Topical, limit dairy: Try using some topical retinoids or azelaic acids to reduce the discoloration that can result from having acne. Hydroquinone may also be effective and is available in a lower strength other the counter. Although controversial, there may be a link between excessive dairy and high sugars when concerning acne formation.
