When your summer “must-have beauty product” is sunscreen, it can be difficult to hop back into your back-to-school beauty routine. Beauty; however, should never stress you out. Style Guru, Alex Riba, reminds us that, “Beauty products aren’t there to accomplish their jobs and be put away! They encourage a healthy lifestyle.”

We couldn’t agree more, so we pulled together our top ten beauty essentials to make you feel confident for back-to-school. Consider your beauty routine upgraded.
