Hi! this is my first post on this website and i'm looking for possible ways to help improve my skin. 

Lately, my acne has been making me not want to hang out with my friends or see anyone because i'm embarrassed. I know i shouldn't be embarrassed and that acne is a normal thing but it stresses me out.

All my friends have only like one or two pimples at a time and then there's me. I'm feeling so insecure and i just want to find drugstore products that will work.

Heres some information about my skincare routine and acne.

Every zit i have leaves a dark mark even when i don't pick. I think it's because i'm biracial. I believe i have moderate acne but i could be wrong. i have combination skin. My outer cheeks and nose are usually completely clear.

Morning :
- i wash with neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser 
- apply clean and clear dual action moisturizer with salicylic acid
- apply neutrogena sheer touch face sunscreen (only to hyperpigmentation)

- i wash with neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser except with a rubber scrubber thing from sephora
- spot treat with slightly diluted apple cider vinegar 
- apply clean and clear dual action moisturizer again

Add to the night routine benzoyl peroxide (you don't need prescription for that). Ideally you should also use adapalene and clindamycin but those require prescription.
