OSEA MORNING + NIGHT SKINCARE ROUTINE

As February is self-love month, I figured we could address of aspect of self-care that I am getting better at managing. Skincare has become a priority in recent months. As I work on protecting my skin in my 20s, it’ definitely a work in progress. I try to be conscious of external factors that could be affecting my skin (think: weather, what you consume, and stress), I try to approach it with a steady mind and I completely accept there are days you skin wants a break!

I’m introducing a favorite botanical based skincare line of mine: OSEA is a luxury skincare line based out of Malibu, California.
