Moisturizer with SPF: Andalou Naturals Argan Stem Cell Recovery Cream SPF 30 ($21.99)

Additional Step: The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution ($8.70)
To address your concern with uneven skin tone, I recommend incorporating a gentle exfoliating toner into your routine. This product contains glycolic acid, which helps to brighten and even out your complexion. Use this 2-3 times a week after cleansing and before applying your toner.
Optional: For an extra boost of hydration, you can add a facial oil like the Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Facial Oil ($26.00, 0.3 oz). It's formulated with blue tansy, which has anti-inflammatory properties to help calm breakouts, and squalane to balance oil production. Use a few drops at night before your moisturizer.
Total Cost: $61.62 (without facial oil) or $87.62 (with facial oil)
Remember to patch test each product on a small area of skin before fully incorporating it into your routine to ensure you don't have any adverse reactions. Adjust the frequency of use for the glycolic acid toner and facial oil based on how your skin responds.
