Can I use an exfoliating product for my acne even if I have sensitive skin?

Your situation of sensitive skin and acne is common and people with that combination do best with a gentle cleanser for dry or sensitive skin, finacea, and occasional exfoliation (i.e., two to three times per week) with a low strength exfoliating product (e.g., 1% salicylic acid or 5% glycolic) applied each time for a short 15-30 minute period instead of overnight.
