will using these products affect my future skin?

Is anyone else worried about how the products your using now might affect your skin in the future? All these acids and stuff we put on our faces, i cant help but feel that im doing more harm than good. Im scared that if i stop using my creams/lotions i will breakout. Heres a list of everything i've used:

Panoxyl/Benzoyl Peroxide 10% and 5% - for 3 and half years

Zineryt Topical Lotion - for a couple of months

Elicina Cream - about a year on and off (not used frequently)

Chinese herbal cream with tablets - few weeks

Skinceuticals C + AHA - couple of days

Dalicin T Lotion - few months

Freederm - about 3 weeks

Cooking Salt - every now and then to dry up spots

I mostly use panoxyl/benzoyl peroxide, cleared up all my back acne (for now). But this stuff can really dry up your skin, im worried ive overused this and maybe ive destroyed the top layer of my skin. The Zineryt lotion is anti-inflammatory, doctor told me not to use it too often. Using salt stings alot but this is the quickest healer ive found. I keep wondering if this is going to damage my skin in the future...
