Hormonal acne/oily skin routine advice

Helo!!! I’ve been struggling finding a good routine for my hormonal acne. I’m diagnosed with pcos and I try to follow a low sugar/gluten/dairy diet and take Metformin and Inositol as treatments. However, I struggle with a lot of deep cystic acne around jaw and cheeks (beard pattern) and have lots of PIE and hyperpigmentation as well. I created a similar discussion earlier to ask for products and some of you guys were really helpful recommending products. I’ve added stuff to my shopping list aaaand - Would this routine be effective and appropriate to layer?

so far from what my aunt had experienced she got hormonal acne when she was on her early 20s i think and its not the products that helped her but she consulted a doctor and a certain antibiotics that treat hormonal acne. might i suggest never experiment on skin if have these because it will worsen the situation.

It actually looks like a great routine tbh. Idk if shower with BP could dry your skin though.

i used to incorporate a lot of ingredients too but nothing seems work for my cystic acne. so i focus on killing the bacteria first by using benzoyl peroxide acne treatment every night. but since it can be quite drying, soothing ingredients and moisturiser is a must. after it started to calm down then i apply niacinamide and the rest of serum.
