be this way….” That is for sure. When planning for the school year you probably imagined running into the arms of your friends and all the memories you were going to make together – study groups, football games and student orgs. However, everything looks quite different this year as we stare at each other through little computer screens. While some schools are planning on opening back up, many students are starting their school year virtually for the first time in their life. Maybe we should have taken those University of Phoenix online advertisements more seriously. While laptops and pens are back-to-school essentials, keep scrolling for a list of items that will spice up your year.
Cooluli, Skincare Fridge
The perfect statement item for skincare lovers. This Cooluli mini-fridge is super chic, does not take up a lot of room and keeps skincare items at a cool 46-50 degrees. While you do not need a skincare fridge, cooler temperatures can help lengthen the shelf life of products like vitamin C or retinoids (they oxidize in the sunlight), and chilled skincare feels refreshing in the mornings before class.

The political climate combined with all this newfound change can lead to an increase in stress-related acne. Give yourself the gift of good skin with this complete morning and evening routine. Ingredients like salicylic acid, lactic acid, retinoids, niacinimides and sulfur work in tandem to set skin straight. Toodle-oo acne 👋
