In brief: Not a treatment

While Betamethasone may reduce very inflammatory acne temporarily, it a very strong steroid and should not be used on the face.
It can cause thinning of the skin, discoloration, small blood vessel formation, and even create more acne. Try instead over the counter preparations with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. If you still need more treatment, please see your dermatologist.
