[Routine Help] Struggling with maskne. My routine doesn't seem to be helping. Is it time for Adapelene? | Kr Laser

My skin is combo/oily and very acne prone. Over the years, I have visited numerous estheticians and dermatologists and found a routine that worked. Used it for years and only got a pimple or two in PMS or when I eat much junk food.

Fast forward to the past few months. I work as a teacher and I wear a mask for many hours on end. My skin hates it. I’ve been breaking out like crazy and it’s really affecting my self-confidence.

Here’s what I do:- I use cotton masks since there’s a shortage of disposable ones. I swap my mask with a clean one every 2 hours or so. I wash the used masks thoroughly when I get home.

Morning:

* Wash my face with CeraVe Hydrating cleanser
* Apply Purito’s unscented centella toner
* Salycylic acid serum (I use this every other day)
* CeraVe’s mos. lotion
* SunDance MED unscented SPF 50+

Night 1/2:

* Purito oil cleanser
* Gentle wash with CeraVe Hydrating cleanser
* CeraVe mos. lotion
* TO Retinol 0.5%

Night 2/2 (twice a week):

* Purito oil cleanser
* Gentle wash with CeraVe Hydrating cleanser
* TO Glycolic acid toner
* CeraVe mos. lotion

I tried using SA cleanser at night but my skin felt kinda dry. I am now considering getting Adapelene and trying that. I don’t currently use TO’s red AHA which I usually LOVE because I have too many angry cysts on my chin and cheeks and I don’t wanna irritate my skin further. Any help is appreciated.
