What do you think of my regimen?

Hey there, my name is Mike, and I am a 22-year old student from CO. I have been suffering from acne for quite some time, and was even on Accutane for about six months; with drastic improvements. Even though that was nearly five years ago, I still continue to break out. Here is my current regimen, and tell me what you guys think.

Thanks -

Mike (I can include pics, too!)

MORNING - (really don't do anything to my face in the morning, besides maybe a pad or two of salicylic acid; like Stridex)

EVENING -

1. Wash face with a gentle cleanser or just use a pad or two of Stridex

2. Once the pad's medication dries on my face, I then apply AHA cream from Walgreens, and let that soak in.

3. Once that dries on my face, I apply Dan's Benzoyl Peroxide cream, let that dry, and then go to bed.

ANY ADVICE on AHA in particular?

I prefer clindamycin/benzoyl, instead of AHA/benzoyl; its highly effective and less drying.
