Acne struggles

I've recently been stuggling a lot with acne, I've had a in the past and found it to clear however this time it is not and seems to be getting worse. I have terribly dry skin so use a hot cloth cleanser to remove my makeup which I try to wear minimally and only a couple of times a week. I also have been using a benzoyl peroxide cream which is 5% as I previously used a higher percentage which just further dried my skin and did not affect the acne. This cream too doesn't seem to be making much of a difference. I also tried going on the pill but if anything this put my hormones out of whack and caused worst acne. Help please!
