What is my skincare routine missing ๐Ÿ’”

Growth serum, retinol and sunscreen! Because you have dry skin, I'd only cleanse at night. A double cleanse could be what's drying you out. Try a cleansing balm like Clinique's "Take The Day Off"

Salacylic acid is great for getting rid of sebaceous filaments

Re: What is my skincare routine missing ๐Ÿ’”

How long have you been using this routine, @Sherryl97? You've got a lot of chemical exfoliation going on and some of the issues you want to address (dryness, redness, breakouts) are hallmarks of overexfoliation. In regards to your morning routine, depending on your skin's tolerance using both the glycolic acid toner and the glam glow serum may be too much. Also, you didn't list one, but are you currently using a sunscreen?


In looking over your evening routine, are you alternating the cleansers on different nights? Using two water-based cleansers in one routine can lead to stripping your skin of necessary moisture. And again, I wouldn't add in the lactic acid serum in the same routine as the glam glow serum. Plus, if you're already using a glycolic serum then the lactic acid isn't really necessary as it does the same things as glycolic acid (both are AHAs). Though both are also already included in the glam glow serum as well.
