Well,I do have terrible acne and I found that my skin type is sensitive skin and it makes me harder to find the right products that I could use to reduce my acne.That is when I tried Clinique 3 Steps Skincare Regime and it really works for my acne and now I have less breakouts after 3 months usage and I only need to work on my scars from my previous acne to improve my skin complexion.Since Clinique 3 Steps works for all skin types,I would recommend you to try this product since it has the basics of skincare regime and work wonders on your skin.However,you could also try these homemade remedies if you want to improve your chance of healing.Good luck trying these at home(:

Honey Paste-Another easy and effective homemade acne treatment is to make a paste of honey with cinnamon and nutmeg. All you need is about one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and about half of it nutmeg powder. Add some honey to make enough paste to cover the inflammed area completely. Just lie down as honey may dribble down. Wait for 10 to 15 minutes and wash with luke warm water.

Here are some of the Home Remedies for pimple scars :

1. Tomato, which has vitamin A. Vitamin A, controls the production of excess sebum and also an excellent antioxidant. Slice tomato and apply slices directly to skin.

2. Your skin needs water to keep the skin plump, remove toxins and build new skin cells. Drink at least 80 ounces of filtered water a day to give your skin the quality and quantity of water it needs to reveal healthier, fresher skin.

3. Cucumber is one of the refreshing treatments used for the treatment of acne. Blend the cucumber into a paste and apply it on the spots. Leave it for 30 to 45 minutes and then wash it off.

4. The sandalwood and rosewater blend can be used as a facial mask and cab be instantly applied on the pimple areas of skin. Wear it during the night before going to bed.

AH! Stop! No medicine! Using a lot of medicines irrtate your skin, causing your skin to secrete more oils causing more pimples because it’s so dried out to begin with. I has BAD acne and I don’t anymore, every now and then a pimple here a pimple there but never an outbreak! Use Olay Body Soap (Bar form, I like the anti-againg formula just ebcause it makes your skin firmer, but any is fine). Use St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub, and Olay Regenerist Serum. The Olay Bars cost $2.70-3.50 for 2 bars, Apricot scrub is $3.00 and the Olay regenerist is about $14, but they all last for at least two months, sometimes longer, depends on how often you apply it and how much you use, but do that twice a day (soap) first, then scrub, then lotion, only do scrub and lotion once a day, in the morning, and soap in the venings before bed! Soon you’ll be acne free and it’s CHEAPER than Pro-activ and it’s non-irritating and it works!
