Thanks for writing to us.

HH lite cream is a pigmentation reducer cream containing mometasone, tretinoin, hydroquinone. The cream is basically meant to be used in pigmentation disorders. It would be of no help in acne and may flare up acne too as it contains steroid.

To treat acne
1) Use face wash meant for acne prone skin like cetaphil oily skin cleanser.
2) Apply clindamycin gel and deriva gel over acne lesions daily.
3) If having black/whiteheads get them extracted regularly.
4) Avoid oil based / greasy cosmetics and face massages.

Also visit a dermatologist nearby to get your skin examined so that if required, an oral anti acne drug like azithromycin or isotretinoin can be started.

Hope that helps.
Take care
