Back to School Beauty Preparation Tips

I know, just the thought of school makes you want to bury your face in your pillow and hope that it's the beginning of the holidays again. But unfortunately, school is just around the corner and we have to go back sooner or later. Instead of writing a post about how terrible school is, I thought I would get you excited and tell you my tips to prepare yourself for back to school!

Beauty Preparation Tips

Now you could choose to go back to school looking like you have had no sleep at all and you just crawled out of bed. You might have a school photo so these tips might help to make you look fresh and ready for the new school year. These are some things I like to do before I go back to school.

- Use a face mask the night before to help soothe, calm and cleanse your skin. This will help to clear out your skin if you are having any break outs
- During the last few days of the holidays try not to wear a full face of makeup, let your skin breathe. Makeup can clog your pores which can cause breakouts and I'm sure you all hate those nasty spots just like me and you wouldn't want them on the first day back!

- Try to remove your nail varnish around 3-5 days before school, if you remove it the night before the nail varnish might've stained your nails and that takes a few days to disappear. (Trust me, once my nails were stained from a red nail varnish, not a nice sight.)
- If you're like me and you hate it when your nails chip becuase they are brittle and weak, trim and file your nails a few days before so they have time to grow back healthily. If you keep you're nails long and you don't trim them often they are more likely to chip.

- I know we all hate going to bed early and waking up early, but if you have been going to bed at 12 every day and waking up at noon, you probably won't be able to go to bed at 10 and wake up at 7 for school. This is because your sleeping pattern has changed, try to go to bed and wake up earlier and earlier each day (around a week before you got back to school) to slowly adjust your sleeping pattern. You want to get as much sleep or you will be haunted with the dreaded puffy under eye bags, well I at least I will.
- This is probably just me, but over summer I give up on taming my brows so I normally just let them grow out and become bushy. So I tend to neaten them up by plucking the odd out of place and mononbrow hairs before I go back to school.

So that is all my back to school preparation and tips. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and thank you for reading. Have a nice day, bye!


  1. I have not tried to sort out my sleeping pattern at all before school starts and I know I'm going to regret it so much when I have to go back. I think I'm just trying to avoid the fact it's starting again and carrying on like summer will last forever when really I need to actually start preparing for school x

  2. These are some great back to school tips. I usually like getting back into my sleeping pattern a week before school starts, but these past few days I've been really ill so it's been hard to get up at 6:30, so Wednesday is going to be a huge shock for me x


    1. Thank you and aw hope you get better soon! Xx

  3. Thank you for the tips! I start school on Wednesday and I have school pictures on Friday. Yikes! I think I might purchase a facial mask tomorrow, hopefully it works out well. And about sleeping schedules, mine is so bad considering I have to wake up at 5:45 for school.

    1. Ahh I go back next Monday and I am really not looking forward to waking up early every day! :( xx
