Back-to-school skincare essentials

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

School is in session! You’ve checked paper, pencils, notebooks and a long list of things off your list. Have you considered your kid’s skincare needs? It doesn’t matter if your child attends public, private, boarding or home school, we have their back-to-school skincare essentials covered.

Classroom & After School Activities

Schools stock up on hand soap and hand sanitizer typically filled with harsh, drying ingredients because, frankly, they’re cheap. You don’t need to sacrifice clean ingredients or clean hands when kids are in class; pack an On the go hand soap (50ml) filled with either Tea tree & Citrus or Lemongrass & Eucalyptus in an easily accessible spot like the outside pocket of a backpack.

Pop a Goat Milk Lotion or a Vegan Lotion (50ml) plus Organic lip balm in your kid’s school bag to keep hands and lips hydrated throughout the day. Kids of all ages love the gentle yummy & sweet scents (try everyone’s new favorite, Fruity, Floral & Earthy!), and you’ll love knowing they’re carrying (and sharing) safer skincare.

In addition to classes, back-to-school brings physical activity, PE, sports and a variety of extracurricular activities. Skin moisturizing and protection is important to help reduce the damaging effect of UV radiation such as premature aging and skin cancer. Elementary school-aged kids enjoy the ‘painting’ (applying) and erasing (rubbing in) or connect-the-dots methods. Teens probably won’t appreciate their parents drawing on them with Body butters 200g or portable 60g; they can, however, appreciate skin moisturizing education.

In addition to body butters, insect repellent is a must for outside activities. The 120ml Repellent Spray & Repellent healing balm fits in the smallest of school and gym bags and naturally protects kids from insect bites with a blend of lemon eucalyptus, lemongrass and citronella, without the potentially harmful effects of DEET.

Homework Time

After school can be just as chaotic as getting ready in the morning: who needs a snack, what did the teacher send home, what’s for dinner and how much homework do you have? Create a calm, quiet homework space anywhere in the home with a relaxing, cleansing essential oil blend such as Immunity oil blend and Relaxing oil blend.

The last item in your back-to-school arsenal should be the Healing repellent balm & Soothing essential oil Blend to comfort sore muscles, relieve skin minor conditions, soothe small skin irritations and refresh the throat and head area with these travel-sized balms.

Extra Credit

Being a teenager is exciting yet stressful, and teens want to return to school looking their best. Start a safe and simple skincare routine with your girl or boy where they receive everything they need to cleanse, tone, hydrate and treat their changing skin, and the packaging also makes it easy to pack for school trips.
