In brief: Get a real Rx

Drinking water and keeping your skin dry will not help with your acne.
It's a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease that can be a major personal and professional handicap. Get with your personal physician now. Topical and "folk / home" remedies will probably not clear your disease. If a systemic antibiotic and spironolactone don't clear you, please consider isotretinoin. Do what you must.
