Products to improve texture of skin?

I have huge pores, literal holes on my face from cystic acne, bumps and acne scarring. As you can imagine all that together doesn't look too good on the skin. I'm very new to skin care. My current skincare routine is just cleanser and moisturizer. What are some products that have helped change your skins texture?

@Sicase Adding an acid toner like Tarte Knockout, a Vitamin C like Sunday Riley CEO or Drunk Elephant C-Firma, a moisturizer like Murad’s Nutrient Charged Water Gel  and an SPF of 30 or higher will give you the results you want. Skincare can be confusing and scary. I think those 4 products are staples for a solid, simple routine. I would use them like this: Morning... cleanse, Vitamin C, Moisturizer, SPF. Night...Tarte Knockout, Vitamin C, Moisturizer. It’s simple yet effective. 

Re: Products to improve texture of skin?

I'd start by staying away from products that contain drying alcohols and silicones. As for treatment products I'd suggest products that contain AHAs + BHAs to remove dead skin cells as well as clearing out your pores. Vitamin C has a brightening effect on the skin, so that could be a great option for potential pigmentation from the acne. Additionally, you must add a sunscreen to your routine. If you do not add a sunscreen you will potentially do more harm than good to your skin. It should be used every single day, rain or shine. There are still harmful UVA rays (the ones that go deep and cause aging) on cloudy rainy days. Definitely stay away from physical scrubs, but consider adding a gentle physical exfoliator.


For specific product recommendations it all depends on what your budget is.
