these have been fab for me in controlling excess oil/buildups & banishing breakouts/helping with redness soothing - whilst keeping my skin hydrated 👍🏼👌🏼🧡

I'd suggest trying 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel as a spot treatment

I use this but it's 5%. 2.5% would be enough and less drying, irritating. Any pharmacy/drugstore will have something similar.

Benzoyl peroxide is good for hormonal acne. Be careful to not bleach your clothes. Start with a cleanser or a low strength treatment, it's strong.
