Should I add anything else?

what kind of serum or face oil should I add to my skincare, if needed? I'm trying to get clear skin. Or do you think I can achieve this with what I am currently using?? I have this face oil, AkarSkin - Southe Face Oil I got from Ipsy, can I use that?

I think you don't have to add anything, you already have a routine that brilliantly covers the basics (broad spectrum daily sun protection, good moisturizer and gentle cleanser) + effective retinoid to target blemishes. If you'd like to add even more power to the routine, you could consider an azelaic acid product (aim for 10%). I wouldn't add an oil, and the AkarSkin is risky in terms of irritation (formula breakdown here: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/akarskin-soothe-face-oil). If you feel that you skin is getting too dry, you could take a break from Differin 1-2 times a week.

Moisturizer before differin slows down the differin absorption. It can be a bad thing if your skin isn't feeling sensitive and dry, and you want the fastest results out of differin. But it is a good thing if you want to reduce the irritation and dryness. It still gets into the skin and does its work, it's just happens slower.

Do you think The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% is a good one??
