Dermatologist 's  Response
Acne treatment depends upon the severity and type of lesions. The treatment is given in the form of oral medicines( azithromycin/ doxycycline/ minocycline and/or isotretinoin) along with topicals( clindamycin, benzoyl peroxide, adapalene tretinoin) etc. As you said you want faster results, that can only be delivered after a thorough skin examination so that a personalised skin treatment can be suggested. However, you may follow these basic suggestions to prevent and treat acne
1) continue with saslic face wash. Use it twice daily
2) you any continue with Olay cream, if it suits your skin well
3) get your blackheads and whiteheads removed regularly and apply retino a cream in comedone prone areas
4) treat your active acne lesions with application of clindamycin gel and retino a cream.

Depending on your acne grade severity, oral therapy might be required, for the same consult a dermatologist nearby. You may also discuss the option of chemical peels with your doctor as peels give good results in short time and also take care of pigmentation and scarring. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
