In brief: Bacterial scrubs

Benzoyl peroxide kills acne bacteria, the underlying causal factor. Salicylic Acid unclogs pores which cause black heads/spots.
Various companies have products with these ingredients. Additionally, glycolic acid and azeleic acid have been shown to renew and normalize skin. If this doesn't work, you'll need to see a dermatologist.
