Am I Over Doing It With The Moisturizers?

Recommended Posts

So because of my long history of horrible skin. Severe acne followed by scarring etc, I have now become very strict with my skin routine.

After my morning face wash I use a moisturizer/eye cream and then sunscreen.

If I'm going out in the evening I just use a moisturizer once again after I wash out the sunscreen.

Before I sleep I again use a night cream and eye cream.

Am I over doing this?

It's been a long road and I finally have nice skin, so I'm obsessed with keeping it this way.

Also the night cream says it rejuvenated and prevents wrinkles. Ie. It's anti aging.

Should I not be using that at my age?

Thanks for any responses guys! Appreciate

That's what I currently do.

Only wash my face with water in the evening after gym. Face wash just morning and night.

Thanks for repose I appreciate

In my opinion, and based off of research , eye creams are a scam. Most of them don't prevent wrinkles, but rather help to temporarily smooth out the under eye with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and caffeine. The ones that do contain retinol are generally not strong enough to actually do anything. There's also no reason why your regular moisturizer can't be used under the eye.

If you're wanting to go with a good anti-aging product that has rigorous research and evidence behind it, go with Retin-a. It's also fantastic for acne. I use Tazorac which is a more potent form of Retin-a and combined with 2.5% BP twice a day, my 8 years of severe cystic acne are behind me.
