how to remove acne on face?

Scientific Rx: If only on the face, a good start is benzoyl peroxide, if not clear in 2 weeks, add prescription topical clindamycin, plus a retinoic acid derivative if there are blackheads. If still not satisfactory, add a systemic antibiotic that's right for you, this will usually clear you up. Good luck.
