Studying your skin type is helpful to design what's best. If you have oily skin some advise not to use products with oils or moisturizers but use an acne gel product. Conversely for dry skin people recommend a cream based product. This is something you need to experiment with and test out for yourself. A combination skin is also very common which means your t zone may be affected the most.
We tend to think we should use a strong product but actually it is better to use a mild product for sensitive skin and when you use something too strong your skin can get red, produce more oil and get inflamed.
Do not let acne get you down as it is something most people go through in varying degrees. There are effective natural solutions. Sometimes by having pimples people actually grow inside and stop being judgemental since it is now apparent that it isn't fair to judge only on the surface.
