Skin Care Routine Confusion: HELP

I have Combination skin and I'm so very confused about how to care for it! Moisturizers, night creams, day creams, retinol, eye cream, microdermabrasions, blah blah blah. They all mean the same to me! I know they do different things but I can't figure out what order to use them in and if you can use two different products together. Like I would like to use a retinol at night but I also like using moisturizer at night. Can I use both? Right now I do the same steps in the morning and at night: I wash my face with an acne cleanser then I moisturize with a moisturizer that has salicylic acid in it. I'm getting fine lines around my eyes and I want to use an anti-aging cream but there are sooooo many! My head spins when I go down the skin care aisle. I probably look like the girl from the Exorcist. So my question basically is what should I use on my combination skin in the morning and at night when I want to control the oil, help erase fine lines and start preventative anti-aging products?

I know the feeling you are going through. It can be overwhelming to come up with a great skin care routine, and depends on your age and results that you want to achieve. From what you have said I suggest to keep it fairly simple. Use a good cleanser morning and night, a natural toner, and moisturizer with spf. Good facial masks are great to put all kinds of healthy ingredients on to the skin. I suggest twice-weekly facial mask usage. And for your under eyes, a natural eye cream is best that can diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. Good luck!
