How to Get Clear Skin Before Homecoming 2023

School is officially back in session and homecoming is right around the corner! Between classes, football games, and spirit week, homecoming can be overwhelming. You have to pick a dress, plan pictures, and find a date (if thats’s your thing). Whether this is your first high school homecoming or your last, one thing’s for sure — you DON’T want acne or dry skin to ruin your night.

The last thing you want is your makeup to look patchy or powdery because of dry skin. It’s essential to have a moisturizer that locks in hydration all day and will protect your skin from the grime of a crowded dancefloor. We recommend the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator from SkinMedica, it’s the best of the best. The HA5 rejuvenator provides instant, long-lasting hydration that will last through classes, a powderpuff game, recess, you name it. Formulated with skin-loving ingredients like vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, this hydrator fortifies your skin’s natural defense against damage. You no longer have to worry about bacteria, dust, or microparticles circulating throughout the school causing your skin to break out. This hydrator’s potent ingredients and clinically tested formula will protect your skin all day, night, and dance long.

Hand Cream & Lip Treatment

Homecoming takes place right as we enter flu season, so you may catch yourself washing your hands more than usual. This can be incredibly drying, especially as fall approaches. You don’t have to worry about choosing between supple hands and catching the flu thanks to C&E Hand Renewal cream. You’ll also want to show off your homecoming manicure and corsage! This medical grade hand cream will keep your hands soft and supple, no matter how many times you wash them throughout the day. C&E Hand Renewal is an antioxidant-rich hand cream that rejuvenates the hands’ delicate skin on a deeper level than lotion from a beauty store. 

Our lips are extremely delicate, similarly to the under eyes. Because our lips are made of thin skin, they easily dry out and crack when met with a slight change in temperature or wind outside. You’ll undoubtedly spend time out in the crisp autumn air watching football games or the homecoming parade! The Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster hydrates on a deep level to repair past damage and prevent new damage from happening. Normal chapstick doesn’t always cut it — it’s the truth. To ensure hydrated, plump lips throughout lipstick reapplications, opt for the Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster. It hydrates, soothes, and actively defends against environmental stressors! 


If you want to transform your skin before the big dance, invest in the TNS Advanced+ Serum from SkinMedica, trust us. This dual-chamber serum visibly improves the appearance of coarse wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin in just a few weeks. It encourages skin cell renewal, supports elastin levels, and encourages collagen production, revealing a smoother, more radiant and youthful complexion. Not only does this serum enhance the appearance of the skin, it works from the inside out to hydrate on a deeper level. 


There’s no better feeling than washing off 7-8 hours worth of makeup and grime after a long day at school. Schools are full of germs, micro particles, and dust that can cause skin irritation and pore blockage. One of the best ways to combat surface level skin irritation is by maintaining a clean, healthy skin barrier. To ensure a clean base, we recommend the SkinMedica Sensitive Skin Cleanser.  SkinMedica’s Sensitive Skin Cleanser is specifically designed for those with inflamed or easily-irritated skin. Full of vitamins and botanical extracts, this cleanser removes environmental grime while providing more hydration than its competitors.

Acne Gel

Acne, everyone’s favorite subject. The most common age group for developing acne is 12-18, so if you find yourself covering pimples (and trying not to pop them), you’re not alone. Not only does acne affect many teens, adolescents, and adults who are of school age, but it also tends to make an appearance in stressful situations. Stressing over your dress and finding a date can easily overwhelm the brain and result in hormonal acne breakouts. If this happens to you, you’re not alone. In fact, acne is the most common skin condition there is! 

Most of us have dealt with it at some point, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Acne can be emotionally taxing and even painful, so we recommend investing in a medical grade acne gel. This gel from PCA Skin targets active or forming breakouts under the skin so they never make their way to the surface. It’s fast acting and is only meant to be applied directly to blemishes, so it won’t dry out the skin.
