try adding a toner in between your cleanser and moisturizer. also, consider adapalene gel 2x per week at night after moisturizing- only on the acne prone spots. adapalene helps regulate pores to prevent acne

Have you ever tried a retinoid? I think a combo of a retinoid every other night and azelaic acid in the AM might help.

I agree adapalene and azelaic acid are probably your best friend here! Sounds like maybe hormonal acne if it’s on the chin (that’s what I have). The only thing that really helped me for that was oral spironolactone from my doctor but a retinoid has also helped a lot.
