looking to create a skin care routine

Hey all, Male aged 33 here, I'm super new to this space so please don't mind me. 

I haven't ever used anything on my face other than an face wash.


I'm looking for something that will help with anti aging, remove dark spots and just general upkeep. 


I have darker skin and I would say it's dry in some areas and not too acne prone.


Not really on a budget, just looking for something to use regularly.


Thanks in advance for your help 🙂


Re: looking to create a skin care routine

I think it’s always good to start with a simple routine and build up later once you’re used to that routine and know you don’t have any reaction @ChrisP80 . 

An exfoliant can help with dark spots and anti-aging. This can be harsh if you’ve never used it so should only be used every 3 days to start. I really like Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum or Farmacy Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL . For use at night. 


going into summer, even with dry skin I like a slightly lighter moisturizer. I have been loving the Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer 1.7 oz/ 50 mL lately !!! This can be used morning and night.


You should also definitely start using spf during the day! I loke Supergoop! SPF Bestsellers Starter Kit - they make good spf and this set let’s you try a few to see which you like best !!!
