Added hydrated to my dry, acne prone and sensitive skin

I’m hoping to add more hydration (with fragrance fee products) without clogging my acne prone and dehydrated skin

Hm.. you are actually using good hydrating products, so I think it's not so much about adding but rather removing steps/ products that could be weakening the skin barrier. First, I'd skip the morning cleanse completely and only use the LRP Gentle Wash in the evening (no double-cleanse)- this guide to cleansing can explain why: https://whatsinmyjar.com/skin-concerns/all-about-cleansing-wimj-cleansing-guide. I don't think you need a hydrating serum and a mist - both are good products, but it is a bit of an overkill. Plus, you are using a light-textured moistruizer, and it might not be effective enough to stop the extra water (that all this hydrators are binding) from evaporation. You could consider trying a heavier textured cream ideally with linoleic acid (unlikely to clog pores): https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/beautystat-universal-pro-bio-moisture-boost-cream. it doesn't contain niacinamide, so you could consider adding a serum with it (instead of your current mist & serum), for example: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/vichy-mineral-89-probiotic-fractions-recovery-serum-for-stressed-skin-with-4-niacinamide
