Is your acne currently under control?  If not, that would be the first step.  My next tip would be to stop using the hydroquinone - it's safety is not entirely known (especially long-term).  After that, I would suggest all the following:

 

Sunscreen - daily

Retin-A (available by presscription) can speed up healing of scars/red marks and is excellent for active acne

Possibly a daily AHA

Plenty of moisturizer

Time

 

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix though.  Good luck!

yea my acne is under control, do you think a 10% glycolic acid lotion can help?
