For best results, use a combination of anti-acne products. However, avoid applying multiple products simultaneously. First, you should try applying different products on different days.
For example, apply acids or retinoids on one day and benzoyl peroxide on the next. It is important to develop a scheme where products combat the acne issue without causing skin irritation or hypersensitivity.
Ideally, retinoids, antibiotics, or acids should be used once a day at night to avoid discomfort from not-always-pleasant textures. On the contrary, benzoyl peroxide can be applied twice a day.
As everyone's skin is different, as well as its reactions, the anti-acne care routine should be, ideally, selected by a doctor. If such an option is unavailable, gradually introduce different products into your skincare routine based on your skin's unique needs.
