Is there more I could add?

I don’t mind the high risk for skin irritation. I have very sensitive skin but added these one at a time and my skin soaks it all up and loves these products. It took a LONG TIME to get here. Is there something missing from my routine? I like a smooth, dewy face. I have healed a lot of acne scars which is great and almost never break out now. I scar easily. I have pores I would like to be smaller and blackheads I would like to address on my nose. I feel like I have tried almost everything for the blackheads and I can’t seem to find something that does really well. I also want to make sure I am nourishing my skin enough to help with wrinkles and signs of aging. I welcome the change in my body but I do like to take care of my body. you’re going to get wrinkles and have imperfections no matter what.

Any suggestions would be awesome. I am also wondering about a night mask since I live in such a dry area and this is my first winter with a solid routine. My skin gets dry without it but I worry with the change in season that it will get dry. I apply skincare on an as needed basis with that kind of stuff

Nice routine! I've seen people recommend reusable silicone masks, and using them a couple of times a week when they're just using their nourishing/hydrating products (no harsh actives like retinols or acids). I also saw a Youtuber that said that a gentle moisturizer with petrolatum like Cetaphil Body Moisturizer is one step removed from slugging, so that could also be added at the end of your routine for dryness in the winter. Otherwise, for general anti-aging, I would try to find a retinol that you can tolerate more than once per week--ideally five times per week, if not every other day. I don't know much about blackheads, but people with sensitive acne-prone skin seem to like niacinamide serums and azelaic acid.
