The best years of your life! The time you make new friends—even best friends—develop crushes, sneak your first drink, burn the midnight out labouring over assignments. Twenty-four hours just don’t seem enough! We know it can be a little difficult to look your best throughout the day, but what can do about it? No matter how much makeup you wear, it’s bound to melt or fade by the end of the day, unless of course you have Nykaa’s 11 point advisory to keep you looking your glummest best all through college.
All those vada pav and bhel parties combined with midnight swotting tare bound to stress out your skin. And the last thing you want to do is wake up to a giant zit. So, take good care of your skin. Wash your face at least twice a day to remove oil, dirt and grime.
