Even skin and texture!

Looking to balance skin tone and texture while retaining moisture without being oily. I do a pretty good job but my skin reacts easily and starts to flake as soon as I think the routine is going well.

I actually use Ormedic cleanser from image and not vital c. Sometimes will use a balm/ pre cleanse for first cleanse instead. I also use eminence recovery oil at night and I think 1% clindamycin day and night. I use skinbetter alpharet clearing serum at night as well

hm... Is the 1% clindamycin a prescription from a derm against acne? If yes, I'd suggest to check in with them and ask about why this active was chosen and what alternatives / combination therapies are an option (for example, how about retinoids?). Antiobiotics as a single therapy against acne is a little odd (but your derm obviously had some reasons, so I'd really rely on their advice). I'd also ask your derm to go through your full skincare regimen with you and remove products that are not helpful & are irritating. This is probably everything with fragrance (natural & synthetic).
