Let me explain my skin and current routine. I have very very acne prone skin and have since I was about 10. I went on Accutane when I was about 14 for 5 months, it cleared up my skin beautifully and I went acne free for about a year after but then my issue came back. I get a few pimples (cystic and whiteheads) on my forehead (I used to get much more on my forehead when I was younger, but less on my cheeks) and I have a lot on my cheeks (pics attached)

Sensitive Skin Routine: Reconsulting with Dermatologist

This routine I’ve had the past 6 months with little to no observed improvement. At night I wash my face using my Clarisonic Smart with the normal brush head using Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash, I then use a Stridex Maximum pad to wipe down my whole face, then I use Dermatologica Overnight Clearing Gel on the wider spots of breakouts on my face and sometimes I use Terminator 10 as a spot treatment on top of that. I then use Dermatologica’s Clear Start Hydrating lotion.

I use Dermatologica’s Sebum Clearing Masque as a full face mask probably once every other week, and I sometimes use it as a spot treatment before bed, as well as Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel as a microderm once a month. In the morning I usually just rinse my face with water and rarely wear makeup due to my high activity job and general laziness.

I have very very sensitive skin, and need stuff that’s gentle and not too drying. I also did try PocketDerm/Curology, but didn’t have much success. I’m considering picking that up again and reconsulting with my dermatologist on there. I’d love some advice for products that will help clear up my skin, and while these ones are great they are pretty pricy. I’d love products that also don’t cost too much, and i live in the US, so products you can get there. Thanks!
