The final month of summer vacation is here. Can you believe it? Before we know the munchkins will be heading back to school. Heck – my middle child will be starting Kindergarten in a few shorts weeks. For me that is very hard to wrap my head around. It only feels like just yesterday that he was just being placed upon my chest after a quick home birth.

Back to school while exciting for some, can also be a time that many find hard to adjust to. Let’s face it – getting back into that back to school groove and routine can be hard to do.

Back-to-school can also mark a time when young women chose to start experimenting with beauty products, and looking for tips and tricks to master all those new Fall trends. I can remember vividly spending hours in front of the mirror when I was in Grade 12 and first year at college.

Here is me in all my glory during my final year of high school. Circa 2002
Here is me in all my glory during my final year of high school. Circa 2002

Recently I had COVERGIRL Make-up Pro, Veronica Chu; and Pantene Consulting Stylist, Justin German have provided us with tips on how to use some of their favourite products from COVERGIRL, Pantene, Olay and Venus, which I am very excited to share with you today.

1. Every great beauty look starts with a great regimen:

“Following a daily hair care regimen is the basis of great looking hair!  One of the staples of this is a shampoo and conditioner like the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner – I love this collection because it’s designed to repair hair, control moisture levels and prevent damage for a soft, smooth, moisturized feel. This makes it a fantastic option for girls experimenting with new styles and putting their hair through its paces so it looks healthy and strong.” – Justin German

“Similarly, great makeup starts with great skin. For young women in their teens or early twenties, their bodies are still growing and factors like stress and hormonal changes can cause skin to act out.  I always recommend following a cleansing routine morning and night, followed by a good moisturizer. One of my favourite cleansers is the Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Face Scrub – the oil free formula won’t clog pores and cleanses without over drying.  For a moisturizer, apply the Olay Total Effects Featherweight Moisturizer – I like this one because it’s super light-weight and includes an SPF for added protection.” – Veronica Chu

2. Less is more:

“Playing with hair products and different hair styles is really fun, and it’s a great way to learn! But using too much product can leave hair crunchy, frizzy, flat, or oily. Start off with lighter products like detanglers or the Pantene Pro-V Stylers All-in-One Styling Balm to avoid this – the light multi-tasking formula tames frizz and flyaways while protecting from damage. As an added benefit, other styling products can be layered on top so it’s a great one to experiment and play with.” – Justin German

“When girls start asking to use makeup, think of it as a gradual transition with a very soft and natural feel.  Mascara is an easy way to start experimenting – I usually suggest younger girls start with a single coat of brown mascara to give a more natural look. My favourite for beginners is COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume with its wide, straight barrel that makes it really easy to handle. Once comfortable with LashBlast Volume, then branch out and try others in the COVERGIRL LashBlast family (Bloom, Clump Crusher or Fusion) and experiment with other pigments.” – Veronica Chu

3. Fresh and effortless is in:

“Undone, dropped out waves are everywhere and they’re so easy to create, especially if your daughter showers at night. Simply apply a leave in conditioner to the hair while it’s still damp, then braid the hair. In the morning, break down the braid and spray the roots with Pantene Root Reboot Dry Shampoo, adding volume and texture. Not only is this look on trend, but it’s a great time saver too!” – Justin German

“Dewy skin is a staple for the upcoming season. What makes this look particularly good for younger girls is that it’s so natural for them – it’s all about a fresh youthful glow that they already have! To help bring out this natural glow and even out skin tone, apply a small amount of Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream. I love the extremely light weight, oil-free formula because it allows for even colour while minimizing the look of pores.” – Veronica Chu

Another important mention – Body care is also important at this age. For those who are starting to think about shaving or already doing it regularly, the new Venus Swirl razoris designed with new proprietary FlexiBall technology featuring unique four-way movement to shave those hard-to-reach places that other razors might miss. And for a fresh clean that lasts all day, the new Fresh Outlast body washes from Olay that contain 3X more mild cleansers than before.

    I always loved picking out my backpack for back to school! It wasn’t something I did every year but when it was a time for a new backpack I would get really excited.
    My most inspirational teacher was my grade 4 teacher. She was always so creative and encouraged us to be creative!

    My fondest memory of school was playing on the basketball team in high school and winning the Provincial Championships my graduating year. We had come 2nd twice in the 2 years prior, and finally won as seniors – best in BC. My coach was an amazing person, and he took a group of individuals who were very different, and didn’t always get along, and turned us into a cohesive team. We are still lifelong friends. He taught us so much more than basketball skills.

    One of my most fond memories was shopping for back to school clothes while on vacation. We lived in a small town where there was not a lot of choice in clothes. I always seemed to find something that was very different from some of the big cities we visited on our holiday. The first day was exciting yet I felt nervous with my outfit that was never the norm for the area. I had some great home economics teachers that always encouraged me and cooking and sewing became some of my favourite things to do thanks to them.

    My fondest memory is going away to outdoor school, to camp in the wilderness & learn about nature. It was fun to travel & sleepover with all the kids from school. I did have inspiring teachers who believed in me, 1 in particular who got me through multiplication tables.

    My fave school memories are of grade school, I went to separate school for my early years where I had some great friends and memories. Then I went to another school for just a few months and the teachers, students and their Swiss Chalet Christmas lunches were hard to leave as they left a lasting impression on me.

    In my school most teachers were military wives, so we often had 3 teachers in a year for the same subject, because they relocated often. And sometimes we didn’t have teachers at all for several weeks. That was the case with physics for many years until in high school we’ve got a teacher that stayed there for 2 years – exactly as long as I needed to finish the school and get credits for the university. She pushed us hard, but it wouldn’t work any other way after yeas of relaxation 🙂 I’m really grateful to her.

    I loved school! I was one of the kids that always went at least an hour early and often stayed late. I had an excellent homeroom teacher in junior high, that gave me a lot of responsibility, and I really enjoyed that. She genuinely cared about all her students and made sure that the ones who needed additional challenges got them and those falling behind kept up. She was great!
