Okay, 6 years ago i used Proactiv for about 2 years, then switched to AcneFree which i've still been using to this day.

My face in the last 4 months has been breaking out more than ever, and so much worst.

about 80% of it are cysts all around my chin and mouth.

Ontop of that, my skins very dry and flaky, and when i put my moisturizer [clean&clear oil-free dual action moisturizer] on these areas I seem to break out more.

I'm not sure if maybe my skin has become immune to benzoyl peroxide, seeing as i've been using it for the last 6 years.

Also, my cleanser [acnefree] might be drying my face out more.

I guess my question is:

If I have cystic nodular acne, can i buy a gentle cleanser that has neither BP nor SA as it's main ingredient, and just something that will cleanse my face.

Or will something simple cause me to break out more in places i didn't, and was washing my face with the BP controlling my acne from being worse then it is?
