Any advice on my routine?

I know I should get a different moisturizer for nightšŸ˜¬

I have small little bumps along my forehead and the pores on my nose and cheeks are very noticeable. Any advice? Thanks

I would skip the micellar water in the morning, and also make sure to rinse it off with normal water when using at night. You might be getting an irritant reaction from micellar water residue that is left on your skin after cleansing.

I would also stop your weekly mask (it can also contribute to the irritation), and apply a salicylic acid product 2-3 times per week instead. Something like this could work:
