My skincare routine (AM & PM)

It's been 4 years since I shared my skincare routine! I am still using some of my my tried-and-true products but I also added a few new skincare items to my AM & PM routine. I thought I 'd do an updated post just in case you're interested. Since I am home most days, my skincare routine is very simple.
Morning routine:
After washing my face with warm water, I use this facial exfoliator to exfoliate my face. The Pumpkin & Spice exfoliator is gentle enough to be used in your everyday skincare regimen. It's formulated with organic pumpkin seed oil and natural spices to provide important nutrition for the skin. This exfoliator isn’t too harsh or wimpy. Just perfect to keep my skin smooth. Most importantly, it doesn't suck all the moisture out of my skin. After every exfoliating session, it's so important to moisturize. The Biossance gel moisturizer is one of my tried-and-true beauty products. I've been using it for years. It's a fantastic (and clean) product. After moisturizer, I put on the Tatcha pore perfecting sunscreen *20% off*. I've gone through so many tubes. Another amazing product that I cannot live without. Since I work from home, I don't wear makeup most days. This is basically my morning skincare routine. It's pretty simple.
Night routine:
First I use this micellar cleansing water to remove dirt and oil from the skin. This stuff works so well. Then I wash my face with warm water. If I wear makeup during the day, I'll use the Foreo to clean my face. Otherwise, I start applying the PCA skin hydrating serum. This is a medical-grade skincare product. It's expensive but totally worth the price. This is my 3rd bottle. It has a silky soft texture and feels amazing on the skin. I can definitely see a difference in my skin when I use the serum. Next, I apply the Osmosis Vitamin A serum. This is another medical-grade skincare product. Vitamin A helps increasing skin nutrients, collagen production and elasticity for restoration of the skin rejuvenation process. Next, I apply the Pumpkin & Spice eye cream. To be honest, I was hesitant to try this. My absolute favorite under eye cream is the Tatcha revitalizing eye cream but it's expensive. I am always on the lookout for affordable options and I was pleasantly surprised by this product. Only been using it for 2 weeks and already notice a difference in dark circles and the overall smoothness of the skin around my eyes. I then finish off my night skincare routine with the Emile Gordon lip balm.

Once a week, I use the Pumpkin & Spice mask to give my skin an instant boost. This product contains natural clay, pumpkin seed oil, vitamin A, C, zinc and antioxidants and pumpkin spice. It's so good for your skin. I apply a semi-thick layer to clean, damp skin and let it absorb for 10 minutes before rinsing off using warm water. I love how clean my skin feels after a clay mask.
