you have 3 serums/ampoules in your pm routine. perhaps you should cut it down to 1 and see how your skin reacts. you may be using too many products at once which could cause your skin to freak out. as you have oily skin the number of layers may also be too much and cause you to break out.

-how many times a week do you use the inkey list retinol? -do you use the ordinary niacinamide and the 2%BHA chestnut toner together? •it can dry out your skin, because of that it can be producing more sebum which can lead to breakouts •10% niacinamide is very high, percentages around 4-5% have shown the same result with less chance to irritate your skin -if your skin is sensitive, don’t use viatmin c and niacinamide together. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing bad using them together however it’s not a bad idea to give your skin en break from so many products -is there something you’ve changed? •diet •lifestyle •your skincare routine? (have you had the same routine for a while(like atleast 1-2 months consistently) if so than it can’t be the product causing you to break out, otherwise it would happened earlier) •amount of sleep •stress •weather changes i hope you’ll respond so i can help you further!

@gngsam maybe use the niacinamide serum in the morning and the snail mucin one in the evening as I’ve heard snail mucin also works great for acne as well as niacinamide

It could be the jumiso or the missha sunscreen. Are you having a lot of stress lately, sometimes it is the matter of hormones🤔

I second the Missha sunscreen. The fragrance irritated my skin and over time caused small breakouts
