Even facial tone

My face seems to get red easily. I don’t know if there’s a way to really fix that. It’s extremely sensitive. I also need to find a good sunscreen that doesn’t pill or sit heavy

Yes, you are right, it is not possible to "fix" getting red easily (also you don;t want to get rid of it completely, it's a natural blush 🥰), but the stronger your skin barrier is, the more resilient your skin gets to the environment, and this helps to reduce the redness. I'd recommend to stop your vitamin C serum fully: it contains a few irritants that can make redness worse. Also please make sure you rinse off the micellar water with normal water after cleansing - you don't want any residue on your skin (you could check out our guide to cleansing here: https://whatsinmyjar.com/skin-concerns/all-about-cleansing-wimj-cleansing-guide. Instead, I'd add an azelaic acid product to your routine daily in the AM - for example, https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/revox-just-azelaic-acid-10 or https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-ordinary-azelaic-acid-suspension-10. You could also consider adding a Niacianamide to your PM routine, for example, by switching your moistruizer to this one: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/dermageek-nourishing-facial-night-cream or adding a separate serum like this: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/purito-centella-unscented-serum And yes, sunscreen would definitely help to reduce the redness over long term and protect your sensitive skin from premature aging more broadly. This could be a good option: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/supergoop-mineral-mattescreen-spf-40-pa (I'd start the search for the sunscreen you can use daily among products that mostly use mineral UV filters - mostly zinc oxide. If you don't find a one with a good texture, then the next choice would be in the organic (so called "chemical") filter category, then I'd look at smth like this: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/la-roche-posay-anthelios-invisible-fluid-facial-sunscreen-spf-50)
