I'm an Asian 18 yo female with oily/combination skin (one or both of those, not sure actually). My biggest concerns right now are hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores/blackheads (on the nose and t-zone area to either side of the nose). These are the two skin issues I find to be the most difficult to solve. I have a nasty habit of squeezing out my blackheads/pores because they annoy me so much and there doesn't seem to be any other effective methods for getting rid of them.
Below is my current skincare regime:
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)
Does anyone have any tips on how I can modify my regime (is my order wrong? Should I use toner at night also? Etc etc), I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if you know of any tips for my two issues, please share!
Thanks so much!
