Retin A has been pretty effective in helping with my acne. However, lately I've been breaking out a little more than usual, which has resulted in some hyperpigmentation. I have access to bio oil, and am contemplating adding it to my skincare regime in hopes of treating the new hyperpigmentation in addition to some old hyperpigmentation.
I was thinking I should use it in the morning, but how, and after which step? Below is my current skincare regime (I'm an 18 yo female with oily/combination skin):
Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser for senstive skin
Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner
Use vitamin E skin oil as an antioxidant and apply to the undereye area and to hyperpigmention (I'm thinking about switching to a vitamin C serum)
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 35 (including undereye area)
Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser for sensitive skin
Retin-A Cream 0.05% (including undereye area as sort of an eye cream)
[after waiting until I feel like the retin A has absorbed a decent amount] Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for sensitive skin (including undereye area)
Any suggestions on how to use bio oil (whether I should even include it in my routine) and improve my regime are greatly appreciated!
