In brief: Whatever works

It depends on your definition of "best".
Some people can do w/ simple face (&body) scrubs & food trigger avoidance. Others require topical lotions & prescriptions. A third type (like me) was prescribed retinoic acid, but that kept me out of the sun for more than 2 yrs & I lost my spot on the varsity team (couldn't practice). All treatments have differing potency & side effects, so talk to ur docto

In brief: Few helpful tips

Acne forms when oil mixes with dead skin cells and clogs pores, creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
Cleansing your skin daily with an anti-acne type of soap. Use a soft sponge and make sure you clean every part of your body -- including hard-to-reach areas such as your back. But don't cleanse more than twice a day. Exfoliate weekly to help prevent pores from becoming clogged
