Melasma reduction, bright skin, is my routine ok?

I'm 40 yo, little wrinkles, very pale skin with melasma on forehead and a couple of sun spots on the cheeks.

Small stubborn blackheads on nose and chin only, occasional hormonal pimples on chin, deep and impossible to pop.

Melasma on forehead, dry/sensitive skin, blackheads on nose and chin.

Do you use a sunscreen?

You've got great products. I would say just listen to your skin and cut back if there is any dryness or irritation, as there are many actives in here.

I'd reduce cleansing - drop the hot cloth cleanser and consider not cleansing in the morning. Otherwise you are using great strong actives that help against pigmentation. Agree with @Meredith that it's key to watch your skin reactions closely to avoid irritation. Best of luck on the journey! 💙
