After advice from this forum (thanks especially to @Shannon_Staff) (and reviews everywhere!), I’ve purchased a few products that fall under the Deciem umbrella but mostly The Ordinary. I’ve read through the regimen guide on when to use the products based on whether they’re oils, water based or emulsion - but I’m still confused and would love some advice on where/when in my routine I should use my products - and when not to! I have a few products arriving this week so I want to be prepared.
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Vitamin C 23% + HA (I know not to use with the Niacinamide)
Retinol (from Skinstitut)
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 (I’ve been mixing a little with the moisturizer as it helps the moisturizer go further and I need less)
Natural moisturizing factor + HA (last step)
I have the The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer and Hylamide Finisher HA Blur and LOVE both, and know where they fall in the regime
I’m going to try these for a while, and then perhaps try Rosehip oil if I feel my skin still needs something extra. Feel free to suggest any other products that you think I’m missing though for my 45 year old dull combo skin, large pores and slight redness with occasional breakouts.
