you might be doing too much! keep it simple (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) with 1 soothing treatment (like the IUNIK toner or the skin1004 serum you have). Sometimes, it’s best to keep it minimal.

I think maybe take a break from using so many products... when my face acted up, I just use Cerave cleanser, a basic toner, and Cerave moisturizer.

I agree with @glowirene you need to take a break from using too much product. If you want to use toner, I suggest you use spray toner as it's less harsh than apply using cotton and doesn't spread bacteria all around your face.

I agree too.. don’t over exfoliate .. once or twice a week should be sufficient

My skin reacted so badly when I used too many active ingredients and the Picky peeps told me to tone it down so I just used a gentle cleanser, aloe vera toner, and a moisturizer to heal my skin barrier (enough sleep reeeeally helps a lot too). New pimples have stopped forming and now I'm easing my way through active ingredients once again. Using a serum that heals the skin barrier would do a lot as well. I wish you all the best, your acne doesn't make you ugly.
