I have used benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) for years and now my skin is immune to it. What is the next step?

In brief: Inflamed?
Inflammatory acne responds well to antibiotics but long term use often selects for resistance.
To reduce the inflammation, i like the at home use of the tria blue light system which all ages and skin types can use. Most patients also benefit from a retinoid preferably prescription strength as a mainstay for any acne regimen.
