Academic Aesthetic: 5 Ways To Look Snatched in Time for the New Semester

Nobody wants to head into a new semester feeling dry and crusty. If you’re ready to turn heads at school, here are just five ways to beautify yourself before you hit the books.


Tweezers aren’t the only way to reshape your eyebrows, so if you’ve never treated yourself to salon-quality brow care, it’s time to indulge. Threading can be a gentle way to trim your arches. Tinting can be a way to make them darker and more dramatic. Microblading can fill them in, and brow extensions can impact curve, tail, fullness, and more. 


Nails can get overlooked during makeovers, but they’re one of those minor details that will really pull together a stylish and well-groomed appearance. Think about things like gels, acrylics, tips, press-ons, and nail art. Think about matching your manicure to your purse or your shoes. Guys, you can benefit from nail care as well; your cuticles will look better after treatment, too. 


Facelifts can benefit people of every age who want to combat sagging skin or tired-looking expressions. You don’t have to go under the knife, either: There are simple, non-surgical facelifts that use polydioxanone (PDO) threads to invisibly tighten the skin. These threads are the same ones used in dissolvable surgical sutures, and they’re so quick and easy to apply that a PDO thread lift is often called a “lunchtime lift.” You can get the procedure and go right back to class or work.


It’s time to start that return-to-campus skincare regimen. Shed the previous season by exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturizing; then, dive into new products that can bring out your best looks. Korean skincare masks are all the rage right now. You can also look into products that target problem areas such as under-eye bags. If you want to go the professional route, try skincare treatments like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing.


Last but not least, a new hairstyle can make you feel like a new person. You can experiment in all kinds of ways to give yourself a fresh ‘do. Temporary measures include extensions and wash-out dyes; more lasting ones include haircuts, highlights, perms, and bleaching. You can also look into treatments like hair glossing to look better with the hair that you already have.

These are just a few ways to treat the campus overpass like your own runway. Some are minor adjustments that you can make to your existing beauty routine; others are more dramatic, long-lasting transformations. Either way, they’ll help you live your best life at school!
