Acne marks & acne on face

I've had dry facial skin for years but my scalp is very oily. I get acne breakouts whenever I'm stressed for the past one year I've been very stressed due to entrance test and admissions etc and hence a lot of breakout on my otherwise clear skin. I have a tendency to pop the pimples and therefore now though the pimples are gone I've got black marks on my skin and the skin is extremely dry too. I apply sunscreen regularly and also oriflame face creams. I wash my face with himalaya neem face wash daily. What can i do to moisten my skin and get rid of the pimple marks. Ps. The marks are slowly lightening but i want to fasten the process before i begin college in June.

Do not apply hair oil. Use a ketaconazole 2% shampoo twice a week. Do not pop on your pimples to avoid further scar formation. For moistening the skin, you need to use a non comedogenic moisturiser. For advice regarding medications for acne and scars, kindly revert back with images of the affected area.
