How sensitive is your skin? And what country are you in?

Hi there, England and it is quite sensitive.

A retinoid would be a good option - it helps prevent breakouts and prevents signs of aging at the same time. It can be irritating though, so it make sense to start slowly (skin gets adjusted to retinoids and tolerance increases over time). You can go for a gentle formulation, start applying every other night (after cleansing, before moisturizing) and gradually increase the frequency yo every night. Here are a few product options: - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/indeed-laboratories-nightly-care-retinol-reface - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-inkey-list-retinol-serum - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/roc-skincare-roc-retinol-correxion-line-smoothing-night-serum-capsules - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/paulas-choice-cbd-oil-retinol You could also add an azelaic acid serum, you can use it either in the AM or PM, before moisturizer/sunscreen: - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-ordinary-azelaic-acid-suspension-10 - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/garden-of-wisdom-azelaic-acid-10-serum

Ah, wanted to add - you could try to skip using cleanser in the morning, just splashing with water is fine - it can help with your sensitivity and make the skin less prone to inflammation (I know it sounds counterintuitive, but less cleansing often leads to less breakouts)

Update: My skin has improved so much! Dark circles and redness have lightened so much! I have less break outs on my skin too. The end of my nose has large pores and these are still looking a bit clogged. But other than that I am so happy.
