Congratulations: It’s almost time for the big day! We’re talking about graduation. Whether you’re finishing high school or college, one thing’s for sure—this is a major accomplishment. And because your friends and family will likely all be there to cheer you on as you walk across the stage to receive your diploma, we have a feeling you want your skin to look as perfect as possible. And that means following a skin care routine that’ll help ensure your complexion looks it’s most beautiful on graduation day. Beyond facial cleanser and moisturizer, there are other skin care products you can use to get your glow on, including a face scrub and face mask. Keep reading for your graduation skin care routine so that you look your best on the big day.

1. Use a Clay Facial Cleanser

The first step in your graduation skin care routine should be cleansing. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser is suitable for all skin types and is enhanced with charcoal. It can help purifiy the surface of your skin of dirt, oil, and pollution. Use after use, you may notice that your dull skin appears brighter, too. In the morning, squeeze the facial cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face in circular motions, avoiding your delicate eye area. Then, rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

2. Exfoliate with a Face Scrub a Few Times a Week

It’s time to get familiar with a face scrub, as this skin care product can help keep your skin clear. But what face scrub should you use? The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub effectively removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the surface of skin and polishes away dead skin. With continued use over time, pores look tighter, unclogged, and less visible. Smooth a small amount of face scrub with dry fingers onto clean, dry skin, avoiding your eye area. Massage the face scrub over your face with wet fingers, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. It can also be used on your lips to smooth or refine them.

3. Relax with a Face Mask

The lead-up to graduation can be seriously stressful—you have to hand in those final few assignments before school’s out for good. So, make time to unwind by using a soothing face mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask. This face mask is formulated with seaweed and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, reduce the look of imperfections, and gently cleanse stressed areas. Immediately, skin feels refreshed and comfortable and skin is clean and appears rebalanced. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use twice a week for best results.

4. Smooth Your Skin with a Moisturizer

Whether you’ve just cleansed, exfoliated, or masked, it’s important to follow up with a moisturizer that suits your skin type. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin, all of which are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration.

5. Always Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

At the end of the day, don’t just fall into bed with makeup on your face. Take the time to properly take it all off. Use a gentle facial cleanser, like a micellar water, to effectively get rid of all traces of makeup from the surface of your skin. Pour some of the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser – Normal to Dry Skin, which hydrates and soothes, onto a cotton pad and wipe the pad across your face to remove your makeup. Ta-da, you’re done!

Once you have your graduation skin care routine set, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to do your makeup. You can’t go wrong with winged eyeliner. Here's How to Achieve Your Sharpest Winged Eyeliner.
