This year has been one of the toughest on my skin with all of the stress life has been throwing at me lately.  I have been able to head off the stress showing up on my face with my awesome current regimen.  I have been mixing in a bunch of new types of products with amazing actives like vitamin c and hyaluronic acid and they have been doing the trick!

My skin care routine is loosely based around the Korean multi step routine.  I have found that their philosophy truly makes anyone’s skin better and can cure so many skin ailments.  This routine has made my skin so nice that I’m ready to go makeup free, even on social media.

I always start with an oil cleanser and my current obsession is the SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Cleansing Oil.  To me it’s the perfect oil, it does a great job cleaning off makeup and cleaning deep into pours and getting that environmental grime.  Massaging it into the skin in a circular motion for up to 5 minutes if you want a really deep clean.  As you massage you may feel a grit come to the surface on your skin.  This grit is the dirt buried deep in your skin being able to get pulled out this easily is huge.  

My next step is a foaming face wash.  Now at first I was not in love with this face wash admittedly, but I found it did exactly what it claimed and made my skin glow.  I’m currently in love with the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel. Glycolic Acid is one of my favorite ingredients in a cleanser and this one delivers in a serious way!

After I have thoroughly washed my face I move on to my toner.  The Pixi Glow Tonic is a cult classic for a good reason!  It refreshes the skin, instantly brightens and evens skin tone like none other.  My face always feels fresh, moisturized and clean after using it.

My very first serum is one my amazing best friend recommended to me.  IIt’s Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effector Vitamin C Serum.  I had a discolored patch smack in the middle of my forehead that made me so self conscious, even makeup didn’t totally cover it.  A couple of weeks and this serum made it disappear.  The giant dark spot like magic, poof disappeared and this was the magic spell.  I’m no longer embarrassed to go makeup free in public because of this one awesome product.  It’s also under $15 so you really can’t go wrong!

The second serum I use is the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic Serum, I find that this serum does a great job evening out my skin tone as well as overall softening.  It’s just a great skin smoothing serum for both tone and texture.

The Vitamin C Caviar Balm is the one item to try if you try nothing else from this whole post. It’s so creamy and amazing and makes my face INSANELY soft.  So not only does it moisturize my face but it brightens and evens tone.

Now my eye cream is such an amazing brightening, product I cannot get enough of it! Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream.  It makes my dark circles vanish and moisturizes like crazy helping prevent those fine lines!  Keeping that super delicate area moisturized is key to anti-aging.

My very last step is my killer moisturizer L’Oréal’s Revitalift with Hyaluronic Acid is hands down the best anti aging moisturizer I’ve found (and I’ve even used one infused with bee venom).  This has done an amazing job smoothing lines and lifting any sagging that has started.

Hopefully even using a few of these items on your skin this fall will make you feel confident enough to go no makeup (and if you are super brave post a photo on Instagram and tag me @jessdinius)

Let me know what you are doing for your fall routine.  I can’t wait to hear!
