You may benefit from a procedure called Photodynamic Therapy or PDT which can address both active acne and acne scars. Although FDA-approved to treat sun damage, it is used off-label to help control active acne and improve skin texture.
Unfortunately, there is NO effective home remedy that properly addresses acne and acne scars. You may try over-the-counter salicylic acid-containing washes + differin to help with active breakouts. However, to properly address acne scars, you do require physician-strength treatments to include the following: photodynamic therapy, laser resurfacing, microneedling + PRP, chemical peels, and/or oral prescriptions.
