Hi ,
Adaplene takes 6-8 weeks to start working.Not sure on why you doctor suggested Adaplene combined with honey(ayurvedic).In any case please continue using adaplene and also wash you face before applying adaplene with a mild face wash.If pimples do not start subsiding after 6 weeks please do let me know.

For pimple scar marks please talk to your dermatologist to start Glycolic peel once the active pimples are gone.
Diet : avoid oily ,spicy food . Drink lots of water.

pimples are sign of oily skin
you should keep the skin dry and airy
non spicy non greesy non fatty and non oily food
lot of warm water
no toxic soaps ointments oils on ares of skin
you can change to clindamycin gel bd and tretinoic aci gel at night
switch off light after applicationf gel as it reacts with light
you may apply for long may be 3 months which can clear your disease
