Hey @MikaV05 I would suggest some resurfacing treatments to address dark spots. I also struggle with blackheads on my t zone and nose. I use a product with salicylic acid specifically the peter thomas roth treatment pads (not k beauty but they work). It is also super important to moisturize oily areas where blackheads are although it may seem counter intuitive. If you over dry your t zone your skin overcompensates with more oil creating more blackheads. I like dr jart+ cicapair gel cream because its water based, so it has no excess oil but still moisturizes. Good Luck!

Goodal Green Tangerine Vita-C Serum from Olive Young is kbeauty and super mild, effective, and feels weightless on the skin. It is meant to erase sun spots and hyperpigmentation. Niacinamide also helps with post acne spots and brightening. The Vita-C Serum also has a percentage of Niacinamide in it.

The products I'm going to mention that helped transform my skin (even my bf notices how dewy and glowy my skin looks without pointing it out) they sell at Olive Young (it's like korean sephora) and they do free international shipping on orders of $60 or more. The first thing that I think completely transformed my skin is double cleansing. It shrinks pore size, flushes away blackheads, exfoliates and keeps your skin supple. I use Ma:Nyo Pure Cleansing Oil. It also won best selling cleansing oil in Olive Young in 2021. Massage the oil cleanser for 2 min more or less, rinse off, then continue to use your water based cleanser or foam cleanser. You may or may not break out for the first week or so because your skin is purging and is deep cleaning. If you wear sunscreen, only cleansing balms and oils can effectively remove the sunscreen residue. Regular water based cleansing will not. Treat sunscreen as you would makeup. So investing in an oil cleanser is great all around. For a cleanser, I received a trial size of Ma:Nyo Purifying Soda Foam, and I actually really like it! I'm currently using a La Roche Posay cleanser and I 10x like the Ma:Nyo one more. I will probably buy the full size once i finish the la roche posay cleanser. Ive also heard really good things about Real Barrier Cream Cleansing Foam, but I have yet to try it. Now for serums, I use Goodal Green Tangerine Vita-C Serum. Vitamin C is super important to keep your skin blemish (sun spots, acne, wrinkles) free. And what's good about korean skin care is that they prefer milder formulas. So it's great for sensitive skin. Won't make you break out or cause irritation. This Goodal serum is all the hype in Korea right now. It feels weightless and does give you that glow you're looking for. I would also recommend using a hyaluronic acid serum (or toner) before the vitamin C serum. Just because HYA keeps your skin supple and bouncy. For toner, the best selling toner on Olive Young is the Round Lab Dokdo Toner. I've heard a lot of great things about it and it's great for sensitive skin. For masks, I buy a bunch of sheet masks from Olive Young and try to do one sheet mask a week. The same day and the day after, my skin will look so glowy and healthy. I also just recently purchased the Ordinary BHA/AHA peel solution (from sephora) and it works leaving your skin glass-like after, but 2 issues I've come across with this product is that 1. It makes my skin feel somewhat dry after and 2. It's really harsh on your skin so not really suitable for sensitive skin. But it does make your skin very smooth. I also use retinol at night time. Retinol is a game changer. If you use it consistently itll leave you with such smooth skin. If you use vitamin c, retinol and the occasional acid exfoliation I would recommend getting a skin barrier restore moisturizer. (Also sunscreen is a MUST. I heard the Round Lab Birch Juice Sunscreen is great) Also Innisfree has a lot of fragrance in their products. Their products aren't bad but if you have sensitive skin I would try to stay away from a lot of fragrance. It can cause irritation.

Hyaluronic acid is KEY KEY KEY. It massively hydrates the skin deep down and any thing you put over it like a great moisturizer will work many times better due to the Hylauronic. It's not an acid that burns or even tingles. It's 110% something women should use daily - especially us peri/meno women. It pumps the skin as well which helps hide lines and wrinkles (depending the depth of course. Sadly nothing outside of a face lift can get rid of deep wrinkles).
