This one for example is 2% Salicylic Acid and can be bought in Amazon.

That routine might be fine for someone with mild acne, and Niacinamide helps with pore congestion. However your acne is more moderate (vs mild), and for that reason I would suggest using Differin and Salicylic Acid (SA). If it is too much to use the SA cleanser twice a day due to dryness you can change it to only AM, and use your CeraVe cleanser PM.

If/when you go to a dermatologist most likely they will recommend a retinoid (like Differin which has adaptalene) since it’s a proven and effective first line treatment for acne. I have used a retinoid for years and honestly it’s what makes the most difference for me.

The mask from The Ordinary is fine for once a week if you want to try it. But is it not essential if you are going to buy the SA cleanser and don’t want to spend more money.

I recently (a year ago) became really concerned about my skin health and even less so ago I started to try to do something about it. Long story short, I stopped doing makeup to avoid strange chemicals on my face and went on a never-ending search for the perfect products and routine. But, I think I need help from people who have gone through this longer than I have, so please help!

My skin type is oily although that has been a little reduced with time and my routine. Acne prone, although not a horrible issue, just occasional, stubborn pimples usually before my period, some whiteheads but PLENTY of CCs. I’d say between II and III Fitzpatrick type, white Hispanic. Also, a bit of rosacea and very sensible skin.

I have been keeping a routine that while it’s been helping it’s definitely not my Holy Grail, which consists of:
-Cleansing: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash (AM&PM)

-Exfoliant: St. Ives Acne Control Face Scrub

-Toner: Simple Soothing Facial Toner

-Spot Treatment: Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Targeted Spot Treatment

-Moisturizer: Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer For Sensitive Skin SPF 15 For AM

Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid Lotion For PM

I have kept this routine for almost 5 months now, but after a whole day going through all of these posts(even at work!) I realize that maybe I haven’t been doing/buying what’s best for my skin type so I need urgent help! I’m the US, but my budget isn’t very large. I’m mostly here because I want to find the best cleanser for me. I have read the recommendations in the wiki, but those are pretty regular cleansers and I was wondering if I should stick with cleansers with 2% salicylic acid such as the one I use right now, or the ones you recommend like CeraVe will work better as long as I use something on the side for the acne? But EVERY, and I do mean every, recommendation would be incredibly helpful for me.

I’m all ears! (or eyes?)

Now here’s what I think will help your skin clear up by at least 70%. And yes, there’s more than 3 steps now lady!

1: Oil-free Acne Cleanser. Preferably combined with an exfoliatior in it. (calming ingredients: chamomile, aloe vera, exfoliator: Salicylic Acid (BHA). Cleanse oil, dirt, and sweat daily(!). Body temperature water. (I just do it in the shower each morning so I know it rinses off thoroughly) ps: Washing your face more than twice a day is prone to make acne worse. Your skin could dry out and start compensating by creating even more oil.


2: Toner. Witch Hazel’s strong antioxidant and astringent properties make it one of the most effective natural cleansers (so you’re sure you remove all your cleanser from above 👆) and acne treatments available. Reduces excess oil buildup and bacteria growth on the skin, heals infections, reduces redness and inflammation, and halts the development of blackheads and whiteheads. Filet of Aloe Vera, widely-known as one of nature’s best non-greasy skin moisturizers. Aloe is also nutrient-rich, also containing Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E, giving it excellent skin-brightening and anti-aging qualities.


3: Serum. Tea Tree Clear Skin. Anti-blemish, cooling and soothing (after the toner). Includes all the miracle workers named: Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, Retinol, Salicylic acid


4: Moisturizer: if you’re gonna start using acne treatments such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, you definitely need a good moisturizer to keep your skin from drying out. Without moisturizer, any skin type will dry out. But instead of skipping moisturizer, the key is the right kind of formula. Lightweight, water-based moisturizers work well for your skin.


5: Face Oil. I know, wtf she on about? I’m talking Jojoba oil as an effective acne treatment. It signals your skin to balance itself. Technically a wax ester instead of an oil, jojoba oil resembles human sebum. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance on your skin. Overproduction or blocked sebum can cause acne. So when you apply jojoba oil, your skin gets the message that it doesn’t need to produce more sebum. Ta-da!
