6 products to repair Freshers' skin

Freshers can really take it out on your skin. Late nights, too many pizzas and only eating vegetables if you mean the tomato and lettuce on your 3am burger. We've all been there and it's only really about a week long but it can leave you with dull, blemished or just plain tired looking skin. But, luckily for you guys, your skin saviours Feelunique are here with 20% off for a limited time only so you can refresh your face for a fraction of the price!

Clean it up

I know double cleansing won't be at the top of your list when you come home after a night out but if you do get the chance to give your skin some TLC, using a product such as Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is a great way to really give your skin some love. A face wipe is fine if you're seriously tired but a proper double cleanse with a balm or an oil is essential for getting rid of all the makeup, grime and dirt that you don't want to sit on your skin when you're sleeping.

Next up, these First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads are a super quick way of toning skin and adding radiance. Swipe one of these bad boys over your skin post cleanse and pre-moisturise and you'll see tighter pores and more radiant skin in no time!

Essential oils

After Freshers your skin will most definitely be dehydrated. I guarantee you won't be drinking enough water to counteract the many pints or glasses of your fave tipple that will be consumed in the craziness that is Freshers! Oils are a great way to get some moisture back into your skin and everyone should use them. Yep, even oily-skinned gals amongst us. I have combination skin which can be oily but using an oil actually makes my skin less likely to break out. I love the Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water which is fantastic for dry skin and I swear by Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Once, I dropped it, lost half the product and I cried like someone had cancelled my birthday. This stuff is that good.

Special Treatment

Sometimes we all need a little TLC and special treatment don't we? Definitely when it comes to Freshers week. The NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm is the most luxurious lip balm ever and it's going to make parched lips feel gorgeous again. Wearing heavy makeup almost every night is going to take it's toll on your skin and especially dry your lips out so this is perfect for reinvigorating your pout. Finally, if blemishes are more prominent in your skin after Freshers a targeted corrector is the antidote. The La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. is for "oily skin prone to localised imperfections and blemishes" a.k.a spots. I love this brand for breakouts because all their products are really gentle and aren't drying but they really hit spots hard!
