Are triacneal from avene and skinoren effective for mild acne and red spots (oily skin) ?

In brief: Yes

Skinoren is Azelaic Acid and triacneal is retinaldehyde; both are good choices especially if topical benzoyl peroxide is too rough.
This should be plenty for mild acne; if you're not clear in two weeks, or if it's on your trunk, get with your personal physician who can add something a little stronger.
