hydration! and fixing my uneveness!!

I have tough skin and the vitamin C works super well on the sides of my face and forehead. The unevenness of my skin tone has been improving! I use the BHA/AHA on my nose and cheeks usually. I also have acne so I use Rohto Mentholatum and CORSX acne patches the website is missing my other lotions from Rohto Mentholatum.

Hello there! 👋love the daily sunscreen and lots of hydration! 🥰 I’d say you could cut out the Rohto Mentholatum in the PM, because their whitening emulsion includes the same humectants, no real need to double down on them. Instead, I’d suggest a moisturizer for PM - the skin needs emollients & occlusive, otherwise the humectants (hyaluronic acid, glycerin) can be pulling the water out if the skin, making it actually dryer in the end. For blemishes, it could make sense to look into a retinoid and azelaic acid - but it would be important not to overdo it in terms of irritation (Melano CC is strong and could decrease the skin tolerance to other actives). Have you ever tried a retinoid before?

yeah! Thank you for the clear advice! I forgot to add that I use the retinoid from the ordinary .5% once a week!

Oh, that’s great! Retinoids are probably the most effective actives against spots, so that’s great that you can tolerate them! I’d try to increase the frequency of the retinoid to 2-3 times per week (gradually - please don’t rush!). You can also apply the retinoid on top of a moisturizer, it reduces the irritation risk as well
