Skin type: light combination skin, moderate acne, some wrinkles & fine lines

What is working for me:

Aveeno Clear Complexion cleanser
Nucelle - 10% Mandelic Acid Serum morning & night
Neutrogena 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide morning & night
Eucerin Extra Care moisturizer with 30spf
Manuka oil or Oil of Oregano on spots
Queen Helene Mint Julep mask occasionally

I recently went through an unusually severe outbreak. Nothing over the counter helped and I didn't want to go on Retin A or use other harsh remedies. The benzoyl peroxide took a couple weeks, but my breakouts have significantly decreased. I think it made a huge difference when I added the Mandelic Acid. Mandelic acid is a strong alpha hydroxy, but it has none of the irritation of other aha's. My skin is completely evened out in tone and red marks disappear MUCH faster. It is also good for aging skin. Honestly, I noticed a big difference in the tone of my skin in just 2 days.

I like both the Manuka and Oregano oils for spot treatment. I have also just started adding a drop or 2 of oregano oil to my cleanser as an additional antibacterial.

I haven't used the mask in a couple weeks because I haven't really needed to. Hopefully things will continue to improve.
