How is this looking?

I have been building my skincare routine and am about to begin retinol cream. I’m curious to know if you all think the rest of my routine will help prevent peeling and purging. Anything you think I should add? Remove?

Your routine is looking very good! To minimize the risk of a reaction to the tretinoin (Retin-A), I'd only recommend to change your cleanser to a super basic gentle one, and only use it in the evening (just a splash of water in the morning is enough). Once your skin adjusts to tretinoin, you could re-introduce the Glycolic cleanser a few times a week. Examples of super gentle cleansers for the adjustment period: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/cleansers/cleansers-for-sensitive-skin?sortBy=Irritancy
