Acne medication won't come off my face

I've used multiple acne creams and all of them get stuck on my face when I wake up in the morning. I shower and use a non-oily soap to try to wash it off but when I get out and look in the mirror, I always have white powder looking stuff stuck to my face. I usually have to wet a towel and wipe it off which is annoying, and I fear might be agitating my skin.

What can I use to get this stuff off my face in the morning?

i had the same exact effing problem when i was using topical creams such as tazorac, stievamycin, clindamycin.

the stuff would stay on my face even after i showered, washed my face with soap, etc.

& i had to scrub the cream off which scrubbed my pimples off because i applied the cream on my pimples. and now i am left with red marks on my cheeks. and more whiteheads.

my derm told me to wash my face.. i was like wtf i already do.

so i stopped using the cream because i found that they were making my acne worse because i had to scrub the whiteheads off.
