acne can be treated with local applications of cremes, some antibiotics, retinoids and LASERs.
LASER though expensive ( costs upto 5,000/- ), can clear the face off active acne and acne scars. The results are quite dramatic and patients simply love their skin after LASERs

1) Avoid oily/fatty/spicy food. Include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in diet.
2) Don't allow dirt and grim to settle on face and wash three or four times a day.
3) Regular exercises for half an hour.
4) Look out if there is any dandruff, it can be a cause of acne.
5) Minimize stress level.
4) Check if there is any hormonal problem associated.
