In order to stay breakout-free and have clean, healthy skin, it's important to have a daily skincare routine. It doesn't have to be too fancy or inexpensive—simply cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin regularly can work wonders. 

Have you ever wondered what other collegiettes around the country do when it comes to taking care of their skin? We wanted to know more about their methods, techniques and product recommendations, so we asked three collegiettes to let us in on their secrets! Keep reading to get the inside scoop.

Our West Coast Gal: Ashley Nicole Flood 

Ashley is a junior journalism major at Northern Arizona University, and she's originally from California. 

Her Campus: What is your skin type?

Ashley Flood: I have combination/oily skin, but during the winter it gets really dry!

HC: What is your daytime skincare routine? 

ANF: I typically use St. Ives. Pink Lemon Scrub ($3.99) or C. Booth's face wash ($6) to wash my face. Then I moisturize with Pond's Dry Skin Face Lotion ($6.99) and use Monistat's Anti-Chaffing Gel ($5.98) as a primer, followed by my makeup routine.

HC:What is your evening skincare routine?

ANF: Same, except only the cleansing and moisturizing part.

HC: Do you change your skincare routine when the seasons change?

ANF: Typically my skincare routine stays the same throughout the seasons, however I occassionaly will exfoliate with a face brush during the winter months, and sometimes in summer if I get a sun burn! For the most part I try to make sure I include an SPF in my skin care routine no matter what the season.

HC: What are your main skincare concerns, and what do you use or do for them?

ANF: I think my main skin care concerns are acne and dry skin. I use Mary Kay's spot treatment ($10) for acne, and sometimes a new toothbrush to exfoliate my face if it ever becomes unbearably dry.

Our East Coast Gal: Felicia Elizabeth Beaton

Felicia is a sophomore education major at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, and she's from Massachusetts. 

Her Campus: What is your skin type?

FEB: Combination.

HC: What is your daytime skincare routine? 

FEB: I don't do too much in the daytime. I wake up and wash my face with a cleanser like Biore's Warming Anti-Breakout Cleanser ($6.47) or some Ivory soap ($4.99) and go about my day. Then, I'll either put on makeup or just dry my face and head out the door. [Editor's note: We recommend moisturizing after you wash your face!]

HC: What is your evening skincare routine?

FEB: I use Neutrogena's Makeup Remover Wipes ($6.99) if I have worn makeup, and then I'll wash my face with either Ivory soap or my cleanser. If I haven't worn makeup, I just wash my face.

HC: Do you change your skincare routine when the seasons change?

FEB: I do not.

HC: What are your main skincare concerns, and what do you use or do for them?

FEB: My main skincare concern is acne. Usually when I suffer from a breakout, I'll use whatever spot treatment and acne masks I have laying around. Most of the time, I end up over-treating the breakouts I get because I just want them to go away!

Our Southern Gal: Kelli Amanda Dunagan 

Kelli is a senior nutrion and dietetics major at Samford University in Alabama, and she's originally from Georgia. 

Her Campus: What is your skin type?

KAD: I have combination dry/oily skin. The area around my nose is typically the most affected by the seasons, and my bangs cause my forehead to be a little more oily than other areas.

HC: What is your daytime skincare routine? 

KAD: I'm super low maintenance with my facial skincare regimine, especially in the summer when it is more humid. Every morning, I use Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser ($7.21). I like that it clears my dead skin away without drying me out too much. That's it! In the winter, I use a moisturizer, as the chilly area completely dries me up. I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF ($9.49) for those months.

HC: What is your evening skincare routine?

KAD: In the evening, I use make-up remover wipes to clean off my makeup. I'm a huge fan of the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes ($6.99). If I have any problem spots, I'll use a spot treatment that isn't too dehydrating.

HC: Do you change your skincare routine when the seasons change?

KAD: Yes. Due to the humid summers and dry winters in the South, I have to change up my routine once the temperature drops.

HC: What are your main skincare concerns, and what do you use or do for them?

KAD: My biggest issue is always the dryness of my skin. Moisturizers are the best treatment for this issue. Also, I've had bangs since I was in middle school and sometimes they can cause my forehead to break out. I make sure to always keep my bangs very clean and I don't use conditioner on them. Spot treatments are the best choice if the issue does occur.
