Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

I have always used Clinique but recently realized that these aren’t the products a dermatologist would recommend. I want to use products backed by science. (First picture is my old skincare routine) I have been picking up new products recently with ingredients backed by science but I don’t like how they work together so I’m trying to fine tune a new skincare routine. (Second picture is of some new products I have been trying)

The pictures switched places 😂 Clinique is the old routine, the picture with all the other products are new ones I’ve been trying out.

The most important part that I think you are missing is a daily broad spectrum sunscreen. Clinique actually has good options (and many other brands too). The most important point is that you need a broad spectrum sunscreen, and SPF 30 or more. Clinique is not a bad brand, many of their products are excellent. I don't think you need the clariying lotion though, and also you could consider skipping the cleanse in the morning to protect your skin barrie. We've also just recently updated our guide to anti-aging skincare - it might help you to figure out what actives you'd like to focus on: https://whatsinmyjar.com/skin-concerns/anti-aging. You can also try our routine builder, it allows you to select from all products in our database that fit the criteria on actives: https://whatsinmyjar.com/skincare-routine-builder Overall, apart from a sunscreen, I'd consider trying a retinoid at night and possibly an ascorbic acid serum in the PM. It's a bit hard to see the exact names of the products on the picture, but we should have them all in our database, so you could check the actives. You don't have to worry too much about actives interaction - most anti-aging actives do not interfere with each other (unless you are literally mixing creams before applying). It is only important to watch out for skin irritation: avoid exfoliating too much, and also ideally introduce one strong active at a time (for example, start with a retinoid for a couple of weeks and then, if your skin is getting on well with it, add an ascorbic acid serum)
