Go to a pharmacy and buy some 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, and some soap. You can get generic benzoyl peroxide very cheeply, and it is just as good as the brand names.

Wash your face with soap and warm water before bedtime, and apply the benzoyl peroxide to the areas where you get acne.... forehead, nose, cheeks, chin.

Your acne will get better progressively. You may need to increase the application to twice a day, depending on how you go.

Benzoyl Peroxide might not be so good
I didn't use OXY10 (10% benzoyl Peroxide) for one night (2 days ago)and i have tiny bumps all over my face? My face is also very dry now. The bumps developed yesterday morning.
I lived with severe acne for two years. I treated them with Tea Tree Oil from The Body Shop. It slowly went away but then I developed oily skin so i started using OXY10 but now my skin is even worse! And I don't even know what it is because it's not milia, and it's not acne.

I was also suffering from bad acne then i read in one article that Aloe Vera gel is very helpful for treating acne and I applied. I was surprised Aloe Vera gel really works.

One of the best things I've used lately is Calamine Lotion, used for treating poison ivy. (not caladryl thats the creamer stuff, but may be ok also) The calamine is more watery. It has zinc oxide, which I have seen in some over the counter acne stuff. I use it on spots at night time. I have sometimes put a thin coat all over face and go to bed. It seems to suck up oil and dry up zits really well. I also use an olive oil based bar soap. Doesn't have all the chemicals that some of the liquid type cleansers have.
