You are on tetracycline I would cut out the mask, unless your derm recommended it. The tertracycline and tretinoin should help on their own. How long have you been on that regimen? Try to start with the basics. Tetracycline and tretinion are a good start. Instead of the pore cleansing mask, a simple cleanser may help.
