I changed my routine a bit that I use only pure water to wash my face on the date that I don’t use Sun block. After wash with pure water for 3 days I then wash with Acne aid on the next day. (I wash my face twice a day)

Also I add 2% liquid BHA in my routine. I use it after clean my face in the morning and evening. This really help to clear black head and dead skin. Then I scrub my face once every other week. I actually use Benzac only when I have breakout once in a while.
