Lighten pigmentation, reduce texture, prevent breakouts

While I like my current routine, I am running low on some of the products right now and am open to change. I want to keep my skin hydrated as I struggle with dryness and flakiness, especially now in the winter. Due to this I have some skin texture on my forehead and on the areas next to my nose. I also have some acne scarring that I'd like to lighten, as well as to prevent future breakouts. My breakouts are mainly due to 1) sleeping on my hands/arms (I have tried to stop to no avail) and 2) not having the energy to do my routine due to depression. I have tried to simplify my routine on low energy days, but I often feel confused as to what I can simplify to. My skin also gets oilier in the summer, so recommendations on adaptations would also be appreciated!

Sidenote, I love my Hada Labo toner and my snail mucin essence, so I don't want to replace those two. They saved my skin after a rough period of overexfoliation.

Skincare routine for dry/flaky skin with texture. I am also acne-prone whenever I don't wash my face regularly (due to sleeping on my hands/arms, which I've tried to stop doing), which happens more often than I'd like to admit due to depression. Whenever I do stick to the routine I get pretty good results, but I still have some acne scarring and texture issues from flakiness (especially on my forehead).
