My skincare routine!!

I have combination, dehydrated skin. I’ve been getting tiny bumps which could be hormonal or clogged pores. Can anyone suggest if products I’m using are suitable. These tiny bumps are so stubborn and I am not sure why I get it while trying new products. Is gel too light and not moisturising enough for me? Please suggest your opinions. Thanks

I can't judge all the products, but it general I would say: don't use a cleanser in the morning, just clean with water. Cleaning too much can be irritating, especially for dry skin. Personally I don't like foaming cleansers, I prefer balms or gels, that don't strip the skin - but I haven't tried the CeraVe one, so if you like it, I'm sure it's fine.

Only use the niacinamde once per day - you don't need that high of a concentration twice, it's a waste of product and it might be irritating. I see it's also in the toner, so maybe use that only once as well, after cleansing in the PM.

The moisturiser looks good for dehydrated skin. I do miss an SPF in the AM - CeraVe has excellent moisturisers with SPF for dry skin!

Thank you for your replies. I guess it could be due to skin barrier damage. No matter what I applied, nothing is helping. I have tried cerave spf50. That’s when I started getting small tiny bumps on forehead and chin. It is so easy to get pores but so hard for them to get rid of quick too.
