Regimen:

Day:

Wash with Cetaphil (will use Johnson & Johnson Purpose when runs out)

Benzoyl Peroxide on the spot treatment to cheeks and forhead, sometmes chin

Neutrogena Moisturizer (have SPF 15 and sensitive skin formulations)

Night:

Wash with Cetaphil (Johnson & Johnson when runs out)

Retin-A Micro .1% pea sized amount (started 2 weeks ago or so)

Neutrogena Sensitive Moisturizer

I am wondering if I can add a glycolic acid face wash (its called Clean & Clear Steam- shower facial) once or twice a week in place of Cetaphil and/or an AHA/BHA face mask? I have a lot of superficial whiteheads and clogged pores and red marks left from nodules. Would this be too harsh/too much exfoliating?

I have very oily skin, but it does get dry in a few areas mainly around nose and mouth b/c of the RAM and BP. My moisturizer sort of stings my face a little too (on a side note if anyone could recommend that would be great).

Depends on how sensitive your skin is. You could try it and if your skin starts burning or feeling irritated then just discontinue use of the glycolic acid product.
