Thanks for writing to us.
To treat acne and acne induced pigmentation follow these steps
1) use a salicylic acid based face wash like saslic or neutrogena
2) use water based moisturiser and sunscreen like acne moist and suncote
3) use adapalene benzoyl peroxide gel like Deriva BPO gel in night over acne lesion only. Apply Kojic cream over pigmented spots
4) discuss the options of chemical peels with your doctor. It will reduce both acne and pigmentation.
5) avoid facials and greasy cosmetics. Get your comedones extracted regularly

Hope that would help in treating your skin concern. Should there be a doubt or query, please write back.
Take care
