Get Glowing: How to Prep Your Skin for Graduation & College

Graduation is one of the most memorable events in high school, and naturally, you want to look your absolute best! A healthy, radiant complexion is the perfect canvas for your makeup and can boost your confidence as you step into your stunning dress/suite. Prepping your skin ahead of time is key to achieving that flawless, glowing look. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you prepare your skin for grad.

1. Start Early with a Good Skincare Routine

Start your routine at least a month before grad to give your skin ample time to adapt and improve.

Daily Routine:

  • Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser morning and night to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Our Clean Face Cleansing Bar is the perfect option! It will clear your skin with a rose-clay face cleansing bar that great for all skin types!
  • Moisturize: Hydrate your skin with a good moisturizer. Even oily skin needs moisture—opt for a lightweight, non-comedogenic formula. Our Refine Face Oil  will clear up, tone and normalize oil production with this rebalancing skin oil for normal, slightly oily and congested skin.
  • SPF: Sunscreen is crucial. Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher daily to protect your skin from UV damage and prevent dark spots.

2. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion. Choose a gentle exfoliator with fine particles or a chemical exfoliant like AHAs or BHAs if you have sensitive skin. Avoid harsh scrubs that can irritate your skin. Our Exfoliant Face Mask will bring back your luminosity with this dual-purpose exfoliating clay mask rich in vitamin A & C to clear up, revitalize and regenerate your skin. Great for dull, tired complexions.

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

  • Water: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Aim for at least eight glasses. And more if you are exercising.
  • Serum: Incorporate a hydrating serum with ingredients like lavender and rose into your routine. This will keep your skin fresh and moisturized.

4. Pamper Your Skin with a Facial at ISA ALEX

Treat yourself and book a facial with Gunilla at ISA Alex! Our Sooth Facial has Avocado extracts the are used to repair and rebuild damaged skin tissues in this facial. Tailored to suit your specific needs, this treatment evens out skin irregularities, reduces inflammation and strengthens the epidermis. Includes gentle exfoliation and extractions when needed. Your skin will feel instantly more smooth, calmed and refreshed. Appropriate for all skin types especially sensitive and Rosacea skin.

5. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle


  • Balanced Diet: Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids can benefit your skin.
  • Limit Sugar and Dairy: These can sometimes trigger breakouts or skin issues for some people.


  • Adequate Sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. Your skin repairs itself while you sleep, so it’s essential for a healthy glow.

Stress Management:

  • Relaxation Techniques: Practice stress-relieving activities like yoga, meditation, or even just taking time to unwind with a good book or music. Stress can negatively impact your skin, leading to breakouts or dullness.

Prepping your skin for grad takes time and dedication, but the results are worth it. By following a consistent skincare routine and making healthy lifestyle choices, you’ll ensure your skin looks its best for your big night. Remember, the goal is to enhance your natural beauty and let your confidence shine through. Enjoy your this moment —you’re going to look fabulous!
