I heard honey and saltwater works for acne and also coco butter helps remove acne scars. Is this really true?

In brief: No

The only non-prescription medicine that really helps acne is benzoyl peroxide.
You owe it to yourself to get prescription treatment; all acne is manageable today with topical / oral meds, and a dermatologist can fill in, laser off, or abrade the scars to make them less conspicuous if that is your wish.
