Hello 👋! I'd consider introducing a retinoid. This type of actives can help with both acne and anti-aging. You can learn more here focusing on acne specifically: https://whatsinmyjar.com/resources/acne-clogged-pores/wimj-guide-for-retinoids-part-2-acne-clogged-pores

definitely looks like u are over using the exfoliants, which can lead to more texture, sensitivity, and acne. i would stick to using one of the exfoliants twice a week, or no more than three times a week. i would also start only washing my face once a day in the PM, becuase it’s usually not necessary for most people to cleanse twice, becuase cleansing twice can lead to the same problems as over exfolting. i would also add in another hydrating product or a barrier support product, seems like u want a simple routine so i would recommend a hydrating milky toner (make sure it doesn’t contain any exfoliants like bhas ahas or phas, because u already have one in ur routine.) hope this helps and hope it’s readable lol 😅
