In brief: Benzoyl peroxide

This depends on the severity.
You can start with over the counter benzoyl peroxide 2.5%, higher strengths are also available. If this is not helpful, you can move up to using benzoyl peroxide and another agent such as salicylic acid. Beyond these, you may want to see a doctor who specializes in the care of acne. There are many excellent prescription options available.
