Another thing I can highly recommend doing is keeping it simple. The more complex your routine the more likely you are to miss an evening and then another, which isn’t too bad if it's a few days here and there but to see true results you need to maintain your routine. If you know you don’t have much time in the evenings for a multi step skin care process then just start with a couple of products and if you wish to you can increase and add more steps in the future. I'm a great fan of keeping it simple and natural as much as I can, less is more sometimes.
Lastly, you need to know your skin and the end goal for you. Just because a certain product is all the rave it doesn't mean you necessarily need it.
Know what works for you, know what works for your skin.
Stay safe and well
