I always get tons of questions about my skincare routine and beauty products. Now that summer is over and we are gearing up for winter, I feel like your skin needs even more TLC. I’ve been using for over a year and a lot of their products continue to be some of my skincare favorites. I have really sensitive skin so I wanted to share some of those skincare issues we’ll all face this season and some go-to fixes.
1. Stress: Sure stress is a year-round problem, but with less sunshine and vitamin D, stress seems to take a stronger toll more during fall and winter. With the rush of the holidays coming up and the busy season for work, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately and have noticed the stress really affects my skin.

The inversion always gets worse in the winter so I’ve been making a more concerted effort to use products that protect the skin. has been great and I also really love , which is a 3-in-1 product to remove makeup, purify and soothe skin and gently remove impurities and pollutants from the skin. I’ve been using the and interchangeably for over a year and they’re my all-time favorites!
4. Lack of sleep: My skin is always the first tell of a late night or early morning, so (all about brightening!) is perfect for those sleepless nights. I love the and – they are full of antioxidants so this line evens skin tone, smoothes fine lines, and provides 24-hour hydration while infusing skin with a healthy glow.
