The perfect back-to-school skincare
And just like that, the school year is underway… We’re still perfecting our morning routine, which has required some adjustment since my son no longer pops out of bed at 6:15 like clockwork. Instead, I’m making his breakfast and lunch before heading upstairs to rouse him from his slumber—and trying to find my window to get dressed and semi-ready for the day before drop-off at school. I’ve managed to squeeze in my AM skincare routine but haven’t had the time to get to makeup, but this actually hasn’t been a problem thanks to Natura Bissé’s new Diamond Cocoon Sheer collection.
This moisturizer and eye cream are more than luxurious ways to start the day. In addition to major hydration, age-fighting ingredients, protection against environmental pollution and a much-needed shield from blue light, these skin saviors have a subtle universal tint that evens out skin tone and leaves skin looking radiant. The eye cream has been a major game-changer since it seriously brightens dark circles and lids while sending puffiness and other signs of too little sleep on their way.
My skin has never looked better at 7 a.m. without a stitch of makeup, which means I don’t have to worry about run-ins with teachers or moms—and I can even pop into Starbucks for a coffee without a second thought. In fact, on days I’m more tethered to my desk than not, I’ve been skipping the makeup altogether other than a coat of Glossier Lash Slick and a swipe of my Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick at 2 p.m. before picking up at school.
