September is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about returning to class and simplifying your skincare and cleaning routine. Since many will be focusing on your studies, it’s best to follow routines that are simple yet effective, so that you can have glowing skin and a clean living space that doesn’t take too much of your time.

Within your back-to-school clean skincare routine, you’ll want a cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, and a product that contains SPF. In addition, a dry shampoo, creamy conditioner, and clean, natural laundry detergent can improve your life in ways you never thought possible.

Before building out your new regimens, here are Think Dirty’s top back-to-school picks that have you feeling confident on and off campus.

These Kind Laundry detergent sheets come in two scent options: fragrance-free and ocean breeze. They are also contained in zero-waste packaging instead of those traditional single-use plastic jugs that end up in the landfill.
