Alcohol dries out your skin. Find a cleanser that suits you, a more gentle one would be better for your skin as it won't strip your skin of its oils, although that depends on how bad your acne is. Along with that, eat healthy, avoid things that will clog your pores like foundation, avoid touching your face a lot.
Wash your face with face wash.. using regular soap just makes it worse and doesn't clean your pores as good :) Remove any make-up or face products you put on in the day before to go to sleep. There are vitamins that help the process for growth and help clear up your skin too :D
don't stress. put rubbing alcohol on the pimples to dry them out so they could go away.
