How is this looking?

I have been building my skincare routine and am about to begin retinol cream. I’m curious to know if you all think the rest of my routine will help prevent peeling and purging. Anything you think I should add? Remove?

I’d say salicylic acid or azelaic acid (would not recommend to combine in one step) and a moisturizer

Am I not hydrating enough?

I think I have enlarged pores, but I'm wondering if my skincare isn't helping it, or I should add something? It's definitely starting to show It's age (late twenties). I just want it to look vibrant again, not blemished and dull. PD traveling for work, so planes and makeup are overkill I'm assuming.

I hear you! Frequent air travel and the lifestyle connected with it is hard for the skin - I've definitely been there! There are a few things I can recommend: - Skip the morning cleanse, just splash with water - it will reduce the damage to the skin barrier and preserve more hydration - Add a daily sunscreen, broad spectrum SPF 30 at minimum - I'd recommend going for a more hydrating moistruizer, and using it daily (possibly even twice per day - before sunscreen in the morning if your skni feels dry with the sunscreen alone and as the last skincare step at night). There are a few options here: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/moisturizers/moisturizers-without-spf-and-night-creams?ingredients_by_name=Niacinamide&ingredient_groups_by_name=Ceramides&sortBy=Irritancy - Consider using a retinoid at night, starting 2-3 times per week, and gradually increasing to every night. If you go for a retinoid, I'd skip the exfoliating treatment altogether - retinoids speed up the skin turnover, so you don't need the extra help. Exfoliating while using a retinoid can lead to sensitivity and increase dryness. A few product options: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/verso-daily-glow, https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/youth-to-the-people-retinal-and-niacinamide-youth-serum, https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/indeed-labs-retinol-reface-retinol-skin-resurfacer - I would not recommend using the sleeping mask from Tonymoly, it's not better than a basic moisturizer, but contains irritants.
