Keeping Fresh As A College Gal On The Go

Are you a college gal on the go? Maybe you are taking 18 credits at school, working after class, and working out in between. If that’s the case, you probably don’t have much time to freshen up very much during the day. I have been there. Over the last few years I have found plenty of solutions for keeping fresh as a college gal on the go.
Freshen Up Your Hair
As a gal on the go, you probably don’t have a bunch of time to wash your hair all the time. Especially if that requires you to also spend time styling it after your shower. So many people swear by dry shampoo, which is great. However, I am not one of those people. My go to product to freshen up my hair is baby powder! I take a tiny bit in my hands and run it through my hair to absorb any grease. With darker hair, I have to make sure I don’t use too much, or it’ll turn my hair white. I work it slowly into my roots for the best results. PLUS baby powder is way cheaper!!!
Freshen Up Your Pits
When you are a gal on the go you probably work up a sweat. I have two cures for this issue. I love to keep baby wipes with me in my purse or backpack. This helps me wipe away any sweat and acts as a sponge bath when I don’t have time to run home and shower. Part two is to keep a mini deodorant with you. It’s important to have the baby wipes if you typically need to reapply deodorant throughout the day. Otherwise, your pores could get clogged.
Freshen Up Your Teeth
Okay so this might just be me (thanks to my dental hygienist mom) but I have everything you could possibly need to freshen up your teeth. I carry a small pouch in my purse that holds everything to keep them nice and fresh. In the bag you will find floss, whisps, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and mouthwash. You never want to be that person that has stinky breath in the middle of a conversation. You might not need to go as crazy as I do, but I highly recommend having at least one thing to freshen up your teeth throughout the day.
Freshen Up Down There
This is something that people don’t usually talk about, but today we are. Maybe this isn’t something you even consider freshening up during your busy days. I have been using Summer’s Eve® for a few years now and absolutely love it. When I found out about the Simply Summer’s Eve® products, I knew I needed to try them out. Simply Summer’s Eve® cleansing cloths are perfect to use when you are feeling a little less fresh than usual.
The individually wrapped cloths are ideal for sticking in your bag and bringing with you everywhere. Personally, I stick some in my purse, my backpack, and gym bag. This allows me to always be fresh.
Summer’s Eve® products allow day-to-day boosts of freshness that allow me (and others) to feel confident all day. The new Simply product line is free from dyes, parabens, and alcohol. Not only are the products balanced for a woman’s natural pH, but they are infused with botanical extracts.
In addition to the cleansing wipes, there is also a foaming wash that is perfect for the shower. The light and gentle formula is perfect for everyday use to ensure daily freshness. Simply Summer’s Eve® products work to eliminate odor causing bacteria as well. These products have helped me stay fresh and feel more confident.
