My skincare routine

My skin has dry spots but using heavy products, especially cream textured ones tend to break me out I’d like to - minimise scarring from hormonal breakout on chin - take care of fine lines on forehead area - treat dark circles under my eyes - add an anti ageing product to my routine Could anyone suggest me what I can add or remove from my routine?

To help with dryness, I would recommend to cleanse in one-step only in the PM, using the Avene Face Cleansing Foam (and skip the balm). Just use a generous amount of the foam and it will be enough to remove the sunscreen, non-water-proof makeup and daily pollution. You can also skip cleansing in the AM altogether, it will help your skin barrier to get stronger (and you'll have less dryness). You might also want to decrease the frequency for your SK-II Treatment Lotion Toner (it contains exfoliating salicylic acid, and it might be too much for your skin when applied daily). I would also recommend you to switch your moisturizer to a more hydrating but not-fragranced product. For example, this is a good option: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/bonjour-bonajur-green-tea-water-cream. For an anti-aging product, I'd recommend you to look into retinoids. After a daily sunscreen, they are the most studied and effective actives that help repair photodamage, stimulate collagen production and even out the pigmentation. They also help prevent breakouts. Here are a few products you can consider: - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/verso-skincare-4-super-facial-serum (expensive range, but a great formulations) Some budget-friendlier options: - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/indeed-labs-retinol-reface-retinol-skin-resurfacer - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/clinique-smart-clinical-repair-wrinkle-correcting-serum - https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/the-inkey-list-retinol-serum
