The Student’s Guide to Skincare: 4 Ways I’m Clearing my Skin, Space, and Schedule

As a busy student, I’ve been trying to pare down my skincare routine in order to save money and be more efficient in the mornings. I’m a big morning person and spending those important productive hours working on school projects or activities that contribute to my health is vital! At the same time, however, I still want to get the most out of my skincare products so that I can look and feel my best - even on those busy days. Yours has helped me transform my skincare routine into a seamless, minimal process that’s perfectly tailored to my skin, is affordable, and has helped me clear space in my busy schedule.

1. I no longer need to research and test out a bunch of different skincare products

As much as I love skincare, figuring out what kinds of products and ingredients are best for my specific skin needs is a time-intensive, overwhelming process. Do I need salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, or a retinol cream - OR do I need all of the above?! Figuring all of this out and testing out whether products that contain these ingredients react well with my skin can often feel like a waste of time and money. Yours eliminates this process entirely by creating an entirely customized skincare routine with products that each contain 6-10 active ingredients that are personalized to my skin needs.

2. I don’t have to think about what “skin type” I have

Sometimes, my skin feels dry in one place, but oily in others - does that mean I have combination skin overall? Or does it mean I need to switch up my skincare routine depending on how my skin feels that day? It’s hard to know! Yours has completely taken the guesswork out of figuring out my “skin type” with their customization quiz and selfie analysis. The AI Selfie Analysis did all the hard work for me and figured out that acne and certain areas of oiliness were my two top skin concerns, targeting those two issues in my skincare products.

The skincare quiz asked about my general lifestyle (e.g., sleep, stress, make-up use, my environment) - which I really appreciated since I know stress likely impacts my acne. Their full customization process goes above and beyond what I would have considered on my own which has cleared space in my mind to focus on other things!

3. I can achieve my skincare goals with a minimalist routine

One of my favorite things about Yours is how beautifully simple my skincare routine now is! Their minimalist routine involves just 3 steps: a cleanser, a serum, and a moisturizer. Since my set comes with personalized serums and moisturizers for day and night, I’m able to see amazing results with not a lot of products.

On top of that, the design of their products includes beautiful, bright colors and AM/PM indicators that make it abundantly clear what a product is for and when it should be used. For example, the cloud cleanser is packaged in a stunning blue that makes it clear it is for washing your face while the sunscreen mist is wrapped in a happy yellow that reminds you to give yourself a spritz of SPF before going out in the sun!

4. I don’t have to worry about whether my products are ethical or sustainable

Last, but certainly not least, Yours prioritizes ethics and sustainability in their products and they are transparent about their product creation process. Not only that - their products are also cruelty-free, vegan, and free of toxins, parabens, and phthalates. Having sustainable, non-toxic products in my home is extremely important to me and I appreciate that Yours shares those values and makes it incredibly easy for customers to see what’s in their products and how those products are produced. This clears space in my mind because it gives me peace knowing that I’m supporting a company that shares my values and supports the planet.
