It's possible that your skin is getting irritated and, as a result, more inflammation-prone (this, of course, is probably not the only cause - hormonal changes, stress, changes in diet, dry air can definitely contribute as well). I'd pause the BABOR Cleanformance Moisture Glow Cream and The Inkey List Vitaminc C serum (30% can certainly trigger irritation). Instead, you can try slowly introducing a retinoid - every other night first. A few product options: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/roc-retinol-correxion-line-smoothing-night-serum-capsules-x-30 https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/indeed-labs-retinol-reface-retinol-skin-resurfacer - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/zelens-power-a-retexturising-renewing - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/paulas-choice-clinical-0-3-retinol-2-bakuchiol-treatment (I'd say these last two options are best especially for sensitive skin, but they are pricey)
