thanks for posting your query.
acne can be quite distressing.

you need to follow a routine of cleansing, sunscreen , creams daily.

cleanse your face with cetaphil cleansing lotion for acne prone skin thrice daily.

sunscreen needs to be used daily , neutrogena would be a good choice.

creams would be:-

clindamycin gel on the active acne lesions in the morning and Retin A 0.025% cream at night on the entire face.

Retin A needs to be applied only at night, start with coming it for 2 hours and then gradually increase the time interval to keep it overnight.

this will help in treating acne and make your skin look better.

please let me know if you have any queries.
