This product does help with acne since it keeps your face cleansed, but if you are looking to treat acne specifically you should choose a different product. This one doesn't have an active ingredient for fighting acne.
This doesn't help with severe acne, just more of zits. You might want to try something a little stronger for acne, although this keeps my skin clear. I don't break out with acne, I just get those random zits.
