In brief: TIme

Is usually the best answer. It also depends on how bad the acne is.
A warm wet washcloth (washing face) usually works well, sometimes the acne does get bad enough to need antibiotics. Also if breast feeding a diet change for mom may help improve it in the baby...With elimination of dairy being #1.
