In brief: Acne.

To really need two things.
First, a drying agent like benzoyl peroxide, which should only be used when you're out of the sun. Second, an antibiotic. Pimples contain bacteria, and eradication is helped along by including an antibiotic in your regimen. Clindamycin or Erythromycin creams would work fine.
